Highly-praised author and Africa expert Philip Briggs turns his attention to Ethiopia’s top visitor attractions in this new guide. Ethiopia Highlights hones in on the most alluring historical and natural attractions of a vast country which ranks among the most scenically and culturally varied destinations in Africa.
Covering the country’s main highlights, the guide is aimed mainly at visitors who plan to join an organised tour. Easily portable it is an informative travel companion for first-time visitors to Ethiopia. It concentrates on the renowned northern historical circuit, where more than 100 magnificent mediaeval rock-hewn churches vie for attention with the UNESCO restored castles of Gondar and ancient giant stelae of Axum. Other highlights include the sparkling Rift Valley lakes, the walled Islamic citadel of Harar, the traditional African ethnic cultures of the remote Omo Valley, the forbidding wastes of the Afar region (source of the oldest human fossils ever uncovered) and the green mountainous expanses of Simien and Bale National Parks, with their wealth of unique mammals and birds.
