Product Description

Review

“The Bradt Guide has almost everything you need to read about the country’s history, tourist attractions and hotels, and proves itself to be an invaluable companion while in the country." SX News

 

"Thorough and reassuring, it provides all the practical and background information to make readers leap from their armchairs and visit this vast, magical country." The Daily Telegraph (UK)

"Essential reading for anyone with the remotest interest in Ethiopia ... a complete reference book to Ethiopia as well as an excellent travel guide." Travel Africa

"Highly personal and informative guidebook ... his enthusiasm is reflected in every chapter." Business in Africa

"An indispensable handbook for anyone wishing to visit Ethiopia." The Guardian(UK)

From the Back Cover

With typically infectious enthusiasm, Philip Briggs introduces a country whose endearing people and rich heritage confound common expectations of desert and drought. Comprehensive background information and full details of "new" off-the-beaten-track locations--like the highlands of the Guassa Plateau, refuge to the endangered Ethiopian wolf--make this the essential guide to a country full of surprises.

*Historical sites, including the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela--the unofficial eighth wonder of the world

*National parks and mountain regions

*Detailed information on culture, history, and wildlife

*Where to stay and what to eat

*Amharigna language section

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By S. Patten on Dec 23 2011
Format: Paperback
This guide was so helpful during my visit to Addis Ababa, Lalibela, Gonder and Bahir Dar. There was a great balance of travel logistic information, hotel/restaurant recommendations (generally bang-on), history explanations, and off-the-beaten-track recommendations. My only criticism is that many of the prices are outdated and a general rule was to double the prices indicated in the book to get an idea of the actual prices (especially entrance fees).

Ethiopia, 5th
I am planning a trip to Ethiopia and I needed a reference with which to begin my research. The Bradt guide to Ethiopia by Phillip Briggs contains detailed, relevant information and served as the foundation for my trip plans.
Briggs thoroughly details the main tourists attractions as well as numerous, less known destinations. I have been able to familiarize myself with the historical, cultural and natural sites that I intend to visit.
Based on the reviews of tour operators contained in this book, I was able to contact and hire an experienced, professional tour guide for my trip.
The Bradt guide also provided a basic understanding of customs and traditions - including some useful Amharic words and phrases and travel tips and suggestions for preparations and for functioning within Ethiopia.
I feel well-eqipped to embark on this adventure of a lifetime, thanks to this well-written and well-reseached travel guide.
**Addendum:
I spent three glorious weeks, hiking the SImien Mountains, touring Addis, Lalibela, Axum, Gondar and the Omo Valley. My guides and drivers were all wonderful. Everything was chosen and booked ahead of time, using the Bradt guide by Phillip Briggs. I had several opportunities to experience unplanned, spontaneous adventure, of course; but the guide provided the foundation for the most amazing, satisfyingly soulful trip of my life. I will be forever grateful.

Format: Paperback
This is the most recent and most useful of the small number of guidebooks for Ethiopia available in the U.S. Descriptions of places to see were clear and informative, and the sections on how to get around, where to stay, good places to eat, and other tips for each town were accurate and well-researched. This book also contains useful sketch maps of many towns; these are now FAR more accurate than those in older editions, and I found them easier to use than similar maps found in other guides. There is also a thoughtful section on general issues related to travel in Ethiopia. I found this far superior to the other commonly available guides I own for information on Addis Ababa, the so-called "historical circuit," and the lowland desert areas (information on this last region is pretty scarce, but this book has more than others). The book is focused on providing useful travel information and not on long descriptions or photographs; if an informative guidebook to use while travelling is what you're looking for, this one is your best bet. (Be sure to get the newest edition, though-- the previous ones weren't nearly as good!)

I went to Ethiopia to see the children I sponsor through the Christian Children's fund. This guide was very helpful in preparing for the trip and I reread many parts after I got there to help understand what I was seeing. I wish I would have had more time to see the historic sights in the north and to go on an safari. I hope to return again someday for a longer visit.
The Ethiopian people are the friendliest I have ever met in a foreign country.

Hi all of you, I did travel 2 years ago with the "The Bradt guide". This guide is the best on the marketplace. Met many people with the Lonely Planet and it seems there are an amazing amount of flaws in this onz. The Bradt is not perfect, sometimes it's a little bit inaccurate. But it was a very useful tool during my trip. Ethiopia was my best travel experience up to now !!! Thanks Philip Briggs. Just go.

Briggs's book is the best travel guide book on Ethiopia. His coverage of Ethiopia is fair and balanced. He seems to have excellent understanding of the Ethiopian culture and his book does a great job at explaining Ethiopia to the rest of the world. If you travel to Ethiopia, and I hope you do travel, this book will not disappoint you.
