I am planning to go on a 1-year worldtrip, starting with the Nile & Beyond Tour on April 25. Afterwards, I'll continue crossing Africa on my own until arriving in Capetown sometime in August. I haven't figured everything out yet in order to remain spontaneous but would like to avoid unpleasant surprises in terms of personal safety.
Has anyone recently done such a tour and can provide me with some tips? I am particularly interested in information about Etiopia. Can someone recommend accommodation in Addis Abeba? How safe is it to travel overland from Etiopia to Kenya these days?
And last but not least, if anyone's planning to travel in the region in the coming weeks, would you like to get in touch?
I look forward to hearing from you!
