This was the highlight of my trip to Ethiopia, the owners of the tour agency, arranged everything seamlessly. Every day on my 4 day tour had at least one amazing site to visit the Erta Alle volcano, Dallol coloured pools, the salt flats, hot springs, salt lake, salt mines etc. Food was very good as was our driver "Daniel"
I chose Ethio Danakil Tours because of the group size (other agencies take up to 30-40 people and this was only 12 people in 3 vehicles) and because someone, I believe on wikitravel, raved about This tours.
I recommend plenty of sunscreen, perhaps a hat for more sun protection, a couple snacks for when the drive is longer, hiking shoes, some warmer clothes to sleep in for the cool nights (in the dry season at least). Only criticism was the outside toilet anywhere situation, which I've heard is being addressed by all the tour agencies collectively.
I fully recommend this trip with the guides, chef, armed escort and drivers provided!
Daniel you're awesome, thanks again!! #danakil #ethiopia #africa #afar #mekelle #tigray #danakildepression #ethiodanakiltours #travel #travelphotography #travelblogger #travelholic #travelguide
