Joanna Lumley, OBE FRGS, says "Absolutely stunning book. It has made me think of all I missed and reinforced my determination to return to Ethiopia. The book is a masterpiece, a masterclass on what every handbook should be."
Ethiopia - Travellers' Handbook is a book conceived for the discerning traveller, the package tourist and those people wishing to have a quick reference guide with a range of facts at their fingertips. The book provides a clear understanding of what there is to see and do in Ethiopia.
The background and reference information conveys a wide-ranging view and it has been designed to be uncomplicated and straightforward to use, without having to constantly refer to abbreviations and symbols. It is a travel guide with a user-friendly presentation that allows quick reference to topics of interest. The many map illustrations have been designed to be uncomplicated and easy to follow. The book, which is full colour throughout, is packed with information, images and illustrations. As well as people, places and fauna, the book covers many aspects of Ethiopia including myths, history, development, political history, topography, Ethiopian Orthodox Church, language and reference data.
Colonel John Blashford-Snell OBE, one of the greatest travellers and explorers of our time, has written the foreword. Other prominent organisations and people have contributed articles illustrating their exciting and heart-warming involvement with Ethiopia that are intended to further inform the traveller. The book contains completely independent travel advice. 600 images, 45 maps and illustrations
