    What is the walking like in the Simien mountains?

    It is a stunning area but you should be prepared for some long days walking at altitude. The longest day we did was about 10/11 hours but the average is about 7/8. The scenery is amazing, going from low grasslands up on to the escarpment, following valleys lined with tiny villages but without any roads. It can be demanding but well worth it!

    Is it easy to get around Ethiopia?

    You should be aware that, especially in the more remote areas and outside any cities, that the roads can be pretty rough and ready at times. Some drives can be long and dusty and you should be prepared for this. Saying that, there is always something to watch from the van, so you'll never bored!

    Can I get an Ethiopian visa on arrival?

    Yes, it is very easy for British passport holders. It costs $20 and you just join the correct queue when you arrive into Addis airport. When I normally come through, the line for those who have gotten the visa in advance is normally longer and slower than those getting it on arrival! Brendan Phelan - Customer Operations

    How should I take my money to Ethiopia?

    The local currency is the birr, which is closed currency meaning you cannot get it outside of the country. ATMs are limited and can be very unreliable when it comes to UK or foreign bank cards. In this case, you should take your money in cash, and change when you arrive. Sterling can be changed at the airport, but dollars would be best outside the capital, so maybe a mix of both.

    How do I compare trips for my next adventure?

    To compare trips for consideration, you can add them to your 'Shortlist'.

    During your search for your next adventure you can save 'holidays' to your Shortlist and compare trips. For this to work correctly, you must be signed in during your 'user session'; i.e. during your time on the Exodus website. These will then be saved in your account (don't have an Exodus website account?  Sign up now!).

    The Shortlist menu item (top of every page) only appears when holidays are added. Adding holidays can be done by clicking on the 'Add to shortlist' with the 'Heart' symbol on any 'Holiday' page above the 'At a Glance' section, or in the 'holiday' panels within Search Results pages, or in the 'You might also like...' section at the foot of the trip page viewed. The selected holidays will be saved into your account for consideration and can be removed there, as well as from the 'compare trips' page from the menu link located at the top of every page.
