Danakil adventure

How about a Danakil Adventure?

Its an incredible trip with visits to the mineral lakes and deposits in the Danakil Depression and a night ascent of the live Volcanic crater – Ertale.

You will see caravans of salt and the salt being extracted from the desert floor.

A typical trip departs Mekele on day 1 in the morning (around 9 or 10am) , and returns to Mekele in the afternoon of day 4 – 4 days and 3 nights. Costs depend very much on numbers, we will provide you with top quality 4WDs with experienced drivers and a top class guide.
