4.0 out of 5 stars comprehensive 29 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very good guide covering all that is important in these three countries and the only guide that I am aware for Djibouti and Somaliland. The authors have visited every corner of these three countries so you know all the information is original.

I bought the Kindle version which only had a few duplicated pages and no missing text, faults that often seem to occur with Ebook versions. Personally I wish I had bought the paperback version as I like to flick back and forwards and mark the actual passage of interest which I could not do easily with the electronic version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good choice for Ethiopia 18 Jan. 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been using Lonely Planet guides for years, however, when preparing for the trip to Ethiopia, I read on some travel forums that Bradt guide is much better. And because it was our first trip to Africa and I really wanted to have the best book available with the most information, I bought both.

I can now say that Lonely Planet's guide to Ethiopia is good and Bradt's isn't really any better. Of course there are parts that could be improved but I would say the same about both books - funnily, what one book was missing, the other one had and the other way around.

But overall, if you're used to Lonely Planet/Rough Guide structure and you feel comfortable using their guides, go with this one. Bradt's guidebook is simply much more descriptive which I personally found a bit confusing.

And just for clarity which part of the guide book I'm referring to, we travelled (on our own) to Addis, Danakil Depression (a 4-day trip with a local travel agency), Lalibela, Gondar and Simien Mountains.

A good and useful book on Ethiopia and Djibouti, but quite weak and superficial as to Somaliland.
