Ethiopia geogr. (r) Addis Ababa, Simien Nat. Park
Ethiopia geogr. (r) Addis Ababa, Simien Nat. Park
by Gizimap
Edition: Map
Price: 7.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Map of Ethiopia !, 10 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
<Gizi Map> is an excellent brand. 'Sudan/South Sudan' proved invaluable to retrace the steps of Alan Moorehead's explorers of 'The White Nile'; The same applies to 'Ethiopia' for A.M.'s other masterpiece 'The Blue Nile', which narrates the plight of the early Europeans in Abbyssinia. These maps are highly recommended for any tourist and they include most - if not all - historical sites as well as all modern places of interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars On the trail of the explorers of the Nile., 6 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great map of the region including the area of the neighbouring countries that fit on the map - no blank spaces across the borders. This is everything I expected from it and more ! Includes archeological sites and historical places that were visited by the early explorers of the Nile ( Speke - Grant - Baker - Alexine Tinne - ... ) Very recommendable .

5.0 out of 5 stars Tales of an african veterinary., 18 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you love animals and you are fond of stories about life in Africa, this is an absolute must.
Dr. Cran arrived in Kenya just after independence ran like a bonfire through the african continent.
People have to make do under new circumstances and the dear vet has to cope with underequipment and a
huge workload. His never failing optimism and wonderful sense of humour make for entertaining tales.

2.0 out of 5 stars Uganda : land & people, 28 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very studious book about Uganda's history, politics, ethnic groups and social structure.
From a tourist's point of view very boring and non-informative.
