"Packing List" Ethiopia Packing List Tip by Mash

Ethiopia What to Pack: 16 reviews and 16 photos


Luggage and bags: The best is to take a backpack and a seasack to put it inside while carring on the bus.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: For nationalparks is the best to take trakingshoes.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: suncream, antibiotica, lariam against malaria, electrolyt tablets

Photo Equipment: In the big towns in Ethiopia you will often find also photo-shops to develope your positiv or negative films. Developing is not expensive but to buy the films especially slide films is expensive.
You will also get mignon bateries and some special photo-bateries there.

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: When you stay outdoors, it´s better to take your own tent because the rentable tents are often broke, and snakes or other animals or insekts will get in. It´s also usefull to take a mosquito-net and a torch for the night.
