“With the change of itinerary, I really enjoyed the Dallol even with the very early morning start. There were a few early mornings start at the beginning of the trip which didn't bother me, but I feel this needs to expanded in the trip notes. Ethiopia is a beautiful country and this trip gives you a brief insight into it.”
