Day 2: after breakfast, Fly Addis Ababa - Dire Dawa, and drive to our hotel. It's preferable if we fly together so we`ll book our flights on the 1st day together. The price range is $85-95 for a one way flight. You can add this amount to the payment and send it to me if you want me to handle the bookings for you. Because the area is hot, we will not be able to visit any places until evening. (Don't forget to bring comfortable clothes for the warm weather). (Dire Dawa: The Queen of the Desert) As the second-largest city in Ethiopia, Dire Dawa (ድሬ ዳዋ) is a unique place that intertwines history, culture and a railway legacy, revealing a multicultural port-town that refuses to be ignored. To see the beauty, we'll travel through the city in the evening, try local food (street foods) Bajaj will be the transportation we use to travel around. The ubiquitous three-wheeled motorised rickshaws that zoom through the city’s wide streets, around its carousel-like roundabouts, and along its tree-lined promenades, which also serve as perfectly crafted shaded pathways. Day 3: Visit Kafira Market and drive to the archaeological site, which lies around two kilometers from Dire Dawa. Here you will be able to see fascinating historical artefacts, including pottery, tools, animal bones, and cave paintings, which have become the main draw for visitors alongside the fantastic views offered from the high-altitude position. (That high-up position means it’s quite a steep climb to get to, but it’s worth the hard work). Day 4: drive to Harar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located 53km from Dire Dawa.

Day 4; after launch, we'll have time to take a rest and settle in our rooms until 4:00 p.m. At 5:00 p.m., travel around the city using Bajaj, visit local restaurants, and try cultural foods. - Visit the five walls of the city, enjoy some kuti (an herbal tea made from the leaves of coffee plants) at a local café, and visit the preserved homes. -Relaxing and connecting with the locals until evening and after 6:00 p.m. feeding the hyenas time:) (I am telling you, this will be very exciting for me. Because I have never been near them. I hope it will be the same for you). Day 5: After breakfast, Drive back to Dire Dawa.
