Harar: Ancient Walled City

Scroll down to content

The ancient walled city of Harar, a UNESCO world heritage site, is a bustling centuries-old cultural and trading crossroads… extremely dusty in the dry season and extremely muddy in the rainy season.

The fast way to get there is to fly from Addis Ababa to Dire Dawa, then take a minibus from Dire Dawa to Harar.

Must do: Visit the shrine of Abadir, founder of Harar. Watch and possibly join the famous hyena men

    1. You just made my day! That is the greatest compliment you could give me. As you can see, my style is quite simple… and I only use a point and shoot… with almost zero editing… maybe a crop here and there. My intent is to show the viewer EXACTLY what I saw without any interpretation or gimmicks… and to give them a chance to experience what it was like to be there. All the best to you in photography and life! Cheers!
