Safety in Ethiopia - Bahir Dar

edited September 2015 in Expat Advice
Hi, i got job in bahir dar university n is it safe to travel there..


  • Few people advised me that bahir dar is not safe. Now next week is my flight. I m ready cancel my ticket n even I want to knw if it is safe for a women to travel alone from India to bahir dar euthopia
  • As a woman from India you are probably prepared for the situation in Ethiopia. Bahir Dar is one of the country's tourism hubs and is comparatively safe. The problem areas in Ethiopia are mainly the borders. There are no travel alerts for the region you are visiting. Crime is mostly petty - the kind of thing you are used to guarding against in India. You should be just fine.
  • Thank you Ella
