Philip Briggs has been exploring the highways, byways and backwaters of Africa since 1986, when he spent several months backpacking on a shoestring from Nairobi to Cape Town. He first visited Ethiopia in 1994 to research the Bradt Guide and has since revisited it several times to update more recent editions. He has visited more than two dozen African countries in total and written about most of them for specialist travel and wildlife magazines including Africa Birds & Birding, Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Travel Africa and Wanderlust. He still spends at least four months on the road every year, usually accompanied by his wife, the travel photographer Ariadne Van Zandbergen, and spends his rest of the time battering away at a keyboard at home in South Africa.
Ethiopia: The Bradt Travel Guideby Philip Briggs
In this updated third edition of Ethiopia: The Bradt Travel Guide, Philip Briggs invites you to share his sense of wonder at a country he describes as 'the most welcoming, enjoyable and uplifting I have ever visited'. He introduces a majestic landscape, a diverse natural history, the richest historical heritage in sub-Saharan Africa, and an exuberant and welcoming people who are 'quite gloriously bonkers'.
