Obelisk of Axum reviews
Cool historical artifacts. This was obviously once a great ancient civilization. Best to just pay the price for a guide because there is little to no info about anything. The museum is very limited but it comes with the price of admission.
In the heart of what is now Ethiopia, you may find jungles, rivers and quite possibly some monkeys. You could also encounter some major cities, bustling full of people. And of course, you might always stumble across a 79-foot-tall obelisk. That's a possibility because Ethiopia was once home to one of the world's greatest trade-based empires, called the Kingdom of Aksum.
