Camping in Ethiopia is almost the only way to visit the most beautiful, undeveloped, and unspoiled areas of the country. Some recognized campsites are provided in National Parks and other popular tourist areas, but finding somewhere to camp is seldom a problem. One word of caution: vervet monkeys and baboons are fond of picnics and will enter any open car or tent in a flash!
In the national parks and most highland areas, campers may pitch a tent, c1imp in. and enjoy a good night's sleep, untroubled by worries of unwelcome night visitors. Country people are for the most part, pacific, hospitable, and co-operative.
