Harar

Trip Planner Africa  /  Ethiopia  /  Harari Region  /  Harar
The walled city of Harar--named a World Heritage Site--lives and breathes tradition. Small houses sport wooden balconies and Islamic calligraphy, numerous mosques, lively markets, and charismatic people adorn hundreds of Harar's alleyways. This unusual look and way of life provides a glimpse of the past, which is also celebrated by drinking a sip of coffee here prepared in traditional way. A key activity in Harar is witnessing the nightly hyena feeding in front of the city walls. When it comes to getting around the Old Town, you won't need transportation, as alleyways are narrow and walkable. If you want to go outside of the city limits, ask for a car. Plan how to spend your time in Harar and other destinations in Ethiopia using our Ethiopia holiday planner.
