Head east from Addis Ababa on an overland journey to two wonders: Harar and Awash National Park. World Heritage–listed, the origin of the walled city of Harar dates from before the thirteenth century and it is considered to be the fourth most holy city of Islam. Wander the 368 alleyways squeezed into just 1 square km, countless mosques and shrines, lively markets and crumbling walls. Awash National Park lies in the lowlands east of Addis Ababa, and straddles the Awash River. The dramatic Awash Falls, where the river tumbles into its gorge, is a site not to be missed. 46 species of animals have been identified here, including Beisa Oryx and Swayne's Hartebeest.
