COMING SOON: a downloadable travel guide which contains comprehensive information about money, local customs, expectations for the trip, and travel tips and tricks.
Upon arrival at Bole International Airport (ADD), please proceed through Immigration Control. After you pass through Immigration (where you will pay a $50 fee if obtaining your visa on-arrival), please proceed to the baggage claim area. Once you have retrieved your luggage, you will pass through Customs. Here you may be subject to a random luggage inspection. Once you have cleared Customs, our representative will be waiting for you outside of Customs with a sign that reads “The END Fund”. They will direct you to your driver outside.
If you do not see our representative waiting for you outside of customs, please contact Elevate Destinations’ ground partner Dawit Teferi at +251 91-133-5722.
We encourage you to pack lightly and in soft-sided bags or backpacks. Since mules will be carrying your bags on the trek, we request that you use soft-sided bags or backpacks. If you do need to bring a hard-sided suitcase, you can store it at the hotel while on the trek. Laundry services will be available at hotels on this trip, so you can refresh your clothes after the trek. Please keep in mind the luggage restriction for the domestic flights on this trip:
- Checked luggage: 1 bag; maximum 20 kg (44lbs)
- Carry-on: 1 bag; maximum 7 kg (15 lbs)
