The Danakil is located in Northern Ethiopia, in the Afar department. Danakil Depression is known as the ‘hottest place on earth’ but that title does the place so much injustice. The Danakil region is so much more than how high the temperature gets – its unique geological features are the ones that draw visitors to visit despite the cost, the many hours of off road driving, and barebones accommodation.
A trip to the Danakil Depression is without a doubt, the absolute highlight of Ethiopia. Also, it is a place where the prehistoric sites are located.
Mekelle is the ideal and easy place to access the Danakil. Our departure tours starts from Mekelle around 9AM. If you are travelling to and from Addis our tours are arranged so that you are able to leave Addis on the morning flight to arrive in Mekele, where you will be met at the airport by one of our guides and you can join the group that will leave for the Danakil that morning.
You return to Mekele after your Danakil trip at around 5pm. This gives you time to catch the flight back to Addis if you wished to return that night.
