Solo travel

Can anyone recommend a travel escort while in Ethiopia? I volunteer at an Orphanage in the town of Guder, near the town of Ambo. I usually travel with a group but am considering going without the group in the future. I am in search of a person with whom would drive me from and to Addis to Ambo upon my arrival and departure. I would also be interested in having that person stay in Ambo and drive me to and from the hotel in Ambo to the orphanage in Guder. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi

Will send you suggestions re Addis to Ambo drive. You could just get someone to deliver you to Asco bus station for Ambo bus??

From your post I assume you have been a few times before so have a little bit of Amharic.

Do you stay in Ambo on your trips..

Can't someone at the Orphanage recommend a trustworthy Bajaj taxi driver to take you to Hyderabad each day??

I prefer to have someone pick me up from the airport and stay with me through out the trip. We have arranged local transportation in the past with mixed results. I’m not worried if I become stranded with a group but if I become standard alone I would feel uncomfortable.
