Harar

Harar

Arthur Rimbaud, who, romantically enough, was involved in firearms trade during the last years of his life in firearms trade in the region of the Red Sea has chosen the city of Harar as a place of his life, and now a museum is established in his house. Harar is also widely regarded as the fourth holiest city of Islam and has 82 mosques, three of which date far back to the X century. Amongst travelers, this city is known for its fortress and packs of hyenas, which patrol city alleys at night. But most of all, this city is famous for the tradition to feed spotted hyenas porridge one night of the year, today this custom is the most attractive tourist night show, during which everyone can feed a cute hyena. The minimum duration of this part of the trip: 1 day.
