Choosing between Ethiopia or Togo-Ghana for backpacking trip!

Jump to last reply

Hi there!
I'm considering to travel for a month to Africa during this winter, and the choise is between
1-Ethiopia or
2-Ghana-Togo
(I've been in the past to other places west, south, east of Africa).
I understand that each country is definately interesting, has distinct identity, and comparisons are difficult.
I'll try to make it in backpacking way, so, no luxuries... and hope that backpackers are welcomed there...
Costs, security and weather are key factors
Maybe you could give from your experiences some advise about choosing one of these two destinations?
Hoping it is possible to have an enjoyable trip despite travelling in low cost...
Thanks for helping me to make some choises!!!
Happy travels!
Nikolaos
