Eritrea Images

Eritrea railway: This file is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported licenseAlthough once regarded as a good tourist destination, today very few outsiders get to see images of Eritrea as the country is considered somewhat dangerous given the ongoing conflict with its neighbour and former annexor Ethiopia. It is also considered to be one of the most secretive countries in Africa, having been described as the North Korea of Africa. This video is therefore one of the rare opportunities to see images of Eritrea, its land, its wildlife and its people and where they live.

Eritrea itself is bordered by the Red Sea to the east, to the west and north-west by Sudan, to the south by Ethiopia, and to the south-east by Djibouti. Eritrea is mainly located in hilly regions surrounded by the craggy Emba Soira mountains and the country is home to the arid Danakil Depression, however in the centre of the country there is a fertile plateau.

Eritrea TopographyEritrea has four main rivers; the Anseba, Gash, Barka and Tekeze and has deposits of gold, zinc and copper underground together with the possibility of oil and natural gas. Frequently plagued by locust swarms and droughts that affect all countries in and around the Horn of Africa, Eritrea has less than 5% of arable land and one historically active volcano, Dubbi.

For those who do travel to Eritrea there are many places worth a look, from the century old Italian built Eritrean Railway (above) that runs from Asmara (situated at 7,874 feet ~ the peak of Ben Nevis is just 4409 feet above sea level by comparison) to the city port of Massawa, prehistoric cave paintings in Qo Haito, Himbirti and Hashimile, the ruins of the ancient Adulite empire in Qo Haito and Metera and, of course, the coral reefs around 350 islands off the Red Sea coast including the Dahlak Archipelago. The video above provides images of Eritrea, its people, landscape and wildlife and provides a useful insight into Eritrea.
