The most comprehensive travel guide to Africa      

Going by Tuk Tuk

An auto rickshaw or three-wheeler (tuk-tuk, trishaw, rickshaw, bajaj, rick, tricycle or mototaxi) is another way to get around towns and nearby locations where even a car might not be able to enter. Tuk Tuks is a usually three-wheeled cabin cycle for private use and as a vehicle for hire they are a cheap way to get around in many African towns and cities.

Tuk tuk or Bajad

Tuk Tuks (in Ethiopia most often called Bajad) swarms the street in Hawassa and is a relatively cheap means of transportation as it is often shared by several people going in the same direction

Auto rickshaws have recently become an essential form of urban transport in many developing countries as it is basically a motorized version of the traditional pulled rickshaw or cycle rickshaw. When going on longer journeys taking a local bus is definately an option to consider as they are cheap and you will meet and interact with local people on the way, thus learning more about the culture.
