Ethiopia is not only the second most populated country in Africa, but the oldest independent country on the African continent. Located on the horn of Africa, Ethiopia has much to offer visitors with its beautiful wildlife, and historical treasures. Historians and scientists believe that Ethiopia was home to the beginning of mankind. It’s a hive of ancient culture with archaeological finds dating back more than 3 million years! Some locals still use the ancient Ge’ez script, which is also known as Ethiopic, and is one of the oldest alphabets still in use.
