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.

Destination Information for Ethiopia

The natural landscape of the country differs dramatically with arid desert vista but is also home to beautiful mountains, lakes and waterfalls. Tourists should take a trip to the volcanic lake in the Danakil Depression as it is believed to be the hottest and most inhospitable place on earth! Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s capital city, is the most popular starting point for most tourists. Organised tours are available where you can experience some of the spectacular views including castles, hidden tombs and ancient religious sites.

There is plenty of things to do whilst in Addis Ababa and you will find the National Museum and the Ethnological Museum. If you are looking to experience Ethiopia’s stunning wildlife, head to the Bale Mountains National Park, which has incredible views and a dense concentration of wildlife. If you love coffee then you will love Ethiopia – it’s here that the humble coffee bean was first discovered!
