Ethiopia is a beautiful country that is home to a wide variety of landscapes, many different people and cultures, and is one of the most historically rich places you can visit. To top it all off, travel, food and souvenirs here aren’t too expensive, making this destination a no brainer. Ethiopia is located in the region commonly referred to as the Horn of Africa. It is a landlocked country, meaning it does not have direct access to the ocean, and it borders Eritrea to the north, Djibouti to the northeast, Somalia to the east, Kenya to the south, South Sudan to the west and Sudan to the northwest. With over 110 million people, this country has the title of most populous landlocked country in the world. It is also the country with the second largest population in Africa, after Nigeria. The capital city and entry airport to most western travelers is Addis Ababa. This chaotic city, filled with history, lies just a few kilometers west of the East African Rift that splits the country into the Nubian and Somali tectonic plates. Ethiopia’s natural beauty and incredible history will make travelers very happy they chose to spend time in this country. It has more UNESCO sites than any other African country, with one of the most world renowned being the Rock Hewn Churches of Lalibela. Other Ethiopian UNESCO sites include Fasil Ghebbi Castle in Gondar, the Simien Mountains and Aksum. Ethiopia is home to an extensive array of microclimates and ecosystems. It has highlands, elevated mountain ranges, high volcanic plateaus and a desert depression. All of this makes for a very photo friendly trip. Within the Simien Mountains, Jinbar Waterfall stands out as a place that tourists flock to for how photogenic the place is. Also, in the region of Gheralta visitors will witness the Tigray Churches, which are filled with history, culture, and which wouldn’t be out of place on the set of an American western film. Finally, in Danakil visitors will come face to face with the Mars like landscape of the Erta Ale Volcano and with the vivid colors of Dallol. Ethiopia’s official language is Amharic and it even has its own alphabet. Though in the main cities and tourism related industries, most people can speak some English. One interesting aspect of Ethiopian culture is that they have a different calendar to the rest of the world. Their calendar is known as the Ge’ez calendar and it is seven years behind the Gregorian calendar, which we all are used to. According to the Ge’ez calendar, there are 13 months in a year, of which only 12 have 30 days. The thirteenth month always has either five or six days, depending on if it is a leap year. Within Ethiopian cities, like Addis Ababa, the best way to get around is by rickshaw or tuk tuk. The local name for these buggies is Bajaj. When asking locals for help finding where they wait for customers, make sure to reference them by their local name. Prices for rides are not metered, so make sure to agree on a price before getting in. Remember, locals will usually give an inflated price first, so feel free to haggle. Similar to some destinations in the Mediterranean, many tourist attraction in Ethiopia will actually close for an hour during lunchtime. The best advice for this time of day is to just go with it and find a nice place to enjoy the delicious local cuisine and rest your feet while you wait for the museum or attraction to reopen for the afternoon session. The main staple of Ethiopian diet is called injera. It is a spongey, sour and thin bread made of Teff flour and it is typically layered with a number of dishes. The way to eat it is with your hands and to use the injera to scoop up the food. Ethiopian cuisine is usually provided without cutlery, so make sure to explicitly ask for a fork if you can’t do without.
