    Mursi lip-plate adorned tribe

    5
    1 review

    Locate Mursi deep in tiny jungle villages living in mud huts. Girls split their bottom lip from young age to eventually insert 5 inch clay decorative plates. The same is done in earlobes. The Mursi widely believe it’s a sign of beauty. Breasts are exposed and bodies covered in subcutaneous tattoo markings like raised bumps in patterns, representing the clan. ...

    Migbaru's Ethiopian Tours

    1 review

    Addis is a large city where even locals seem to be constantly lost. Taxi cab drivers, and vendors are constantly trying to rip you off, and it is super nice to have a local on your side. Migbaru knows the major attractions around town, is super kind and great company. You can find him at the National Museum selling chewing ...

    This is a super cool place. Run by an Ethiopian couple that has lived in the states for a long time and is well traveled. They understand the beauty of the Ethiopian culture, and the styles and standards that travelers will be looking for. They have a weaving and jewelry studio right there on the property, where you can see ...

    Awassa university city

    5
    1 review

    One of the largest cities in the South, Awassa is a university city. Complete with bars, cafes and restaurants, it’s a culture shock from the rest of the region. On the banks of Lake Awassa and in the Great Rift Valley, this is a surreal metropolis in which to enjoy coffee and cake in a modern urban coffee shop, usually ...

    Fish Market

    1 review

    Compete with Marabou, Cormorants, Kites, Pelicans and crowds of people for seafood straight from Lake Awassa, at this lakeside open-air market. This is lake-to-table dining as young fishing boys return to shore, boats loaded with Tilapia. Bought there and then by lakeside eateries, it’s put straight onto a barbecue, drenched in fresh lemon and served up. University students flock here, ...

    Lake Chamo crocodile safari

    5
    1 review

    In the Main Ethiopian Rift, this small boat trip starts as an idyllic sunset ride. Minutes in, hippos carelessly splash past. But deeper in, on the banks, gigantic Nile crocodiles appear. Amongst the world’s longest and widest, they’re spectacularly impressive, sunning themselves in their hundreds, gaping jaws wide open as they regulate body temperature. The creatures, up to 17 foot ...

    Shashamene Little Jamaica

    5
    1 review

    Visiting the little-known Jamaican town of Ethiopia is like walking through the streets of Montego Bay. Emperor Haile Selassie, in fact, inspired the Rastafari movement, later welcoming its people to Ethiopia in 1948. Now there’s a 100,000+ strong community with reggae bars serving Rum, authentic Jerk chicken and, other Jamaican ‘delights’ in this neighbourhood coated red, green and yellow.

    Khat roadside market

    5
    1 review

    A flowering plant native to the Horn of Africa, Khat is an amphetamine-like substance that is commonly chewed by men, women and even children throughout the country. Heading South, roadside Khat markets are fascinating. Large bundles of the green leaves are bought and sold at market in the same way as vegetables. Widely considered as a problematic substance for the ...

    Lake Tana Cruise

    5
    1 review

    Slicing through placid still waters of a seemingly infinite lake, chug chugging by motorboat, feels remarkably pacifying. The vital lake is the source of the Blue Nile, which primarily feeds the River Nile. Be startled to see a papyrus canoe with solo fisherman, rowing hours from land. Lake Tana houses endemic fishlife, impressive roster of birdlife and hidden 16th Century ...

    Ashetan Maryam

    5
    1 review

    The hike out to Ashetan Maryam was one of my favorite experiences on our trip through northern Ethiopia. The hike is relatively short (less than 2 hours) and takes you from the center of town through a quaint village and up to a lovely monastery the offers stunning views from its 3,150 m perch. The monastery may be visited by ...

    Fasiladas' Bath

    1 review

    Lovely building set in the midst of a reflecting pool (which is empty except at festival times). Doesn't take long to see but well worth a visit. The trees and birds here are almost as much of an attraction as the sight itself.

    Entoto Maryam Church

    4
    1 review

    The church itself isn't particularly spectacular but the views of downtown Addis and the people watching here make it well worth the trip. Entoto Maryam Church is very active / alive. A nice place to see locals and maybe catch a glimpse of a traditional wedding.

    Debre Birhan Selassie Church

    1 review

    The external facade of this church is quite simple but the paintings on the inside are among the best we saw in Ethiopia. Truly stunning. The winged cherubs will immediately grab your attention but this is the one place where it really does make sense to have your guide walk you through some of the murals. Ask to see the ...

    Ark of the Covenant

    1 review

    The chest of tablets on which the Ten Commandments were written, according to the Bible, has historically travelled some distance. Now it’s widely believed to be held in the Chapel of the Tablet, adjoining the 16th C stone-built St Mary of Zion Church. No-one is allowed to see the religious relic which is kept under guard. The chapel was designed ...

    1 review

    This attractive castle and palace complex could easily be at home in medieval Europe. A nice sight that will satisfy your inner child's desire to roam through a castle relatively undisturbed (during off-peak seasons).

    Gorgeous scenery and an excellent place to see ibex, gelada and lammergeiers. The drive or hike to Chenek is 1/2 of the enjoyment. Truly stunning.

    African Jazz Village

    1 review

    Located in the Ghion Hotel and presided over by the famous Mulatu Astatke, this place is one of the top places in town to see Ethio-Jazz. The club is dimly lit and looks like it was decorated in the 70s but the music is good, and it is definitely worth a visit.
