What is good to know if travelling to Ethiopia?

  • Aksum: Enter Aksum – a place where time stands still. The modest little town of Aksum has a dusty, rural feel, and although at first sight it may seem unremarkable, you’ll soon learn the history of its brimming civilization. Book flights to Ethiopia to walk among ruins of palaces, discover underground tombs, and read ancient inscriptions carved deep into the rock’s surface. Once filled with vibrancy and life, and called the Aksumite Kingdom the land holds quite a bit of legends, myths, and fables. Most Ethiopians believe that the Ark of the Covenant rests there.
  • Lalibela: For religious enthusiasts booking flights to Ethiopia, head to Lalibela, an area filled with rock-built churches and sacred religious architecture. Now somewhat isolated, Ethiopian people primarily use the location as a center of religious pilgrimage and meditation. Eleven churches, all cut from bedrock and built in the same century, come in all shapes, sizes and degrees of degradation. Priests are known to “guard” the churches with crosses, Bibles, and manuscripts in order to protect the sight from harm, but locals are still permitted to wander and experience the place in its entire sacred splendor.
  • Simien Mountains National Park: Don’t be surprised if a vulture flies above your head as you happen to stroll through Simien Mountains National Park, it’s just one of the many wildlife breeds you’ll see in the natural environment. For those planning Ethiopia flights to experience awesome trekking opportunities and unbeatable views, this landscape should be the first stop on your list. Walia ibex, gelada baboons, and Ethiopian wolves all exist in the habitat, among bird species like the thick billed raven and the black headed siskin. Arrange for a guide to take you around on mules, and sleep in tents among the many species you’ll encounter during the day.
  • Addis Ababa: There’s so much to see at Addis Ababa, where the huge city will leave your head spinning with exciting experiences and new sights, sounds, and smells. , Make sure to see the National Museum, which holds photos, records, and depictions of the country’s past. Along the same lines, African Hall is a highlight for political junkies who want to see the seat of the UN Economic Commission for Africa, and the Trinity Church (the largest in the country) is a great sight for any religious enthusiast. It’s easy to get lost in Mercacto, which is the largest outdoor market in Africa, but if you take along a guide, you won’t leave disappointed – or empty handed.
