Ethiopia is the second largest African country after Nigeria, and can be found in the Horn of Africa to the east of the continent. It is one of the world’s first official Christian nations, and one of the oldest countries in the world generally. This gives it a fascinating and lengthy history, evident in the churches, architecture and monuments found throughout the country. One of the most popular tourist activities in Ethiopia is a tribal safari, which will take you into the rural areas of Ethiopia where you can meet the tribespeople.
If you enjoy outdoor activities, there are opportunities for white water rafting on the Omo River or trekking in some of the national parks. Volunteering holidays are another popular option, especially for younger travellers, where you can participate in a number of community projects, from teaching English to children and helping out in healthcare establishments. Ethiopian food is delicious, so make sure you take full advantage of the delicacies on offer during your stay.
