Top Descriptions

Even though we stayed here three times, we barely saw much of Addis Ababa at all. And that might be how you’ll treat it too. There’s no doubt that this is the capital. It’s certainly grand and smoggy enough for that, and the taxi drivers levy their charges accordingly. But will you want to linger here long? It depends what you’re into. If you’re after history and culture, you’d probably best quickly head up north, but for wining and dining there’s nowhere better in the country. This is also a good place to stock on supplies before heading further afield as there are actually something approaching supermarkets here. The city’s also gained some notoriety for its party scene, especially among expatriates visiting from the Arabian Peninsula. No matter what you’re into, you’ll end up here whether you like it or not as it’s smack bang in the middle of every corner of the country. Enjoy it for what it is, use it for what it is, and move on when you’re ready – which may just be pretty quick! – Daniel

Top Tips

Whether you like big cities or not, it’s very difficult to avoid Addis Ababa when travelling as all roads seem to lead to and from here.
Addis Ababa provides more access to facilities and amenities than anywhere else in the country. Use the capital to stock up as elsewhere in can be just a little lacking!
The weather is quite changeable in the capital – and when it rains heavily here, you can expect some pretty serious flash flooding. Come prepared.
