Photos of Ethiopia

Ethiopia in Pictures

By

These photos of Ethiopia highlight the tremendous wealth of attractions the country has to offer visitors. Travel to Ethiopia is becoming increasingly popular as people discover ancient religious and historical sights that rival those of Egypt (without the tour buses). The variety of languages and tribes, particularly in the Omo River Region, is enough to satisfy anyone's inner anthropologist. Adrenalin seekers can trek in the impressive Simien Mountains, or white-water raft down the Omo River. Birders can enjoy more than 800 species of birds and if you enjoy primates, the rare Gelada baboon is a true treat for the eyes.

While travel in Ethiopia is still somewhat rough; buses are bouncy and there aren't too many five star hotels -- the rewards are worth it. Find out more about traveling to Ethiopia.
