Best things to do and see in Ethiopia

Ethiopia has some fascinating religious festivals throughout the year and is also home to popular tourist events, like the Great Ethiopian Run. It usually takes place in November and attracts runners from around the world. If you’re looking for Ethiopia flights deals to travel to the Run, make sure you book tickets well in advance. Flights to Ethiopia are likely to be extremely busy around this time. If you are interested in Ethiopian culture and religion, celebrations like Timket and the Enkukatash Ethiopian New Year Festival are great times to visit. Ethiopian New Year takes place in September, and the festival involves street processions and candlelit vigils, with dancing performances and singing from the local children. Meanwhile, Timket is held annually in January and is a vibrant celebration that marks John’s the Baptist’s baptism in the Jordan River. During the festival, villages and towns create models of the Ark of the Covenant, which are paraded through the streets. The festival is primarily a Christian celebration but is still a beautiful example of Ethiopian culture and a unique sight for visitors of any faith.

Ethiopian cuisine is healthy and delicious. One of the most foundational ingredients in Ethiopian cooking is Injera, a type of flatbread made from Teff flour. Teff grain is gluten-free and is turned into a fermented paste before being used to make Injera. Injera is often served with vegetarian sauces and curries, as many Ethiopian recipes are meat-free. One popular dish in southern Ethiopia is a starch-based dish called Kocho. This is a fermented flatbread similar to Injera, except that it is made with banana leaves rather than Teff flour. Kocho is usually served with roasted greens, known as Kifto, for a filling and nutritious meal. Restaurants in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, also serve popular traditional meat dishes, such as Tibs or Tere Siga. Tibs refers to sliced meat, usually beef or lamb, fried in butter with garlic and onion. Meanwhile, Tere Siga dishes usually consist of raw beef cut into cubes and served alongside Injera and with a variety of spicy condiments on the side.

Ethiopia has some fascinating cultural attractions and natural beauty spots that visitors to the country will love. If you want a real slice of authentic Ethiopian culture, the Addis Mercato street market in Addis Ababa is one great place to visit. The street market hosts hundreds of stalls and is a brilliant place to see local artisan products and taste Ethiopian cuisine. If you book Ethiopia flight deals to Addis Ababa, you will also find many museums to keep you entertained. Visitors to the city can explore the National Museum of Ethiopia, the Red Terror Martyrs Memorial Museum, and the Holy Trinity Cathedral, famous for its beautiful stained-glass windows. Nature lovers will also enjoy visiting Menagesha Suba Forest Park, which has walking trails through the Ethiopian landscape and is a great place to see the local wildlife. Meanwhile, visitors in the Lalibela Amhara Region can visit the amazing ruins at the Rock-Hewn Churches of Lalibela with their underground tunnels connected to these ancient religious sites.

UK citizens visiting Ethiopia must have both a valid passport and the correct visa documents. Before you travel to Ethiopia, you should apply for either an e-Visa online or through the Ethiopian Embassy. You will be required to show all your visa documents before you board your flight to Ethiopia and again when you arrive.
