Trip Planning FAQs

Should I receive vaccines when planning my Ethiopia tours?
Yes, some vaccinations are required or highly recommended for most travelers. Due to the outbreak of yellow fever in the Southern Nations and Nationalities People's Region (SNNPR) of Ethiopia, it is mandatory for international tourists to receive vaccines against yellow fever at least 10 days before the travel date. Medical conditions in Ethiopia are relatively backward, therefore we suggest you visit a doctor one month before your Ethiopia tours to get advice or medicines you may need.
How to get to Ethiopia by flight?
As a Star Alliance member, Ethiopian Airline is also a good choice in Africa. There are more than 40 airports in the country, of which Addis Ababa, Dire Dawa and Bahir Dar are international airports. The Addis Ababa Bole International Airport (ADD) is one of the best airports in Africa, providing ground handling services to many airlines.
What is the official language in Ethiopia?
Amharic is the official language in Ethiopia, while, English is also the most widely spoken foreign language there.
Is the tap water safe to drink?
