Southern Ethiopia

Getting there & away

Ethiopian Airlines (www.flyethiopian.com) connects Addis Ababa with Arba Minch and Jinka.

Overland, the only real options to enter southern Ethiopia are from the north via Addis Ababa and from the south via Kenya at Moyale. Daily buses and minibuses serve both routes. If you have your own vehicle, it’s also possible to reach Arba Minch from Jimma in western Ethiopia via an upgraded road between Jimma and Sodo. The journey’s supposed to take five to six hours in dry season.
