Tourist Information

Ethiopian tourist offices are not especially useful and tend only to provide very general advice; there are offices in:

Addis Ababa

Gonder

Mekele

Konso

Lalibela

Gambela

Nekemte

Wukro

For more detailed information, contact tour operators in Addis Ababa, and local guide associations and the traveller grapevine for travel outside the capital.

The UK-based Anglo-Ethiopian Society (www.anglo-ethiopian.org) is also a good source of information before you travel. An active, nonpolitical organisation, it aims ‘to foster a knowledge and understanding of Ethiopia and its people’. The society publishes a tri-annual Newsfile, holds regular gatherings (including talks on Ethiopia) and has a well-stocked library open to members. Annual membership is from UK£15.
