Top Bucket List Experiences in Ethiopia
1. Visit the picturesque Awash National Park
Set in the dry acacia savanna of the Rift Valley, this picturesque national park is roughly 200 kilometers from Addis Ababa. The Awash River formed a stunning gorge, 150 m deep, which serves as the southern boundary of the park and features a huge waterfall. Lake Beseka and the stunning blue pools fed by the nearby Filwoha Hot Springs are two more attractions. The beauty and birds in Awash are more popular draws than the game viewing, despite the fact that 80 mammal species have been reported there. With over 450 different species, Awash National Park is widely considered to be one of the best places in Ethiopia to go bird watching with our Ethiopia Tour Packages.
2. Visit the lake city of Ethiopia, Bahir Dar
Bahir Dar, one of Ethiopia's most beautiful cities, is known for its broad palm-lined boulevards and picturesque setting on a lake. Its location on Lake Tana's southern shore makes it a convenient home base for seeing the lake and other attractions like the Blue Nile Falls. The palm-lined avenues and lakeside panoramas have made this once peaceful fishing community popular among tourists in recent years. The hydroelectric dam constructed at neighbouring Tis Abay has helped transform the town into a key industrial center with convenient services for visitors in their Ethiopia Tour.
3. Know the history of the country by Visiting Harar
One of the most spectacular historical sites in Ethiopia, Harar is a vivid reflection of the country's rich and varied past. Established in the late 1st millennium BC, this city in eastern Ethiopia has grown to become an Islamic stronghold. Since its founding, Harar has been ruled by 72 different Imams, each of whom contributed to the development of the city's distinctive customs. This historic city, founded in the 1540s, is one of the most important Muslim pilgrimage destinations and is home to 90 mosques and many other interesting attractions. One of the town's oldest customs is now one of its most popular tourist draws, every day, a local citizen is chosen at random to leave the city walls and call the local Hyenas, who he then feeds by hand. You can be one of those if you choose our incredible Ethiopia Packages.
4. Explore the Bale Mountains in search of an Ethiopian Wolf
Ethiopia's abundant wildlife, including chances to get "up close and personal" with endangered species, should be recognized on any list of things to do in Ethiopia.
The Sanetti Plateau in Bale Mountains National Park is the greatest place to witness one of the around 500 remaining wild Ethiopian wolves. Other endangered animals found there include black-maned lions, honey badgers and several kinds of monkeys. Keep an eye out for monkeys with bleeding hearts. The trip with Dook International takes you past the Rift Valley's beautiful lakes, true African communities filled with the hum of Tuk-Tuks and verdant bamboo groves.

5. Relax on a boat ride on Lake Tana
Visiting historic monasteries to practice meditation is a must if you have this on your list of things to do in your lifetime with our Ethiopia Tour Packages. Tana, Ethiopia's largest lake, is the beginning of the Blue Nile, the country's most important river. It is possible to visit 20 monasteries, some as old as the 1300s, all within the space of a single boat ride on the lake. The Ura Kidane Mihret Monastery is one of the most visited. You'll find it on the verdant Zege Peninsula and the splendor of its furnishings will leave an indelible impression.
