Ethiopia Travel Guide + Vlog | Addis Ababa and Awassa

What are the best things to do in Ethiopia? This travel guide slash vlog will show you everything I did during my two weeks there! From Addis Ababa to Awassa, I'll take you to two beautiful regions of the country and share some of my best travel tips.

I visited Ethiopia for work, so didn't get to do many typical touristy things like the churches in Lalibela, Danakil Depression or hiking the Simien Mountains. But my experiences were perhaps a little more local and authentic than your average guided tour, so I hope you'll take this video for what it is.

Have you ever been to Ethiopia? Did you just pass through the capital of Addis Ababa, or did you have time to go sightseeing? Let me know in a comment below, I'm so curious!

This is How Ethiopia Get Chosen As Top Destination in the World for Tourist

While civil society has been stunted in Ethiopia, economic growth has charged ahead. Between 2003 and 2013, the country averaged a growth rate of 10.8%—more than twice the regional average of 5.3%. The country’s growth has been driven not just by agriculture, but also by industrial production and the services industry—a rare example of economic diversification in Sub-Saharan Africa. The government has brokered deals with international investors led by the Chinese, and has been directing investment into productive sectors.

The IMF has classified Ethiopia as one of the five fastest growing economies in the world. Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, has been described as ‘the Dubai of Africa.’ The construction boom there is a microcosm of the country’s overall transformation.

Later this month Barack Obama will become the first sitting U.S. president to visit Ethiopia, when he travels there as part of an Africa trip that will also include Kenya.

Most Unique Humans on Earth? Inside Ethiopia's Omo Valley

I have spent the last 3 days in the Omo Valley of South Western Ethiopia. It's one of the most remote and undiscovered inhabited places in the world. You will not believe what I just experienced.

The Omo Valley is home to 10 distinct ethnic tribes, all living within the same land. Their traditions and rituals have been passed down for thousands and thousands of years, and it was a very special experience to be able to witness it first hand.

If you've been watching my videos for some time, then you know that I always try to dig deep into local cultures to observe unique lifestyles. Because meeting people and learning about how they survive is my favorite part about traveling. With that being said, I think I have just reached my climax of finding hidden cultures here in the Omo Valley, Ethiopia.

Have you ever heard of the Omo Valley, Ethiopia? Or been here before?

BEST OF ETHIOPIA TRAVEL - ADVENTURE HIGHLIGHTS! (4K)

I've moved my Courage Republic travel videos to its own channel! Please subscribe here:

I really wanted to do a compilation video of all the adventures -
dancing, climbing, putting myself out there, etc. the past year, but I thought it'd be better to break it up into segments to get something out there.

So, for this first compilation video, it's Ethiopia! Ethiopia's one of the more rugged countries I've been to in recent memory, and there aren't any tourist hotspots or hangouts. You can pretty much choose your own adventure there. It kind of reminds me of Myanmar in some ways.

So, although this video showcases a lot of beautiful places, I break it all down in individual episodes where go into things like, learning the language, culture, and sharing with people, and of course, facing my fears. So make sure you subscribe and I hope you enjoy this short!

Here are some of the places and things I saw: Abuna Yemata Guh ancient church, Tigray, Dallol, Simien Mountains, Danakil Salt Flats, Erta Ale Volcano, Gondar, Danakil Salt Mining, Lalibela, Timkat in Addis Ababa, Dallol Hot Springs, Simien Mountains Gelada Monkeys, Mek'ele, Primary School in Addis Ababa, and more!

Ethiopia by HandZaround

'Ehtiopia' is a personal project of travellers HandZaround.com funded in majority by them and created in their free time.

Read more about the film here:

'Green highlands, barren deserts, impassable lowlands, sparkling waterfalls, glistening lakes, bustling towns. We can’t describe Ethiopia with one word, unless we reach for ‘diversity’.

‘Ethiopia’ takes you on a journey off the beaten track through Northern lands of the country. It offers you a glimpse into the life of Amharic people living in the highlands, a chance to take part in important religious celebrations of Meskel, and a visit through a myriad of majestic Ethiopian landscapes, varying from the hottest desolate reds of Danakil Depression, to tremendous Blue Nile Falls, to the colourful mixture of cultures that you can find in the country’s capital, Addis Ababa.

Although the film is our personal tribute to this unique and vast country, it was impossible to include all that Ethiopia comprises of. We have yet to visit the South, East and West of Ethiopia. For more information about the places featured in the film, head to the article on our website:
handzaround.com/journal-1/ethiopia-travel-film

We are of course aware that Ethiopia consists of Muslim population, and other religions, but unfortunately we didn't have enough time and funds to represent the whole cultural, religious and natural landscape of Ethiopia.

In our description and in our understanding the word 'diverse' applies mainly to Ethiopian geography ('Green highlands, barren deserts, impassable lowlands, sparkling waterfalls, glistening lakes, bustling towns. We can’t describe Ethiopia with one word, unless we reach for ‘diversity’ '), and in our opinion Ethiopia is very diverse in that sense, especially in comparison to the countries we come from.'
