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!

Ethiopia Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Ethiopia.
Ethiopia is a mysterious, mountainous land in the Horn Of Africa and birthplace of Early Christianity. A country of rock churches in the north and a large variety of tribes along the Rift Valley in the south and the oldest civilised region in Africa with more than twenty five centuries of documented history. Addis Abeba is the capital of Ethiopia and within its centre is the lavishly furnished Menbere Selassie Church, final place of rest of Ethiopia’s last royal family. It contains the Empress Menen, two princes and Emperor Haile Selassie who, shortly after removal from power, died due to reasons that are in the main controversial. On many of its thirty seven islands, Lake Tana in Northern Ethiopia is well known for its ancient churches and monasteries. Dega Stefanos is located in the centre of the lake and contains one of the country’s most important monasteries. On the summit, framed by walls and hidden under great trees, is the Holy Stefanos Monastery and within a small sanctuary various mummies are preserved within glazed wooden coffins and the remains of five emperors of various dynasties lie at rest. Awash is a settlement on the edge of the nature park of the same name, inhabited by the Afar, a proud and independent tribe. On market day, people from the surrounding area meet here. For the Afar, life is hard and only the strong survive. Corn, tobacco, dates and cotton are the main trading products of this region. Dromedaries, sheep and goats are bred, and pastureland is often the subject of heated disputes. A journey through Ethiopia is also a journey through time itself. A land of rich traditions, religions and myths. A country of legends and contrast that possesses one of the most colourful histories on the African continent.

Ethiopian Food - The ONE DISH You Have To Eat in ETHIOPIA!

►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week:
►T-shirts and caps available now:

One of my main missions when I visited Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, was to learn about how to cook what is for sure one of the most special of all Ethiopian foods: doro wat (ዶሮ ወጥ). Of course, they do serve it at restaurants in Addis Ababa, but there’s nothing like seeing the entire process of a dish, especially a stew like doro wat from start to finish, beginning with a chicken, and finishing by eating. It’s a very complicated dish to make, and it takes utmost care and time. I want to say a huge thank you to Belaneh and his family for graciously inviting us to their home and for cooking the most amazing doro wat - or even Ethiopian food meal - ever.

What is doro wat (ዶሮ ወጥ)? Doro means chicken and wat means stew - so it’s an Ethiopian chicken stew. It’s a very special dish to eat in Ethiopia, not an everyday food because it takes so much time to prepare properly. As many Ethiopians told me, it’s a dish they often eat when family comes together, and during special holidays and religious days.

I would go as far as saying Doro Wat is one of the best dishes in the world. The complexity yet harmony of spices, the richness, the contrast of taste when paired with injera - your taste buds will be blown off your tongue! Thank you to Bela and his incredible family, they took no shortcuts on making doro wat, and beyond the delicious food, it was so extremely special to get to know them and hang out with them.

We first went to the fresh wet market in Addis Ababa to buy a chicken, the live chicken. We then gathered a few more ingredients, including the chopped red onions, which is the main component of doro wat sauce, and went back to Bela’s home. Butchering a chicken in Ethiopian, due to some of the Ethiopian Orthodox traditions, needs to be butchered in a certain way, and washed and cleaned many times. It was by far the most cleansed chicken I’ve ever seen or eaten. The onions simmered for a few hours before we started adding in the berbere blend spice and finally the chicken went in to brew with the amazing spices.

To eat Ethiopian food, you first typically build a plate or platter of injera, and then scoop the food onto the injera. We all shared a platter and scooped on the beautiful doro wat. It was unbelievably delicious, so rich and packed with spice.

Again, thank you to Bela and his wife (and baby) for cooking us one of the most special meals you can eat in Ethiopia.

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!

Ethiopian Capital City Addis Ababa Part 69

Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy!

Addis Ababa:
Addis Ababa sometimes spelled Addis Abeba (the spelling used by the official Ethiopian Mapping Authority), is the capital city of Ethiopia. Founded in 1886, it is the largest city in Ethiopia, with a population of 3,384,569 according to the 2007 population census with annual growth rate of 3.8%. This number has been increased from the originally published 2,738,248 figure and appears to be still largely underestimated.As a chartered city (ras gez astedader), Addis Ababa has the status of both a city and a state. It is where the African Union and its predecessor the OAU are based. It also hosts the headquarters of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and numerous other continental and international organizations. Addis Ababa is therefore often referred to as the political capital of Africa due to its historical, diplomatic and political significance for the continent.
The city is populated by people from different regions of Ethiopia – the country has as many as 80 nationalities speaking 80 languages and belonging to a wide variety of religious communities. It is home to Addis Ababa University. The Federation of African Societies of Chemistry (FASC) and Horn of Africa Press Institute (HAPI) are also headquartered in Addis Ababa.
Overview:Addis Ababa lies at an altitude of 7,546 feet (2,300 metres) and is a grassland biome, located at 9°1′48″N 38°44′24″ECoordinates: 9°1′48″N 38°44′24″E. The city lies at the foot of Mount Entoto and forms part of the watershed for the Awash. From its lowest point, around Bole International Airport, at 2,326 metres (7,631 ft) above sea level in the southern periphery, the city rises to over 3,000 metres (9,800 ft) in the Entoto Mountains to the north.
Based on the 2007 census conducted by the Ethiopian national statistics authorities the population of Addis Ababa is 3,384,569 million; all of the population are urban inhabitants. For the capital city 662,728 households were counted living in 628,984 housing units, which results in an average of 5.3 persons to a household. Although all Ethiopian ethnic groups are represented in Addis Ababa due to its position as capital of the country, the largest groups include the Amhara (47.04%), Oromo (19.51%), Gurage (16.34%), Tigray (6.18%), Silt'e (2.94%), and Gamo (1.68%). Languages spoken include Amharic (71.0%), Oromiffa (10.7%), Gurage (8.37%), Tigrinya (3.60%), Silt'e (1.82%) and Gamo (1.03%). The religion with the most believers in Addis Ababa is Ethiopian Orthodox with 74.7% of the population, while 16.2% are Muslim, 7.77% Protestant, and 0.48% Catholic.
In the previous census, conducted in 1994, the city's population was reported to be 2,112,737, of whom 1,023,452 were men and 1,089,285 were women. At that time not all of the population were urban inhabitants; only 2,084,588 or 98.7% were. For the entire administrative council there were 404,783 households in 376,568 housing units with an average of 5.2 persons per household. The major ethnic groups included the Amhara (48.3%), Oromo (19.2%), Gurage (13.5%; 2.3% Sebat Bet, and 0.8% Sodo), Tigray 7.64%, Silt'e 3.98%, and foreigners from Eritrea 1.33%. Languages spoken included Amharic (72.6%), Oromiffa (10.0%), Gurage (6.54%), Tigrinya (5.41%), and Silt'e 2.29%. In 1994 the predominant religion was also Ethiopian Orthodox with 82.0% of the population, while 12.7% were Muslim, 3.87% Protestant, and 0.78% Catholic.
According to the 2007 national census, 98.64% of the housing units of Addis Ababa had access to safe drinking water, while 14.9% had flush toilets, 70.7% pit toilets (both ventilated and unventilated), and 14.3% had no toilet facilities. Values for other reported common indicators of the standard of living for Addis Ababa as of 2005 include the following: 0.1% of the inhabitants fall into the lowest wealth quintile; adult literacy for men is 93.6% and for women 79.95%, the highest in the nation for both sexes; and the civic infant mortality rate is 45 infant deaths per 1,000 live births, which is less than the nationwide average of 77; at least half of these deaths occurred in the infants’ first month of life.Wikipedia

The Ultimate ETHIOPIAN FOOD TOUR - Street Food and Restaurants in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia!

Thank you to Go Addis Tours ( for taking me on this amazing ultimate food and market tour of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Ethiopia is one of my favorite countries in the world for food and travel, and this was my second time to visit, and I was eager to explore and eat as much as possible.

We started early, 5 am in the morning and Go Addis Tours picked me up to start at the wholesale market. Even though the city is still sleeping, Addis Mercato is buzzing from 3 am when trucks full of produce from all over Ethiopia, sell them at the market in Addis Ababa. You’ll find all the ingredients, and massive amounts, that you need to cooking Ethiopian food. It was a good warm up, to get to know some of the ingredients, before starting the day eating Ethiopian food.

We had coffee, and breakfast, both of which were excellent. Later after visiting another market, Dessie took me to his neighborhood to eat shiro wat, one of the greatest of all Ethiopian foods, a thick and rich chickpea stew. I’ve had shiro wat many times before, but never have I seen it fully prepared right in front of me. The shiro was incredibly good, piled onto a bed of injera, and we also ordered fir fir, a mashup of injera, simmered with tomato sauce and berbere.

Next we headed to a fish restaurant in Addis Ababa. Ethiopia is landlocked, so all fish is freshwater. We ordered fried fish, and asa lebleb, a mixture of fish sauteed with spices and herbs. Both were excellent, but the asa lebleb was the highlight because it was so flavorful.

Next Ethiopian food meal we went to one of the longtime classic restaurants to eat one of the best platters of beyaynetu in Addis Ababa. Beyaynetu is a mix of vegetarian dishes. It was again, a delicious meal, I especially love the tomato salad there.

For our final meal of the day, and to finish off this extreme Ethiopian food tour, we went to one of the most well known and best quality meat restaurants in Addis Ababa to eat tere siga - raw meat. You are served a variety of chunks of raw beef, delicately sliced. Then you slice it into bite sized pieces on your own, wrap in injera, and dip into chili sauce before taking a bite. It’s awesome. The fried meat version is also very good.

This was an amazing day, and an amazing Ethiopian food tour in Addis Ababa. Thank you Go Addis Tours!
