As the oldest independent country on the continent, Ethiopia is rapidly emerging as one of Africa's most historic and fascinating destinations. 

From the ancient Christian towns of the north, where you will find the rock churches of Lalibela, the 1,700 year old monolithic stelae at Axum and medieval Castles of Gondar, across breathtaking Simien Mountains where you will find the Gelada baboons and Walia ibex, through the Great Rift Valley and down to the wildlife of the Bale Mountains, where you will find the Ethiopian wolves and the many tribes of the South Omo, Ethiopia will entrance you.

Ethiopia has a stable temperature range, typical of its position close to the equator. However, whilst seasonal variety is a rarity, the Ethiopian climate does alter according to altitude. For example, the lowlands are hot and arid whereas the plateau can be cool and damp.

The rains are triggered by the southwest monsoon, which affects parts of the country from June to September, namely the plateau and the mountain slopes exposed to the south-west. South East Ethiopia has two rainy periods from March to May and October to November, however, these are much less intense and sometimes don’t occur at all, initiating droughts.

In summary, it is advisable to visit Ethiopia from November to February as this is the driest and coolest time of the year.
