Getting there & around


Addis Ababa is the only international airport in Ethiopia, but domestic flights with Ethiopian Airlines connect most of the regions and bigger cities reliably several times daily. Remote destinations might have only some flights per week. Here flight schedules might also change on short notice. For flights to smaller airstrips, charter flights are available.

SimienEcoTours books your domestic flights for your package tour with us and we can give assistance on international flight bookings as well.

Ground transportation

Traveling by road allows visitors to experience Ethiopia's wonderful scenery. Road conditions are good for all the destinations of major importance. More and more roads are being asphalted and there is a good network of well accessible roads nowadays to remote destinations. Especially in the South, it is still necessary to travel in 4WD vehicles. A newly electrified railway line to the Eastern city of Dire Dawa and the capital of neighboring Djibouti runs trains every other day.

All SimienEcoTours trips provide transportation and transfers in our reliable vehicles. Self-drive tours are not recommended in Ethiopia and our rental cars come with your own experienced driver.
