Welcome to Ethiopia!
Ethiopia occupies 1.1 million sq km (450,000 sq miles), and is situated in the Horn of Africa between 3 and 15 degrees North and 33 and 48 degrees East, bordered by Djibouti, Eritrea, Sudan, Kenya and Somalia. The country is divided into 9 Regional states and two City Administrations. The capital city, Addis Ababa, is home to the African Union Commission (AU), the United Nation Conference Center and the Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA).
Ethiopia is truly a land of contrasts and extremes - a land of remote and wild places. Some of the highest and most stunning places on the African continent are found here, including the jaggedly carved Simien Mountains, one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites - and some of the lowest, such as the hot but fascinating Danakil Depression, with its sulphur fumaroles and lunar-like landscape.
