Book a Car Rental in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Traveling to what’s commonly referred to as the “capital of Africa” requires packing layers, as Addis Ababa’s high altitude results in cooler temperatures than elsewhere in Ethiopia. The bustling city serves up unexpectedly good Italian food due to an Italian invasion in the 1930s, while the surrounding area has plenty of striking natural scenery to explore by car.

Most Worthwhile Day Trips
    • It’s pure bliss to take the verdant 200-km drive north of Addis Ababa to the Blue Nile Gorge, a dramatic bridge that straddles the river, offering spectacular views of the surrounding landscape. On the way back, you can stop at Debre Libanos, a 13th-century monastery site nestled against a waterfall-rich cliff. Rising 3,200 meters above sea level, Mount Entoto encompasses historical as well as atmospheric significance. Entoto Hill, as it’s sometimes called, offers serene hiking among the eucalyptus trees; now empty, the former palace of Emperor Menelik II sits at the summit, where travelers can catch stunning panoramic views of Addis Ababa below.

Major Highways In Addis Ababa
    • The no. 3 highway starts in Addis Ababa and goes northwest to cross the Blue Nile River by the city of Dejen; it eventually tilts passes Bahir Dar and curls up around Lake Tana to run through Gondar.Also starting in Addis Ababa and heading north, the no. 1 highway veers slightly east to pass the city of Mek’ele and makes its way past the active Erta Ale Volcano, where visitors peer over the edge of the crater to see the red-hot lake bubbling below.

Heritage of the Holy Land Tour

I loved using CheapOair to book my flight to Israel for a tour I went on. Thank you so much for helping me make my lifetime dream of going to the Holy Land come true. I loved flying with Royal Jordanian too. They were friendly and affordable. Using CheapOair was easy and affordable, I loved how I could just book my flights online and I will definitely use again for future trips. - Sarah  Sep 17, 2023
