  Ethiopia, Travel - Internal

The national carrier is EAL (Ethiopian Airlines). Most travel between major towns and sites is easily accessible by air and prices are relatively cheap by international standards. EAL has an excellent safety record and is noted for its excellent service.


Rail links are from Addis Ababa to Dire Dawa and on to Djibouti . Visitors wishing to travel by rail should be prepared for occasional delays. The railway line that links Addis Ababa with Djibouti (about 780 kilometres) is for freight and passenger traffic.


In order to fully experience the vast array of Ethiopian scenery it is a good idea to travel by road. However, visitors must be aware that due to the nature of the terrain, road conditions in Ethiopia are poor. Consequently, travel by road can be time consuming and a four-wheel drive can be an advantage. A little over 4,000 kilometres of the roads are covered, while some 19,000 kilometres remain gravel and dry-weather roads.





There are no set taxi prices. All fares are subject to negotiation, therefore it is a good idea to agree on a price before starting a journey.
