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.
Taxi 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.
