Exploring Ethiopia on A Budget with The Return of Tourism

Ethiopia offers natural beauty, fascinating history, exotic food, and fantastic world heritage sites, hence why we are excited tourism has returned here!


Being a full-service travel agency in Akron, Ohio, Unlimited Trips wants you to have as much fun as possible on your vacation. But you must be mindful of a few protocols when traveling abroad.


Travelers must submit proof of negative RT-PCR test results gotten within five days of arrival and quarantine for seven days starting from the day they arrive.


In addition to the many spectacular tourist attractions, you can explore and enjoy the country without spending too much. Here are some of the ways you can explore Ethiopia on a budget!





· Hiking Ethiopian Mountains

Hiking any of the countless mountains and hills in Ethiopia is a great way to offset the cost of some of the more expensive excursions.


In addition, Abyssinia hosts some of the most dramatic views in the entire continent that can be explored at no cost. Many of Unlimited Trips’ past clients always express how much they appreciate this.


All you need is a camera, a pair of comfortable hiking boots, and water to discover Ethiopia’s picturesque villages, lush farms, and ancient hills.



· Discover Ethiopian coffee

The only thing better than Ethiopian coffee is the ceremony surrounding it. Ethiopia is famed as the home of coffee and has some of the best beans in the world. We wager you’ll attest to this the moment you have a few sips of their coffee!


For a few birrs (Ethiopia’sunit of currency), you can enjoy the whole coffee experience from roasting it over a charcoal fire, grinding it up with mortar and pestle, and brewing it traditionally in a pot of clay. A remarkable experience that costs less than a dollar! A single dollar equals 46.15 Ethiopian birrs.



· Tour Addis Ababa

Literally translating to “beautiful flower,” the capital city of Ethiopia is one of the largest cities on the continent with lots to do and see. Unlimited Trips’ highly recommend you head to this city first.


For close to no fee at all, you can visit a host of churches, monuments, and attractive architecture that may take you weeks to see everything.


There are also countless museums scattered all over Addis Ababa that you can add to your itinerary. Some are free, while others cost a few dollars or birrs.
