You may be wondering about Ethiopia safety – is it safe to travel to Ethiopia?
Generally, the country is a safe and fascinating place to visit, with a fairly low crime rate and friendly locals.
However, due to conflict in many surrounding regions, and recent terrorist attacks, all travellers should take care when travelling in Ethiopia.
Is it Safe to Travel in Ethiopia?
Areas near the Somalia border, including the Fik, Degehabur, Gode, Korahe and Warder zones should be avoided at all costs as fighting can break out in these areas at any time and banditry is also common in these areas.
The Eritrea border is currently closed, and all travel to surrounding areas of this part of the country should be avoided.
Roads and areas within 50km of the Sudan and Kenya borders are also unsafe and should be avoided where possible. Fighting and banditry is common in these areas, so if you have to travel through these parts be extra cautious.
Recent terrorist attacks have occurred, mostly near transport hubs or petrol stations. Be very alert at all times, and avoid street demonstrations or large crowds.
