    • Five hour stop over in Addis Abeba

      Addis Ababa Feb 23, 2015 at 10:07 AM

      On our way home from the Seychelles to Sweden we are having a 5 hours transit Monday 2/3 from 7.40 p.m. to 00.40 a.m. in Addis Abeba. Is it even worth considering leaving the airport and take a taxi to town? For seeing a sight or two at night and a stroll in the city, maybe a quick meal. If yes; where should we go? We like architecture, and would like to feel the city's pulse. Strolling around outside with our cameras is prefered.

      We are both females and one is holding a Norwegian passport, the other one a Swedish passport, so we can get visas on arrival at the airport. Is the visa on arrival service slow?

      Please notice the question regards the evening/night, so going to the nation museum etc is not an option.

      Ebola in Africa

      Ethiopia Aug 18, 2014 at 9:14 AM


      We will travel to Ethiopia at middle September.
      Anybody could give opinion about Ebola outbreak in West Africa?
      We understand that Ebola attacks West Africa and no cases so far in Ethiopia.
      However, it is safe to travel in Ethiopia despite the ebola outbreak?
      Should we cancel our trip to Ethiopia ?

      Should we also have yellow fever vaccine before entering Ethiopia?

      Thank you,

      We are going to be spending a few days and will have a chance to poke around Addis Ababa for a few days before we head out to explore other parts of Ethiopia.

      As avid photographers, we are looking for interesting places for street photography as well as shooting cityscapes. The mercato looks to be a great place to see and photograph people. Any other suggestions and general tips would be appreciated.

    • Immunization:

      Addis Ababa Oct 17, 2013 at 10:18 AM

      I received 2 days confirmation notice to go to Ethiopia (Addis Ababa) on business trip. I am taking the place of a someone who could not go. My stay is only 3 days. I leave in 2 days, should I make a rush appointment for immunization or does the short time there reduces my chance? . I read that immunization shots should be done 2-6 weeks before the trip. So wouldn't it be ineffective any way if I do? Please advise. Thank you
      FYI- I will be a major hotel, and will only eat the food provided there and at the business event.
