A small country on the east coast of Africa, located just east of South Sudan, Ethiopia was once home to ancient civilizations. Sites such as Aksum, which contains the ruins of an ancient city, and Lalibela, which is home to some of the earliest known stone-cut Christian churches, make the country of great interest to archeologists. Visitors to Ethiopia also come to see native wildlife at Simien Mountains National Park, located in the northern part of the country. The National Museum of Ethiopia, located in Addis Ababa, is home to ancient artifacts and contemporary work by Ethiopian artists. Most famously, the museum also houses the remains of Lucy, an ancient hominid discovered by Donald Johanson, an American paleoanthropologist, in 1974.
The official language of Ethiopia is Amharic, but English is commonly spoken throughout the country. Flights to Ethiopia can be booked via Addis Ababa Bole International Airport (ADD).
