Guide: Traveling to Ethiopia serves as the gateway to all history lessons and books documenting the history of this amazing country, and you will have the front row seat, experiencing this joyous cultural ride.

By Melissa Henderson (EBONY) |

Ethiopia is located in the ‘Horn of Africa’ along the northeast region of the continent and contains more than 70% of Africa’s mountains. Ethiopia, also known as the Cradle of Mankind, is home to the oldest humanoid on earth, the ancient Aksumite Empire, Ark of the Covenant, and countless historical museums and churches including Debre Birhan Selassie Church. Ethiopia stands at the forefront of African nations as it was the only African country to withstand European colonization during the ‘Scramble for Africa’ and is a founding member of the United Nations. Addis Ababa, which means ‘New Flower’, is often referred to as the ‘Political Capital of Africa’ as it is the headquarters for the African Union. The flourishing capital of Ethiopia offers a variety of authentic restaurants, theaters and the burial grounds of Emperor Selassie I. If touring Addis Ababa takes your breath away, just wait until you visit the countless rock-hewn churches in Lalibela and the beautiful castles of Gondar.

Ethiopia: East Africa’s New Economic Power

Ethiopia has experienced an average economic growth of 10.8% per year in the past decade and it’s expected to overtake Kenya soon to become East Africa’s economic power.

By Gwendolin Hilse (DW) |

Ethiopia’s economy is growing so rapidly it may soon replace Kenya as the largest economic power in the region. But a large number of people in the country still live in poverty and many challenges remain.

The recent inauguration of the giant Hawassa industrial park was a special moment for Ethiopia’s government. Built with Chinese help, the park has modern halls where leather and textile products will be produced for the European and American market. Located 275 km south of the capital Addis Ababa, the park is expected to turnover 1 billion dollars annually and provide employment for more than 60,000 people.

Ambitious plans

The plant in Hawassa is one of 16 industrial parks planned by Ethiopia’s government. In a push to revive the country’s economy, they are investing heavily in large infrastructure projects. In 2015, they rolled out a modern light railway in Addis Ababa – the first fully electric tram in sub-Saharan Africa. By 2020, a 5,000-kilometer rail network should connect the country with its neighbors and the port of Djibouti. To provide a regular source of electricity in a country where less than a quarter of people have access to power, the government is also constructing a vast dam on the upper reaches of the Blue Nile.

With a gross domestic product (GDP) of 800 US dollars (715 euro) per capita, Ethiopia is still one of the poorest countries in the world. Almost 6 million people depend on food aid.

But Ethiopia’s economy is booming. The country has experienced an average economic growth of 10.8 percent per year in the past decade and it’s expected to overtake Kenya soon to become East Africa’s largest economy. In 2014, consulting firm Deloitte & Touch spoke of an “economic miracle”.

The question is how sustainable this boom is in a country that has been under a state of emergency since October 2016 following protests against government policies and human rights abuses. The government has cracked down on dissent and arrested several opposition leaders.

What to Do in Addis, Ethiopia, According to Liya Kebede

Kebede’s clothing line, lemlem, is handmade in Ethiopia from natural cotton and is rooted in tradition.

The supermodel, activist, and designer of lemlem shares her picks for market shopping and coffee ceremonies in her hometown.

These days, you’ll probably find Ethiopian-born supermodel Liya Kebede on a runway in Paris, on the streets of Manhattan, or on a shoot in St. Bart’s. But Kebede grew up in Addis Ababa, where she now produces lemlem, her line of airy cotton dresses, scarves, and coverups in cheerful stripes and pastels. We spoke to her about the coffee spots, artisan markets, and day trips she always makes time for when she’s in town.

What are a couple of your favorite things to do in Addis?

I grew up in Addis, and have a long list of favorite spots and activities. Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee, and home to an amazing jazz scene. In the afternoons, the Hilton Addis Ababa welcomes visitors with a beautiful traditional coffee ceremony in its lobby. And in the evenings, there is great jazz music at the Ghion Hotel. It’s one of the first hotels built in Addis, where you get the feeling of stepping back in time to golden era of Ethio-jazz in the 60s.

What’s your favorite shop or market?

Exploring local markets is one of my favorite things to do in Addis. In fact, it was a walk through the Shiro Meda market in Addis that inspired me to begin my brand. It’s a great spot to talk with local artisans and skilled tailors and find handmade traditional clothing, or order a beautiful custom-made garment.
