Archeology
What other country can boast such rich archeology, anthropology. The oldest hominid (Australopithecus Ramidus) - a new species 4 was discovered in Ethiopia and is thought to be 4 million years old. Ethiopia is the home to Lucy's fossils (3.2 million) years old, and recent findings suggest the earliest ape man lived in Ethiopia 5 million years ago.

Natural environment
Ethiopia’s scenery is diverse and includes lakes, forests, savannah, depressions and deserts. Its elevation ranges from 120 meters below sea level the Danakil depression, to a 4620 meter peak in the Simien Mountains. The Bale National Park is the home of many endemic mammals and birds. Big game safaris of the Awash, Nech-Sar, Omo Mago National Parks are some of the major natural tour attractions. Ethiopia is truly a land of contrasts and extremes: a land of remote and wild places. Some of the highest and most stunning places on the African continent are found here and some of the lowest, such as the hot but fascinating Danakil Depression, with its sulphur fumaroles and lunar-like landscape.

Ethiopia is a country for outdoor-oriented people and those interested in safaris and expeditions... One of the most striking geographical features of the country, the Great Rift Valley, is home of chain of beautiful lakes, around which many of Ethiopia’s national parks are centred. The widely varying habitats, which include mountains, lakes, deserts, savannahs and everything in between, host an astonishing array of wildlife and bird life, many of which are endemic: unique to Ethiopia.
