Perched on the Abyssinian plateau, some 2400m above sea level, Addis boasts a climate classed as ‘tropical highland’ – in other words, balmy and temperate, with cloudless blue skies for about eight months of the year – all the more reason to visit. It’s well endowed with museums, including the culturally stimulating Ethnological Museum, set within emperor Haile Selassie’s former palace, which gives a great insight into Ethiopia’s many rich cultures. Another highlight is the National Museum, the collection of which ranks among the finest in sub-Saharan Africa; its star attraction is Lucy, the oldest hominid ever be found by archaeologists. Addis also gets rave reviews for its restaurant scene and nightlife. Bole Rd – the avenue that connects the airport to the centre – is the fashionable district, with plenty of fancy bars, eateries, galleries and clubs. Addis has lots of great surprises up its sleeve – it’s time to delve in!
