Country Profile

Located in the Horn of Africa, the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia has an area of 1,112,000 square kilometres making it roughly five times the size of the UK and as large as France and Spain combined. Ethiopia is truly a land of natural contrast & extremes, best expressed in the enormous range of altitudes within relative proximity of one another, together with their corresponding climates and resultant vegetation. Ras Dashen, Ethiopia’s highest peak, stands at 4543 metres above sea level, and the lowest point in the country, the Danakil Depression is 125 metres below sea level. These unique geographical conditions have blessed the country with tremendous gorges and canyons, the splendour of the Great Rift Valley, stunning scenic beauty and distinct forms of biodiversity.
