Best Time to Fly to Ethiopia

Ethiopia's High Season for tourism is between January and March. The weather is sunny and warm, making it an excellent time for visiting wildlife and enjoying their many festivals, like Ledet and Timkat. The Shoulder Season lasts from October to December, when everything is green and flourishing, plus many majestic birds are migrating into Ethiopia. Finally, Low Season spans April through September. Many tourists avoid this time of year, since the weather is rainy, visibility is poor, and temperatures can become very hot in the lowlands.
