Frequently asked questions

What are the major attractions in Addis Ababa?
If your trip to Addis Ababa is all sorted out but your itinerary is looking a little empty, let us give you a helping hand.Stop by Edna Mall. It’s one sight you’ll find on most visitors’ must-do lists. Holy Trinity Cathedral and National Museum of Ethiopia are also a stone’s throw away and worth a pit stop.
Where are the best convention centers near Addis Ababa?
Located 1 mile from Addis Ababa, ECA Conference Center is a fabulous place to go for a work conference. After an exhausting day of mingling and getting to know new faces, you’ll be able to jump into your rental car and drive out to a nearby café or go for a relaxing spin around the area.
What kind of rental car should I get for Addis Ababa?
Having your own car in Addis Ababa will give you more flexibility to go wherever you want at your own pace. Maybe you’re eager to head out of town, explore country lanes, and go wherever the wind takes you. If so, collect the keys to one of our mid-size or full-size SUVs and explore the savannahs in the area. If you just can’t get enough of the bright city lights, something small is a good idea. Dashing around bustling streets and heavy traffic will be much less stressful with a compact or mini car.

Specialty and prestige vehicles are all about comfort and class. If you feel like splashing out, why not pick up a high-end SUV, or perhaps a cushy medium-sized vehicle? Alternatively, if you’re just after something to zip around town in as cheaply as possible, you’re better off choosing an economy compact vehicle (or something else that won’t blow your budget).
