Tips

  • Try your hand at rowing Tankwas, which is a kind of papyrus canoe, commonly found on Lake Tana.
  • If you’re invited to someone’s home, you can take a gift of raw coffee or ‘Bhuna’ which is available at kiosk shops.
  • When you greet someone with a handshake, bow a little bit to show respect.
  • Rise to your feet when an elderly person joins you. As a customary greeting, you can say ‘nor’. They will reply saying ‘be'igzier’ and ask you to sit.
  • Women need to cover their knees and shoulders in Ethiopia, except while visiting Addis Ababa.
  • Restaurant tips range from 2 to 5 Birr irrespective of the total cost of the meal.
  • Ethiopian ATMs do not recognize foreign credit or debit cards so come well-prepared.
  • Ask your tour guide if you’re confused about the ingredients in your meal. For instance, ‘Kitfo’ is raw minced beef and can be a little difficult to digest.
