Emperor Menelik II moved his capital city from Ankober (a town 175 km to the northeast) to the top of the Entoto Mountains and founded Addis Ababa in 1886. Addis Ababa “new flower” later set at the foot of the Entoto Mountains. It is centrally located within Ethiopia as a capital city.

The altitude of Addis varies from 3,200m at the top of Entoto to 2200m at the foot of the city. Despite its proximity to the Equator, the lofty altitude of the world's third-highest capital enjoys a mild Afro-alpine climate.

As a city surrounded by a chain of mountains and covered by eucalyptus trees, it is a natural amphitheater with its unique fascination. Addis Ababa is a cosmopolitan city serving as a seat of many international organizations like the AU, ECA, etc. It is Africa’s diplomatic capital where politicians, businesspersons, and visitors mingle.

There is a very wide choice of merchandise to suit the taste of any visitor. The city has also international standard first-class hotels with thermal bath and cozy restaurants that serve spicy and delicious Ethiopian dishes, and drinks, and wines of international repute. Addis Ababa, besides being the startling and ending point for all the various trips, has a number of historical, cultural and archaeological attractions of its own.

There is a half-day, a full day and a one-day excursion trip from Addis. These trips usually conducted at the beginning or end of a major trip. These trips are also ideal for Conference Tourists that just have a couple of days before, between or after meetings.
