Ethiopia is remarkably safe most of the time as serious or violent crime against travellers is extremely rare.
To drive in Ethiopia, a person needs to be 18 years or older. The speed limit for cars and motorcycles in towns and villages is 30-50 km/h and outside towns 100 km/h. Drivers are not permitted to use their mobile phones whilst driving and motorcyclists must wear crash helmets.
There are no rules guiding against drinking alcohol in Ethiopia provided you are aged 18 and above. In fact, Ethiopians widely entertain indigenous or foreign alcoholic beverages to the best of their capacity.
The influx of mosquitoes and the highest levels of malaria transmission are observed in the north, west and eastern lowland of Ethiopia. Visitors are advised to purchase mosquito nets and repellents before visiting the country.
