Ethiopia, covering an area of 1.14 million square Km, is the tenth largest country in Africa.It is located in East Africa in the sub-region known as the Horn of Africa, between the approximate latitudes of 4 and 14 degrees north. The south end of Ethiopia’s Danakil Depression ends in neighboring Djibouti at the lowest place on the continent and is, perhaps, the most daring place to visit for adventure-loving tourists. At the opposite end of the elevation spectrum are the rugged Simien Mountains and Bale Mountains,home to different endemic animals, and, in between, is the Great Rift Valley with its lakes and volcanic crater lakes.
