Driving Directions Ethiopia
ETHIOPIA is a landlocked, east African republic that borders Sudan, Kenya, Somalia, Djibouti, and Eritrea. Formerly known as Abyssinia, the country is dominated by a high, central plateau of volcanic rock from which rise rugged mountains ascending to heights of 4,572 meters or 15,000 feet. The Great African Rift Valley divides the plateau into the higher, more rugged, and extensive Western Highlands and the Eastern Highlands’ smaller area. The plateau is deeply dissected by river valleys forming towering cliffs and escarpments, especially in the northeast.
