Ethiopia is one of the very few countries in Africa that never got successfully colonized. That makes for a very special and inherently original African culture, and mixed with the country’s wild topography (most of the country is above 2000+ meters in altitude!), beautiful people and varied landscapes, you get an incredibly photogenic place where every corner hides new secrets and awesome views. Here are a few of the best shots.
