Captures the whole Family's Real Interest in Charming Adventures.

Entoto  Park (Z) opens the gates to the captivating way for the whole family to care and, in curiosity, explore the inviting gems of Entoto's mountain massif's original nature. Very near are here the phenomenon within the foundation of the world's ground pillars. This invitation to humankind's real heart fulfils the essential purpose of creating an eager will for learning about health and origin. The Park's closeness to natural science delivers a captivating understanding for the family about creating natural and healthy water and other vital biological processes with their scientific background. However, this nature's scientific context is crucial to intellectual processes that form the basis for civilizations.

Grandiose Landscape & Adventures

Entoto Park (Z) and the Citadel of Dreams

The newly inaugurated Entoto Park (Z)
Dramatically elevated buildings constitute the new Entoto Park (Z) and form the amazing mountain-dwelling for the whole family's interest in comfort and high-spirited culture. The dramatic and historical Entoto mountain massif includes now the newly inaugurated Entoto Park (Z), inviting the entire family's expectations to spend time in the pleasant leisure with gardens or exploring many highly inspiring activities.

Attractions of a Magnitude to a World Centre.
Here, the landscape's high drama constitutes the adventure's core to be incredibly close with breathtaking miles of mountain ranges and dagger-deep ravines. The Capital is immediate here but still surprisingly remote through the site's elevated rocky ledge. This contrast with the Capital and its high mountain park is genuinely something unique with its culture and activities. 

The lower part of the Park adjoins Addis Ababa

 The Capital's northern outskirts, known as Shero Meda (Shiromeda)

Coming from the central parts of the city, Entoto Avenue leads up to the school of Kuskuam in the north of Shero Meda and further along the border of the Park to the Church of Entoto Maryam (HΓ₯kan Blanck and Pia Englund, Entoto Natural Park 1995). 

There is a specific selection of entrances to the different areas of the Park.  The purpose of these separate entrances and their nature types is to promote the visitors' interests and enjoyment.  These specific interests here include both very relaxing activities but also more wild or cultural.  This extensive selection is essential and follows both man's and nature's way of expressing a desire for health through attractive diversity.

The Routes To the High Plateau

Shero Meda (Shiromeda) -

Central Station for Bus and Taxi.
This community in the capital's northern district offers a central station for further taxi and bus services to the Capital's city centre and a direct taxi connection to Entoto Maryam (43), Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) and Entoto Park (Z). The Capital's buses and municipal taxis regularly have Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) as the final location.

Comfortable Walk to the Park.
However, the town and station Shero Meda are close enough to Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) to offer a pleasant walk to Entoto Natural Park. Shero Meda (Shiromeda) also allows the easiest access to Entoto Maryam (43), located on Entoto's high plateau.

Entoto Kidane Mehret 

Church (32) and Community (1)
A Mountain-based Station for buses and Taxis.

Although Entoto Kidane Mehret is quite highly located and appears distant due to its height above the Capital, it's equipped with a station for regular bus and taxi traffic. This quaint town's structure creates here a harmonic embrace of the extensive and impressive Entoto Kidane Mehret Church (32), Monastery and Sacred Water Source (31), Juniperus procera Forest (indigenous) 30. The choice of Entoto Kidane Mehret as a central base for further exploration of the Park is natural because both the Capital's buses and municipal taxis regularly have this place as the final location. They are here waiting in the shade of large native trees before they again turn downhill and soon arrive in the Shero Meda (Shiromeda) station and society and further the more central part of the Capital. However, the Hotel and Guesthouse is missing, which means that the nearest accommodation for tourism and dining is the Shero Meda (Shiromeda) community.

Entoto Kidane Mehret
A Sanctuary with the Sublime pleasures of Dreams.
Although this rock-based sanctuary (32) and society (1) towers within the Capital's northern boundaries and mountain massifs, it seems to be very preserved and well above all stressful whims. Furthermore, this Church and Monastery (32) are astonishing hidden, tucked into the mountain massif rising shoulder where perception arises very soon to be careful because precipices and gullies take over immediately when you just move away from a little piece of this cosy town (1).

Elevated Protectorate. 
Entoto Kidane Mehret is a very dedicated and appealing mountain town but should indeed more precisely be described as a profoundly religious Sanctuary and Protectorate of Nature and Inhabitants. For a long time, this has been a religious protectorate of Entoto's nature, thus gaining unique and profound protection that has been deeply associated with religious devotion and conviction.

The Park's Activities and the Capital

The Park's Activities and the Capital

All over the Park, up to the very top, you will now and then catch a glimpse of the Capital below the mountain. This is inevitable and should not be considered as a disadvantage. Instead, the contact and the overlapping of the city and countryside is essential to point out. The Capital cannot isolate itself from nature and the rural areas but depends heavily on them. From the mountain, the city does not look repellent at all but fascinating.

Experience of the Ethiopian Nature and Science Beauty A National Park near Addis Ababa will attract many people every season. School children will be a category actively using the Park for environmental education purposes (or to find a peaceful spot to do the homework.

The New Facilities of Entoto Park (Z).

The facilities of Entoto Park (Z) are located just below the Entoto Maryam (43). These newly built facilities should inform the regulations for special open hours of this very modern and extended centre for Entertainment, Culture, Art, Sport Activities and Breathtaking Highlands views of Nature and mountains. However, the freshly made Entoto Park is in its first phase of organizational development and is challenging to give personal service time.  Despite this, there are probably conditions for direct contact with restaurants at this newly inaugurated Entoto Park (Z)
