  Geographical Situation

Addis Ababa is situated 9° north of the equator, in central Ethiopia. The Park area, on the mountain of Entoto, extends from the northern edge of the city, at an altitude of  2 600m and further north over the mountain crest at almost  3 100 m. From several spots, there is the splendid outlook over the sprawling city and over five high solitary mountains, in the southwest to the southeast (Menagesha, Wachecha, Furi Zukuala and Yerer).

Facing north from the top ridge, one looks out over vast plains, towards Sululta and some bare mountains. The mountain ridge on which the Park is located constitutes a big water divider. The northern slope drains into the Blue Nile, and the precipitation from the southern slope will
end up in the Awash River.

This has the curious result that two raindrops falling at the same time just a few centimetres apart, will have entirely different destinies. This while one of the drops will after a long journey, reach the Mediterranean Sea. In contrast, the other will pass through the city of Addis Ababa, eventually evaporating in the Danakil Desert, as the Awash River never reaches the sea.


The lower part of the Park adjoins Addis Ababa's northern outskirts, at the district known as Shero Meda (Shiromeda).

Coming from the central parts of the city, the 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 (Håkan Blanck and Pia Englund, Entoto Natural Park 1995).

Elevated Protectorate

The society Entoto Kidane Mehret (1) 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. However, the Hotel and Guesthouse is missing, which means that most of the well-established accommodations for tourism are located in Entoto Park (Z) or the proximity of Shero Meda (Shiromeda) community.

The New Facilities of Entoto Park (Z).

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