In this land of many wonders tourism declined during the 1970s and 1980s. The recovery began in the 1990s, but growth has been somewhat constrained by the lack of hospitality infrastructure, and by the effects of drought and political instability.

Regardless, people do travel to Ethiopia. The country's major attractions include numerous national parks, historic cities and sites, and the fast-growing eco tourism industry. In addition, mountain trekking and walking safaris are popular activities.
