Family holidays with children in Ethiopia - attractions and entertainment

Vacationers, who plan to travel to Ethiopia with kids, are better to stay in Addis Ababa. The capital has better infrastructure, is more comfortable to say, and is less polluted. If there is a wish to visit another city and explore its landmarks, tourists can always hire a taxi or buy bus tickets. This is still easier than staying in a small town constantly as tourists can face such problems as lack of bottled water, poor sanitary conditions, and unsafe food in this case.

In the capital city, don’t forget to visit one of the most popular entertainments for children – the zoo. The Lion Zoo is home to a whole family of lions. That being said, there are other animals besides lions. For example, kids will be excited to see the deer, handsaw, ape, and various amphibians that live in Africa. It is allowed to hand feed some animals. Naturally, this rule applies only to safe and friendly animals that cannot bite or injure neither adults nor children. Needless to say, only certain products can be used to feed the animals because not all food for humans is safe for animals. The zoo provides detailed information on this subject to its guests. The Lion Zoo is a charming place with several comfortable areas for recreation and a café with ice cream and desserts.

If your child is keen on museums, take him or her to several interesting exhibitions in Addis Ababa. For example, the National Museum – the main museum in the country – excites even children who usually feel bored in long halls with glass display windows. This museum exhibits unique findings of archaeologists, ancient human skeletons, petrified plants, relics – in short, everything that was discovered in Ethiopia and that has at least some historic or cultural value. Your child will be able to learn more about the lifestyle of ancient humans and find out how our forefathers picked berries, hunted, and what tools they had.
Of course, almost all excursions look boring for small children. If your child sits in a baby stroller from time to time, he or she is likely to fall asleep. What can make a child stand up and go? A visit to a game center, of course. In Ethiopia, tourists can visit Bob and Bongo’s Fun and Game Center that is intended for pre-school children. Playgrounds, numerous toys, swings, slides, trampolines, bubble pools – the center has so much to offer. There is even a separate hall with virtual reality games. Finally, a small cinema at Bob and Bongo’s screens funny cartoons.
