Is April a good time to visit Ethiopia?

Throughout the April, southern Ethiopia follows the north; slowly rising temperatures allow for travel in and around the Omo Valley and much of southwestern Ethiopia.

The average temperature throughout April is a mild 25°C. Towards the end of April, you see the first signs of the upcoming monsoon season which generally lasts from June to August, making much of the Bale Mountains National Park, and Rift Valley Lakes area boggy, with some roads impassable.

In the north, the Simien Mountains and the rest of the northern highlands remain relatively dry throughout April.
