Is February a good time to visit Ethiopia?

The weather conditions in February are perfect. The skies should be clear and blue, and daytime temperatures hover around a pleasant 25°C. At night, temperature drop to around 10°C in more lowland regions, but can be much colder in the highlands. 

February is well outside the rainy season, so heavy showers are unlikely, although temperatures can colder at night due to the altitude so make sure to bring a good jacket!

February is one of the more popular months for travel in Ethiopia, so you will likely see more tourists at the popular destinations than if you visit later in the year.
