Is July a good time to visit Ethiopia?

Much like June, July is not a great month to visit Ethiopia. The rains come in heavy downpours, and the lodges in the national parks are closed as trekking becomes very difficult. 

Transport links are also disrupted due to the heavy rains, and this includes both road links and domestic flight schedules. 

The Omo Valley is much drier at this time of year, but also quite hot. The Danakil Depression is at its hottest from June to August, and group tours won't be running there at this time of year. 

Our guide on when to visit Ethiopia goes into more detail on regional differences, and other considerations when planning your adventure across this amazing country.
