Expand your social circle in Ethiopia

Hello everyone,

Moving to Ethiopia means leaving one's family and friends behind. Creating a circle of friends or joining an existing one should therefore be paramount in order to fight loneliness in your host country.

But how can one develop a social network in Ethiopia? Where and how to meet people there?

How easy is it to meet locals? What about cultural specificities?

Share your advice and experience!

Many thanks in advance,


Most importantly learn Amharic. If you know some Amharic, a new world will open for you in Ethiopia. If you don't know any Amharic, you may feel like an Alien on a different planet.
