CULTURE AND PEOPLE IN ETHIOPIA
Great Opportunity For Adventure & Travels
Ethiopia is a melting pot of ethnic diversity, with over 80 distinct ethnic groups living in harmony within its borders. The largest of these is the Oromo, making up approximately 34% of the population, followed by the Amhara, Somali, and Tigray, among many others. Each ethnic group has its unique language, customs, and beliefs, which contribute to the rich cultural tapestry of the nation.
- One of the best examples of this cultural diversity is the array of languages spoken in Ethiopia. Amharic, the official language, is spoken by the Amhara people and serves as a lingua franca for many Ethiopians.
- Oromo, Somali, and Tigrinya are also widely spoken, and over 80 languages are used across the country. Despite these linguistic differences, Ethiopians have found unity in their shared history and cultural values which you are going to witness on Ethiopia Tours.
