    Beautiful and must visit place in the capital
    We came up here to the new national park with a tour guide. Make sure to have your ID ready with you as they require it to enter the park. You walk down a hill and get to see all of the city of Addis Ababa before you. They also have the famous Ethiopia sign where you can stand in the middle and form the letter, T with your body to take the quintessential photo, if you don’t bring your own camera, there are lots of photographers around who will take your picture and print it for you for a small fee. There are a few cafés, we stopped for lunch and had a nice bite to eat on the way out of the mountain, I got to see a couple of monkeys along, the hillside, which was a lovely treat

    History of Coffee
    Fantastic day, ended with a traditional coffee ceremony atop Entoto Park. Great views of the whole city below you, quiet and very sparse crowds. Appreciated the historical information on coffee, and the delicate serving. Very refined event.

    Disappointed by the entrance fee!
    I love Entoto Park so much, I usually come here just for exercising and to get a coffee while enjoying the fresh air, and view of the incredible forest. But I was deeply saddened today, by the amount of entrance fee they started charging, it is so unreasonable, 1000 birr for foreigners and 200 birr for locals, and the bill receipt isn't even legalized. I think this should be reconsidered, considering the distance it is located from the center of Addis Ababa.

Entoto Natural Park exceeded my expectations with its natural beauty, cultural richness, and peaceful ambiance. It's a must-visit destination for travelers seeking a deeper connection with Ethiopia's history and landscapes.

Pros:
- Nature escape near a big city
- Beautiful eucalyptus forest
- Very family friendly with lots of activities (e.g., playground, trampoline park)
- A few different restaurants with friendly staff and fair prices
- Birds and trees and flowers and the beautiful outdoors

Cons:
- There seem to be no trails through the forest (at least not that we ever found), only walking on the road; no vehicles (except for shuttles) are allowed in, so road-walking was okay, but through the forest would have been much nicer
- The cameramen are very disrespectful and will try to take--or even actually take--your photo even if you say "no" numerous times

Though we have visited Entoto Park many times previously and thoroughly enjoyed it, today our experience was unlike other visits. One new member to our group of 6 forgot her ID. After realizing our plea to let us vouch for her and let us in was in vain, we started walking back to our cars. At that point one of the gate guards followed us across the road and physically grabbed one of our group (young woman) on the arm - seemingly in an effort to keep her from returning to our car. He claimed she had disrespected him. We had to pry his hands off her arm to leave. It was very upsetting...to say the least.

I liked this place because there're great view of the city, good nature and almost no beggars. There're a lot of interesting things along the road: tent hotel, acceptable cafes, some playgrounds. It's one of the few places i liked in Addis Ababa.

Consist of several spots and lovely tracks for walking and cycling and activities like zipline and carting. I recommended to have bicycle if you can't walk all the 11 Km.

I enjoyed the park immensely. The forest view is breathtaking, there were plenty of things to do, than i ever imagined and the food services is great (a little pricey but great). The rope courses and the zip liner games activities are awesome!
