Toto in Kiswahili means a child and Entoto is so much larger than life.
I decided to visit this special place a few weeks ago with a relative who had missed his flight to South Africa, and had just half a day in Addis before...More
I visited Entoto during my time in Addis this fall, going with one of our guides that we have used on previous visits. It doesn’t take terribly long (max 1-2 hrs) to tour the tiny museum (relics of Emperor Menelik) and walk around the grounds...More

On a one day visit, I would definitely include this site on your itinerary. It does not take very long to get there, and the site itself only takes a short time to see everything, but with a good guide you can get a nice history of Ethiopia and its former ruler. There are beautiful views.
