The southern part of Ethiopia does not belong among the historical lands of the Ethiopian Empire.
Towards the end of the 19th century, Menelik – the ruler of the Shewa province and the future Emperor of Ethiopia – decided to conquer the lands neighboring Ethiopia to the south, to the east, and a relatively narrow area located to the west.
The lands conquered at that time constitute more than half of contemporary Ethiopia. They are mostly inhabited by Muslims (in the eastern part) and even today the largest number of followers of traditional African religions inhabits the south and the west of the country. The religious situation and the different ethnic mixture in this area were among the features which for many decades distinguished them from the rest of the Empire.
For the last ten years, the southern part of Ethiopia (officially known as the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Region) has attracted the attention of a growing number of tourists, who regularly come to visit this area.
