Ethiopia has better mountains and is more mountainous and I'm not being biased

But yeah Mount Kenya is taller but it's quite independent

More mountainous definitely.... But I think having a colossus in the middle of the savannah add a lot of diversity of landscapes . Who never saw the kilimanjaro from Kenyans plains with elephants . Nigeria is out of the game for me.

1. In terms of safety, Kenya might be the safest place to visit, had several Kenyan friends once. But not much in terms of
culture I think.

2. Nigeria, know a good deal about the country, had friends from that country and a local Nigerian business woman shop
owner I knew had flyers for a trip and guided tour of the Yoruba section of Nigeria as she was a Yoruba Princess,
we would be going to various Yoruba festivals and ceremonies. For a $500.00 deposit, she would take care of the visas,
and medical papers etc. ( when the flyer said $500.00 non-refundable deposit as down payment, my Mom said "Scam!").

Very rich and interesting culture but don't trust the people as far as being involved in money matters with them. Other
Africans were always warning me about Nigerians. The trip was cancelled due to civil unrest in the country at that time.
Or maybe there was never a trip to begin with.

3. As far as Ethiopia is concerned, I never knew any so I can't make a judgement on them, never got interested in the
culture as it seemed "less African" to me. I have much more exposure to West Africans than East Africans.

For safety, Ethiopia is the safest of the three....Kenya used to be safer about 15 years ago or so...but those days are long gone. Kenya still gets a lot of tourists though, but these days there are lists and lists of precautions and warnings (nowhere near as long or as bad as Nigeria though).

Ethiopia while not crime free, is usually known as one of the safer capital cities in all of Africa.

The worst crime even I hear everytime I go back in Addis is just pickpocketing
