Transportation and parking
The airport is close to the city of Asmara and is reasonably served by buses and taxis.

There is limited available parking for short- and long-term stays, and spaces do fill up quickly.

A further celebration of the flora of the region can be found at the tranquil Entebbe Botanical Gardens, which is home to a troop of colobus and vervet monkeys. Ensure that you go on an official guided tour, and steer clear of unofficial guides.
