There are trains from Djibouti through Dire Dawa to Addis Ababa but not reliable.

Overland travel from Kenya is possible through Moyale security became better, you can hitch a ride on a cattletruck from Isiolo. Road condition is ok, but don't expect a comfy ride. You have a great view from the truck for a couple of days though.

From Moyale there is all kind of transport into Ethiopia.

The border between Eritrea and Ethiopia is closed and overland travel from Sudan and from Somalia hardly to be recommended.
