Tour Code CIET - 007

Duration 2 Nights & 3 Days

Transport Road

Highlights: Wondo Genet & Langano

Day - 1

Arrival to Addis Ababa, transfer to your hotel for overnight.

Day - 2

Drive to Wondo Genet via rift valley lakes. We start to climb after passing Langano, leaving the drier acacia forest for the greener areas around Shashemene. From Shashemene we turn east for about 13 km for the mountain and spa resort of Wondo Genet - or "place of heaven". The hot water comes gushing out of the rocks and one can stand underneath, getting a natural hydro massage. There is also a naturally heated swimming pool. The scenery around the lodge is hilly and Juniper forested. While most visitors may prefer to relax around the spa, there are some very good walks in the hills, with plenty of bird life: the endemic yellow fronted parrot, the Black-headed forest Oriole and the Golden-backed Woodpecker can easily be seen, along with the Redwing starling, Grosbeak Weaver, Mountain wagtail and Black Roughwing Swallow and wildlife - with Colobus and Vervet monkeys, Anbuis baboon and bushbuck. Spectacular sunsets can be seen from the terrace outside the bar, with a great view of Lake Awassa.

Day - 3

More relaxation or forest walks. After taking lunch in the hotel, we return to Addis Ababa. We will take a stop at the Bekele Molla hotel on the shores of Lake Langano, and arrive in Addis Ababa late afternoon. Depending on your program you will be transferred to the airport in the evening or in the next morning.
