Just got back from our weekend at Salayish Lodge. Really, really lovely place and such lovely hosts. Please make the effort to go! We escaped from Addis by bus to Debre Zeit and although our taxi driver struggled to find the Lodge in the dark, our host stood in the rain giving him directions by phone. So massively appreciated after along day at work and dusty journey! As it was a celebration we upgraded to stay in the private lodge overlooking the lake. Wow, it was so worth it. We woke to an amazing view and had breakfast cooked for us by Lydia on our own terrace. Although the bed was little hard and we should of used a mosi-net (shows what type of travelers we are!), we had a really relaxing stay and will recommend to friends in Addis looking for an affordable weekend escape. Thanks!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on the edge of tranquil Lake Babogaya, Salayish Lodge and Park is the perfect place to relax during your stay in Ethiopia. The lodge consists of six traditionally built bamboo huts in a lush garden filled with avocado, mango and coffee trees, and one deluxe honeymoon suite with panoramic views over the lake and surrounding countryside. Just 1 hours’ drive south of Addis Ababa, and easily accessible by public transport, Salayish Lodge provides an ideal weekend break from the city. International travellers wanting a relaxing place to stay at the beginning or end of their Ethiopian travels can go directly to Bole airport from Salayish. (Airport pickup can be organised). Enjoy the menagerie of animals, beautiful sunsets, and simple, fresh meals cooked over a wood fire stove – then finish your evening around a campfire sipping home-made tej (honey wine). During the day you can enjoy a horse-ride, do some bird-watching, or visit some of the other crater lakes in the Debre Zeyit area. ... more less
