Great place to go if you have half day to spend out of Addis; rescued black lions, chettahs and baboons are having a peaceful retired time within beautiful acacia (grar) forest.

Great forest of Juniper, Hagenia and other indigenous trees, covering a high peak, perfect for picnic and walking

First things first - doing this as a day trip in the wet season is a bad idea. It takes two hours to get out there from Addis and then back in again due to traffic and the rain renders the mud road up to the entrance nearly impassable....More

It is not far at all from Addis Ababa.. you can go and camp there or have a room(very cheap) in the guest house inside the forest.

This is a good 90 minutes outside of the center of Addis Ababa. It is a beautiful forest and well worth the drive. If you have a 4 wheel drive you can actually drive up part of the mountain. But that seems like you are...More

Roughly 90 minutes drive from Addis Abeba. Perfect for a daytrip or a long weekend. Breathtaking (you can take that literally as you are pretty high), fresh air, a lot of animals. Difficult to get lost if you take the walkways. Don't expect maps or...More

Hi, you really need to get a car with a driver or pay the taxi to wait for you. If it's still raining a lot, you will need a four wheel driver vehicle as the road is steep and unsealed. It will cost about USD$100 - $110 for... More
