Itineraries – Short Tours

A – Short Tours

Easygo Ethiopia Tours & Travel offers a variety of short tours from Addis Ababa for those of you who would like to associate themselves a bit more to this unique land & its people, while in transit or being in Addis for a sojourn. These tours can be taken either by road or by air or even more comfortably by private plane or helicopter.

If you take Addis Ababa as the hub, there are 6 main roads coming out like spokes to the North, North East, South East, South, South West and West.
To the north is the Gojjam road, to Debre Libanos, the Blue Nile Gorge and Bahir Dar. The road to the northeast is the Asmara Road, which will take visitors to the Senbete Market, Kombolcha and Dessie.  The road to the south east forks about 70 km from Addis Ababa at Mojo, with one fork leading east to Awash, and then forking again with roads leading east to Dire Dawa and Harer and north east to the Red Sea ports of Dijbouti and Assab. From Mojo the other fork heads south, passing the Rift Valley lakes and continuing to Moyale and the border with Kenya.

The road directly south is the Butajira road, the road to the southwest, the Jimma Road, while the road to the West is the Ambo Road – the last two meet in Gambella near the border with Sudan

On these routes there are a variety of attractions for visitors, from historic and religious sites, to bird life and wild life and places of scenic beauty. For convenience sake we will take each route in turn, starting with Addis Ababa itself. While some visitors may be less interested in bird life, the birds we can expect to see will be mentioned in each tour.

These 1 and 2 day itineraries are planned for road travel, but Easygo Ethiopia Tours & Travelcan arrange two-day tours by air to one of the four towns on the Historic Route – Axum, Lalibela, Gondar, Bahir Dar – or the city of Harer via Dire Dawa.

EASYGO 101 Addis Ababa City tour – half day

Addis Ababa, lying at an average of 2400 meters, is the world’s third highest capital and Entoto is more than 500 m higher.  As one drives uphill, one can feel the drop in the atmospheric pressure and the aroma of the Eucalyptus trees that cover the hills.

From the top, there is a panoramic view of the capital and surrounding countryside. Entoto is an important watershed, to the north water flows to the Blue Nile, to the south, to the Awash River. Your guide will point out the important landmarks of the city.

The would be permanent seat of the monarch, Entoto, did not sustain the qualification due to harsh weather, limitations for provision, and above all shortage of fire-wood.  Empress Taytu was said to have led the move down to the plain around the hot springs, Filwuha, and to have named the new capital Addis Ababa, or New Flower, which is just unfolding.  However, two important structures remain within the old imperial compound on Entoto, the octagonal Churches of St. Mary and the Archangel Raguel.  Menelik was crowned Emperor of Ethiopia in 1889 in this St. Mary Church. Today, there is a museum in the adjacent compound displaying exponents of sacral relics and imperial regalia. 

Leaving the Entot hills we proceed to the National Archaeological Museum.  The museum exhibits, in addition to the 3.4 m/4.4m years old fossils of “Lucy”/ “Ardi”, respectively, a significant range of relics pertaining the paleo-anthropology, ancient and modern history, ethnography as well as old and modern art of this mosaic land of peoples.

EASYGO 102 Full day Addis Ababa City tour

We start at 8.30 with a pick up from your hotel and drive north up to Mount Entoto.  In 1881 Emperor Menelik II made his permanent camp there, after remains of an old town (believed to have been the capital of 16th century monarch Lebna Dengel) were discovered, which Menelik thought was a divine and auspicious sign. 

Addis Ababa at between 2300 – 2500 meters is the third highest capital in the world and Entoto is a few hundred meters higher – as we drive up the hill there is an appreciable drop in altitude and the air is filled with the scent of the Eucalyptus trees which line the road.

From the top, there is a panoramic view of the capital and surrounding countryside.  Entoto is an important watershed, to the north water flows to the Blue Nile, to the south to the Awash River.   Your guide will point out the important landmarks of the city.

Entoto was soon abandoned as a site for the capital – it was cold, difficult to provision and there was a shortage of wood.  Empress Taytu was said to have led the move down to the plain of Finfine, and to have named the new capital Addis Ababa, or New Flower.  However, two important structures remain within the old imperial compound, the churches of Mariam and the Archangel Raguel.  It was in the church of Mariam that Menelik was crowned Emperor of Ethiopia in 1889, and in the small museum in the compound there are various clothes, court and household implements and weapons dating from the period.  The church of Raguel is unusual in that it is octagonal, rather than round.  There is a first story balustrade around which Menelik liked to stroll.

Leaving the churches we descend to Addis Ababa, stopping off at the National Archaeological Museum.  Here visitors can see exhibits ranging from the 3.5 million year old bones of Lucy, through the Axumite and Gondarene periods to the monarchs Tewodros and Menelik.

We will take a break here for lunch – there are a number of possibilities, we could take lunch in the Lucy Restaurant, in the grounds of the National Museum, at Blue Tops across from the National Museum, or visitors may prefer to sample Ethiopian food at the atmospheric Addis Ababa restaurant, once the home of Empress Zauditu.

After lunch we resume our tour with a visit to the Institute of Ethiopian Studies, where we can see clothing from different regions, along with artifacts, household utensils and in a separate section, paintings reflecting the history and culture of the country. 

This building was once the Genete Palace of Emperor Haile Selassie, and visitors can see his bedroom and bathroom.

There is an interesting display in Giorghis Church, and after seeing that we will visit  Menelik’s mausoleum, where Etege Taitu and Queen Zauditu are also buried.

We then move to the Mercato, the largest market area in Africa, where virtually every possible commodity is on sale, from livestock to computers.  For the visitor good at bargaining, there is a huge selection of Ethiopian arts and crafts. 

We now return to our hotel.  Tonight we will take our dinner in a national food restaurant, and see dancing from Ethiopia’s different regions.

EASYGO 103 Debre Libanos and the Jemma River Gorge – 1 day

We start off in the morning hours and head north on the Gojjam highway to Debre Libanos, about 110 km from Addis Ababa.

Debre Libanos is an important monastic center for Ethiopian Orthodox Christianity. The monastery was founded by the renowned 13th century mystic, St. Tekelehaimanot. There is a small cave near the Church from where he is supposed to have established the monastery.

En route, we can encounter Black-winged plovers, Wattled Ibis, Blue-winged geese, Common Cranes and Wheat ears as we pass through the Sululta Plain.

 On arrival at Debre Libanos, we will first stop at the Jemma River gorge.  The Jemma River is one of the tributaries of the Nile, and there is a drop of nearly 1000 metres to the valley below.  Here at the gorge (and in the forest around the church) we can expect to see the Banded Barbet, the Black-headed Forest Oriole, the White-billed Starling, the Red-billed Starling, the White-winged Cliff Chat, the White-backed Black Tit, the White-cheeked Turaco and Hemprich’s Hornbill.  We will also see one of Ethiopia’s endemic mammals, the Gelada or bleeding heart baboon.   (In the gorge we will see a variety of vultures – Lamergeyer’s, Ruppell’s and Lappet faced vultures.) 

At some stage we will take a picnic lunch, either at the Gorge or in the forest near the Church.  We will leave Debre Libanos in the afternoon, arriving in Addis Ababa early evening.

 

 

EASYGO 104 Debre Berhan and Ankober – 1 day

We set off at 8 am, heading north-east on the highway to Kombolcha & Dessie. At some 140 km, we will reach the town of Debre Birhan that used to be the seat of Shoan kings amongst of which  Emperor Menelik  was one. A Church of Selassie that was restored in 1906 stands in the middle of the town. 

We now take the road east to another former imperial capital – Ankober, a little over 40 km from Debre Berhan. Founded by King Amaha Iyesus, Ankober commanded the very important trade route between the eastern lowlands and the Shoan plateau.  Abandoned by Menelik II in favour of Entoto (and later Addis Ababa), the old palace ruins can still be seen, and two of the original five churches (Mariam and Medhane Alem) are still in active use.

From Anokober, you  have marvelous views over the escarpment and here birdwatchers have a considerable chance of watching the very rare Ankober Serin and other species such as: Smith’s francolin, yellow throated serin, white billed starling, black-winged love bird, lammergeyer, mountain buzzard, Peregrine, red-breasted sparrow hawk, alpine swift and blue rock thrush.  Wildlife recorded in the area includes: Leopard, Colobus and Vervet Monkeys, Gelada Baboon, Menelik’s Bushbuck, Klipsringer and Rock Hyrax. 

We will drive back sometime in the afternoon to reach in Addis around early evening.

ADVENTURE

EASYGO 105 Melka Kunture, Adadi Mariam and Tiya

Pick up is at 7.30 am, and we then head south-west on the Jimma road, before turning due south on to the Butajira Road.  Melka Kunture lies near the Awash River Gorge and is one of the most important neolithic sites in Ethiopia.  Hand axes and various other implements have been found here.  There is a museum at the site.

About 15 km further off the Butajira Highway, is the semi-monolithic rock church of Adadi Mariam, contemporaneous with those of Lalibela – in fact local tradition ascribes it to King Lalibela who is said to have had it chiseled on his visit to Mount Zuqwala in 1106.  Damaged during the wars with Ahmed Gragn in the 16th century, it fell into disuse and was only reopened in the time of Menelik II.  It is today in regular use.

Our final stop today is at Tiya, classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, where we can see the northernmost example of a peculiar type of engraved, standing stellae which stretch across parts of southern Ethiopia.  These stellae are believed to have been erected between the 12th and 14th centuries and are almost certainly grave markers – recent excavations at Tiya have revealed the remains of young people of both sexes, aged between18 – 30 and buried in foetal positions. 

At some stage today we will take a picnic lunch, perhaps near the Awash River Gorge, and leave for the return journey to Addis Ababa mid afternoon.

EASYGO 106 Ambo and Wonchi Crater Lake – 1 day

We set off at 7.00, heading west on the new Ambo road.  We will pass Menagesha Forest to the north of the road, the Holetta River (a tributary of the Awash), the small town of Addis Alem where Menelik II once planned to make his capital, before reaching Ambo, some 120 km from the capital.

The area between Addis Alem and Ambo contains the intersections of three of Ethiopia’s major river basins: those of the Awash, Omo and Guder.

We will stop for some refreshment in the town of Ambo, from where Ethiopia’s most famous mineral water is drawn, before driving up nearly 1000 meters in 27 km to the rim of the Wonchi crater, where visitors will see one of the most beautiful sites in Ethiopia – verdant forests, a lake with islands, all within the crater. 

We can leave our vehicles here and descend either on foot or on horse, or drive down all the way to the crater.  We will have a picnic lunch here and spend some hours walking or horse riding through the forest, visiting the hot springs, and taking a dug-out boat over to the island to visit the church. Mid afternoon we will start our journey back to Addis Ababa.

The formerly state owned Ethiopia Hotel in Ambo has been privatized is being refurbished and has great grounds.  Across the road from the hotel is the swimming pool, fed by springs.  This one day tour can easily be extended to 2 days, with an overnight at the Ethiopia Hotel.

EASYGO 107 Middle Rift Valley Lakes – Ziway, Langano, Abijata-Shalla – 2 days

Day 1:  We set off early down the Rift Valley, passing through Debre Zeit, and by the lakes of Koka and Ziway. We will stop at Lake Ziway for the alarming congregation of aquatic birds.  African Pygmy Geese, Yellow-billed Storks, Collared Pratincoles, Lesser and greater Jacanas, African Jacanas, White Pelicans, Fish Eagles, crowned and common cranes are some of the species to be seen here in impressive numbers.

We proceed further to Lake Langano for checking into our lodge. Lake Langano is bilharzia free and good for a dip. Walk along the shores of the lake or go bird watching in the forests along the lake shores. 

Later in the afternoon, we could visit Abijata-Shalla National Park. Lake Shalla is the deepest of the Rift Valley Lakes at 260 m.  We can stop at a point for a view over the two lakes before heading down to the lake shore where there are a number of springs so hot that locals boil maize, potato or egg in them.   We then head towards Abijata Lake, where by this time of day the lakes shores will be pink from the thousands of both lesser and greater Flamingo’s which feed in the shallows.  African Pochard, Avocet, Gull billed Tern and Pintail, Ruff and a variety of ducks are among other species to be seen. Overnight in a lodge

Day 2: We will spend the morning relaxing by the lake, take our lunch in the hotel and leave for Addis Ababa in mid afternoon, arriving early evening.

EASYGO 108 Wondo Genet – 2 days

Day 1: With an early take off we break the day passing through Debre Zeit, and by the lakes of Koka, Zwai, Langano, Abiata and Shalla.  We start to climb after passing Langano, leaving the drier acacia forest for the greener areas around Shashamene.

From Shasmene we turn east for about 14 km for the mountain and spa resort of Wondo Genet or “place of heaven”.

The waters are reputed to have curative properties.  One can get a natural hydro-massage by just standing beneath the gushing hot water.  There is also a swimming pool continually refilled with the natural hot water.  The scenery around the lodge is hilly and Juniper forested.  You may just kick it off staying around the spa or take a good walk 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 Roughewing Swallow – and wildlife –  colobus and vervet monkeys, anubis baboon and bushbuck. 

By good weather, you will also have a great chance of observing a spectacular sunset with a great view of Lake Hawassa.

Day 2: More leisure time or forest walks.  After taking lunch in the hotel, we start off back to Addis with a stop at Lake Ziway to observe the myriads of aquatic birds, and arrive in Addis Ababa late afternoon.

EASYGO 109 Hawassa – 2 days

Day 1: With an early start we break the day passing through Debre Zeit, and by the Lakes: Koka, Zwai, Langano, Abijata and Shalla.  We start to climb after passing Langano, leaving the drier acacia forest for the greener areas around Shashamene. 

A short distance from Shashamene is the town of Hawassa, capital of the southern region.   We will check into our resort, which is situated on the shores of the lake.  Lake Hawassa is one of Ethiopia’s most beautiful lakes and is home to a huge population of birds, and walking along the shores one can also see hippos. Colobus and vervet monkeys and baboons are also common.

You may take a boat on the lake, to discover it more close.

Day 2: Bird watchers may like to take an early morning trip to the fish market, and get really close to a variety of species that are very used to human company.  We may as well spend the morning relaxing in the hotel grounds. We will set back to Addis Ababa mid-afternoon to arrive in the early evening hours.

EASYGO 110 Yirgalem – 2 days

Yirgalem is about 50 km from Awassa.  This is coffee country, and the scenery is extraordinarily lush.

There are more than 100 bird species recorded in the area, and on our walks we can see hyena, jackals, Colobus and vervet monkeys. 

The Aregash Lodge, your place of stay here, is based on the architecture of the very attractive traditional Sidamo house. 

Day 1: With a stop at Ziway for lunch and visiting Lakes Shala & Abijata, we would reach Aregash Lodge in early afternoon. Visit the environs. Overnight.

Day 2: Drive back to Addis Ababa arriving early evening. However, this tour can also be extended by a day.

Efficient and friendly staff – Efficace et personnel très sympathique

“One of the only companies that can organize the Erta Ale – Danakil tour in 3 days because Avraham, one of their driver and our excellent guide, is able to cross the no man’s land between these two points. Well maintained vehicles and excellent service. Un des seuls tours opérateurs qui peut organiser le tour Erta Ale – Danakil en trois jours car un de leurs chauffeurs, Avraham, un super guide, est un des seules à connaître les pistes entre ses deux points. Véhicules en bon état et excellent service…”

“Excellent 4wd hire”

I hired a 4wd for two weeks from Horizon in order to visit the Omo Valley. The vehicle was as described, in good condition with working ac. My driver (Joseph) was extremely hardworking and patient, despite putting him through some very long driving hours and uncomfortable conditions. He had an excellent knowledge of all the places I wanted to visit, spoke reasonable English and helped a lot with local translation and negotiation. The price was very competitive and the owner (Yenealem) included camping equipment with no extra charge. I would totally recommend this company for 4wd hire.
