Doho Lodge


Doho Lodge is a wonderful welcoming and rustic lakeside lodge located next to the Aledeghi Wildlife Reserve, 22 km northwest of Awash Town and 248 km east of Addis Ababa.

Nature and relaxation are exactly what this lodge has to offer with hot springs to relax in, wildlife surrounding the lodge and in Aledeghi Wildlife Reserve, sunsets over the lake, and embers from the log fire to ease the evening chill.

The rooms are traditional and basic, however the setting, nearby wildlife reserve and delicious restaurant food make this lodge one not to miss out on whilst in Ethiopia.
You can enjoy your breakfast with a traditional Ethiopian coffee in front of the restaurant on the lakefront or with a view of the natural palm forest.
