About The Safari Lodge, Adama

Set in lush tropical gardens, The Safari Lodge is an oasis favoured by residents of Addis and tourists alike. Adama, also known as Nasret, is less than 100km from Addis and is a popular weekend getaway for residents of the city.

The 17 en-suite suites all include a living room furnished in contemporary style. The Luxury Tower can be taken as a honeymoon loft, a VIP suite or for a group of friends. The restaurant serves Ethiopian and international cuisine, and the two cocktail bars offer a selection of tasty treats. The two conference halls accommodate up to 80 pax, and are equipped with large screen TV, video, DVD player, and projector. The swimming pool is surrounded by a sunbathing deck and shaded by fruit trees. Weddings and parties can be arranged.

Adama Horse Safaris, based at the lodge, offer rides for beginners, intermediate and experienced riders, traversing an abundance of routes. Short rides, multi-day trips and picnics can all be arranged, giving riders the chance to experience African wildlife and scenery beyond the reach of vehicles.

Local attractions include the local churches around Adama, the hot baths and natural springs in Sodore, and nearby parks with wildlife and birds. The lodge supports the Bright Millennium Campaign, which runs a number of community development projects including aiding employment, supporting local arts and culture and promoting Ethiopia.
