On the lakefront, the eco-lodge Hara Langano offers a relaxed atmosphere and a wide range of activities on the lake.
The 32 en-suite rooms, known locally as gojo, are dotted around the attractive grounds, and most have views of the lake. The restaurant serves Ethiopian cuisine and has a selection of international dishes. The conference room accommodates up to 60 pax, and has Wifi. Spa treatments including massage are on offer. The landscaped grounds are surrounded by an ancient forest that’s home to a number of endemic species of birds.
The lodge is eco-friendly; it operates with solar power, and uses water saving measures. It also supports the local community by training and employing staff from the local area, and supporting local schools. The restaurant buys fresh vegetables from local farmers, as well as serving fish from the lake.
The lodge has a number of boats for hire. Activities include boat trips on the lake, water skiing, kayaking, sailing, and fishing for carp, catfish and tilapia. Mountain biking, horse riding and walking around the shores of the lake can also be arranged, as can visits to local tribal villages. Bird watching, hippo watching, and visits to Abijata National Park are all available.
