The Lodge is situated near Debre Zeit, a town at 47 km south of Addis Abeba (Ethiopia).
We are on the border of Babogaya lake, which is an ancient volcano 1km2 wide, filled with clear water in which it is possible to swim or to go around with a kayak.
To arrive at the Babogaya Lake Viewpoint Lodge:
By taxi from the airport:
Our taxi can pick you up for 25 dollar anywhere in Addis, 24H/24H, also in the airport.
Many of our customers arrive by plane in Addis Ababa and come directly ( it takes 90 minutes) to our lodge.
Others are relaxing at the end of their trip in Ethiopia some days in our lodge before our taxi takes them at 8 pm directly to the airport for their international night flight to Europe.
We send you picture of our taximan and his phone, so you will meet easily.
Take the external ringroad by the GORO road until you enter the Highway in TULU DIMTU ( you pay 15 birr). Take the first exit called DUKUM or Debre Zeit North. Ones you are on the old road, follow 8 km until you see a NOC fuelstation on your LEFT side ( there is before another NOC on the right). 100 m more, there is a road to the left. Follow this road 5 km in the direction of Kiruftu. Don't take the last road right to Kiruftu but continue 50 m and you see the indication of the Viewpoint Lodge on your left side.
Google maps is another easy way to reach the Lodge.
Parking: A location closer to the lodge is available for free.
By public transport:
Take in Addis a minibus to the Akaki busstation. There you take a minibus to the busstation in Debre Zeit. A three-wheeled Indian BAJAJ may take you to the lodge for 60 birr.
