Abiyata Shala National Park

With beautiful savannahs, acacia forests, thorny scrub and Euphorbias, the Abiyata-shala park is situated in the Rift Valley created to protect both a beautiful landscape and species of birds inhabiting the area.

Two salt water lakes, Abiyata and Shala separated by a rocky barrier cover more than half of the park and between them lies Mount Fike.

Lake Abiyata is shallow rich in fish, attracting numerous birds to its shores making it an ideal place for bird watching, particularly for viewing Pink Flamingos.

Lake Shala further south was formed in a crater of a volcano and is the deepest lake in the rift valley. Volcanic islands dot its surface and are surrounded by large acacia and Euphorbia forest and numerous hot springs that release boiling hot water and steam geysers. These waters are highly valued for their therapeutic properties, especially for the relief of rheumatism.

Harar

The city of mystery, it has been referred to as the Timuktu of the east, it is considered one of the holy cities of the Islamic world with its ninety nine mosques and its glorious past of spreading Islam. Harar is one of the most impressive historic destinations with its remoteness and ancient history as part of the long and colorful existence of Ethiopia.

The ancient walled city is not spectacular in itself, the walls being quite modest and more for defense than anything else. Its mosques are small and simple. Its grandeur penetrates the heart more than the sight. Harar gazes towards the orient, and the rein lies the simple beauty of its ambience. Its narrow and windelling cobbled alleyways, immaculate whites, Islamic greens, sky blues, ochres, the slow harmonic rythem, draw in the eye. Time is at the service of daily life, the autmosphere is clear, the sun bright, blessing the conversations of the inhabitants within the shade. This city is reminiscent of a world lost in childhood dreams, dreams that would carry us to far off lands full of mystery.

Gondar

The imperial city of Gondar took its name from the cushtic word “gon” (great) and the semetic word “dar” (city) to form the word Great city. One tradition suggests that its name was derived from gon eder, whose translation is “sleep on your side.”This arises from the story that after a long fight between two brothers, one of them exclaimed to the other: Gon eder! “Sleep on your side, on your ears!”, i.e. in peace.

The city was built on a volcanic plain surrounded by forests and crossed by two rivers which from a gateway to the south, Lake tana. For some two hundred years, Gondar was the center of the Ethiopia of the Neguse Negiste.
