Day 1: This trip is a good compromise for those who want to have some sightseeing and some fun riding. From Addis we will ride east through Asela, Dodola and Shashemene, the un-official capital of the Ethiopian Rastafari community. We overnigh in Yirga Alem, in the Aregash Lodge located in the middle of a beautiful forest where hyenas can be heard and spotted when night falls.
Day 2: You can visit the surroundings of the Forest in the morning before heading north, back to Addis. We will have lunch on the shores of Lake Langano at the beautiful Sabana Resort. Here the distinctive African Fish Eagle can be seen flying the skies where its cry fills the air. We will visit the Abyata-Shala Lakes National Park. Lake Shala is an exceptionally beautiful stretch of water, with several hot sulphurous springs that bubble up by the shore and flow into the lake. The beaches of both lakes are saline and unstable thus we will not be able to venture too close but the ride is magnificent and at a safe distance you will see thousands of flamingos riming the blue bays of the lakes with pink.
