Ambo, Wonchi Crater Lake and Wolliso

EQST 009 Ambo, Wonchi Crater Lake and Wolliso


Duration: Two days

Location: Ambo and Wolliso

From Wonchi crater lake we could continue to Wolliso, to the Negash Lodge. This was the site of the old Ghion Hotel – there is a natural hot spring which feeds a swimming pool as well as the water in the rooms, marvelous grounds with good bird life and Colobus and Vervet monkeys.

The owner has totally revamped the old hotel building, which has enormous baths in the rooms, and added as number of bungalows in traditional styles, Sidamo style and tukuls.

We could drive straight to Negash Lodge taking the Jimma Road out of Addis Ababa – it is only 125 km and leaving early we would be there mid-morning.
