About Us

Awash Falls Lodge is a perfect destination to refresh oneself in a peaceful and clean environment. Its proximity to Addis Ababa and Adama/Nazret Cities along with the New Express Road and the rapidly constructed railway are also advantages for tourists to spend at least the weekends in the Lodge. 

Awash Falls Lodge preserves traditional inspiration in addition to the different nature, cultures and traditions found in the area. It also serves as a stopover and/or destination site for travellers to and from Eastern Ethiopia, including the ancient Harar City, Erta-Ale active volcano, Dallol Depression in the Afar Region, Dire Dawa, etc... 

We recommend guests to take a break from the routine activities that you spend on your working hours. Our services are very complementary with overnight low pitched music by Awash Falls and the natural mineral hot spring baths/showers at our new Doho Lodge (www.doholodge.com)

The Awash Falls Lodge (AFL) is located in the most southwestern limit of an ancient conservation area, the Awash National Park, the only nearest Park to the capital Addis Ababa, with 205 km in the East. The location of the Lodge in the surrounding fantastic diversity of nature and related entertainment activities provided by the Lodge has been called by many as 'The Little Paradise'.

News & Events

 Doho Lodge and Hot Springs is actively serving local and international tourists.

This new Lodge is a sister company of the Awash Falls Lodge. This new site has already been opened for visitors. The site is located at the northern edge of Awash National Park along the expanse of the Awash Hot Springs, 48 km from Awash Falls Lodge. The area accommodates immense attractions.

The Awash Hot Springs:  Located at the northern border of the Park (41 km from Awash Falls Lodge) at the base of the Fentale cliffs are the fascinating Fil wuha Hot Springs. It is one of the wonders of the area and affords the visitor the opportunity to swim in about 40 - 50oC water. Aside from the hot springs and their picturesque pools, Doum Palms surround the hot springs and attract a wide range of aquatic birds and fish-eating Nile crocodiles. At dawn and dusk it is also possible to observe Defassa waterbuck in the hot spring marsh. While driving through the thick acacia bush to get to the hot springs one can also see a number of large mammal species including Lesser kudu, Salt's dik-dik, warthogs, and bird species such as Helmeted guinea fowl. The area is also home to the Hamadryas baboon. These special animals are regularly seen by visitors’ area as they regularly forage here during daylight hours, returning to the cliffs at night, where they are protected from predators.
