Hotels in Ethiopia
As a country still very much off the tourist trail, the selection of lodges in Ethiopia is small but they all have one thing in common: beautiful views. Our favourite is Bale Mountain Lodge, set in the heart of Bale Mountain National Park nestled amongst lush forest and with sweeping panoramas of the surrounding mountains from each of the eight cottages.
