Bale Mountain Lodge

Bale Mountain Lodge opened in 2014 and was created by a British couple that are somewhat paving the way for Ethiopian eco-luxury accommodation. Excellent food and service await you during your stay in the awe-inspiring Bale Mountain National Park.

Bale Mountains, Ethiopia
Bale Mountain Lodge
  • Spot endemic mammal species such as the endangered Ethiopian wolf on the Senette Plateau. There are only 450 left worldwide

  • Endemic bird species including the Hibans lark

  • Fabulous views of the mountains from all rooms

  • Explore the diverse areas and different vegetation types which make up the Bale Mountain National Park

Located in the mysterious Harenna Forest, the thatch, stone and wood cottages of Bale Mountain Lodge are in-keeping with the local aesthetic but also high quality and reminiscent of a mountain chalet. One cottage is also fully accessible for wheelchair users.

The lodge is keen to reduce its carbon footprint through as many eco-friendly means as possible, diverting a portion of the local river to power the lodge through hydro-electric power which is filtered as a source of water for guests.

The Mountain Lodge is an ideal base from which to embark on guided walks, cultural and historical visits, bird watching, fishing and game drives to catch a glimpse of some native wildlife including the endangered Ethiopian wolf. The lodge are also able to arrange day trips to the southern part of the National Park so that guests can visit villages which very rarely see tourists. We recommend spending at least two nights here to fully appreciate your spectacular surroundings.
