Arba Minch

Spend one or two days enjoying the varied wildlife and nature surrounding Arba Minch.

Our tours include a visit to the forty springs, where you will see the source of the town’s water, baboons and a lush forest. Bring your swimming costume and enjoy a cooling dip in a natural pond.

Arba Minch is home to two Rift Valley lakes separated by forest covered hills (known locally as the bridge of god). Take a boat trip on Chamo lake to see wild crocodiles, hippopotami, pelicans, flamingoes and local fishing boats. On our fishing trip you will be surprised at your catch of tiger fish, tilapia and many more.

Drive across the bridge of god to experience 514 square kilometres of African savannah containing wild zebras, gazelles, swaynes hartebeest, kudus, birds and stunning views of both lakes.

Visit the local day market to buy coffee, weaving materials and grains. At the night market, join the sellers from neighbouring villages and enjoy local food and drink.

Save time in your tour for an Ethiopian traditional coffee ceremony in a family home.

Our tour will be designed especially for you and includes transport, guide, entrance fees and hotel booking.
