Hara Langano Lodge

The Ethiopian Rift Valley, Ethiopia

Our accommodation of choice at Lake Langano, the recently re-branded and refurbished Hara Langano is on the eastern side of the lake and is a perfect place at which to stop after trips to Bale or Southern Ethiopia. 

The 10 rooms all have en-suite bathrooms and are spaced sufficiently far apart to create a feel of privacy and seclusion.

The new managment has rehabilitated a section of the lakeshore/ beach with a view to attracting back some of the lake's resident hippos and this has worked well. Good meals are offered in the open-air dining room/restaurant. 

The lodge has its own kitchen garden where produce is cultivated; a tree nursery for replenishing the surrounding woodland and they have a workshop employing local staff to support the hotel and develop skills. Management has worked closely with the local school, Kimphe, where they have provided clean water and staff accommodation. Water supplies are shared with local families.
Activities on offer include boat trips. fishing and birding walks. There is also hippo watching and one of the local birding guides is widely praised as being among the best in Ethiopia. 

Accommodation Reviews

Overall holiday satisfaction: excellent. Will return. 

We had the very best guide. We would want to use him again. He was exceptional. 

Maribela Hotel, Lalibela: an incredible experience with amazing staff and food excellent.

Simien Lodge: a wonderful place. Lovely. 

Bale Mountains Lodge: really enjoyable stay - lovely accommodation and very friendly host.

Sabana Beach Resort: great bird watching. 

We have had a fantastic time - deeply enhanced by our incredible guide Zee and the drivers. Very knowledgeable and fun to be with, and attentive to the point of making us feel like royalty. Our guide went above expectations with the information he gcave us and the little extras - nothing was too much trouble. The best guide we have ever had. Excellent staff.

'The start of the trip was Timket. What a stroke of luck we got there. It was a fascinating and unique experience. Well done to Rainbow for spotting it.  

Staff of all the hotels were friendly, helpful and invariably tried their best. Full marks to them. Our tour guide was excellent and really made our trip that much more successful. He was VERY knowledgeable; he was patient and nothing was too much trouble. 

Local guides were a mixed bag. But our tour leader knew everything anyway so problem solved. The local guides in the [Simien] mountains and at Lake Langano were fantastic; knowledgeable and enthusiastic. 

All drivers were excellent and highly capable. 

Hara Langano extention: wonderful local guide and super setting. Birdlife wonderful and hippos just yards from the beach!
