Metehara/Beseka Lake

Close to the Awash NP is the Metehara/Beseka lake, a unique environment where black lava rock has spilled out from the nearby Fentale volcano about 200 years ago. This barren, hostile basalt is the haunt of the endangered and localized very drab-coloured, Sombre Rock Chat. Many aquatic birds and crocodiles can also be seen.

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.
