Community Hike through the Wof Washa Forest
The highlands around Ankober and Debre Birhan are known for some unique endemic birds. And in the green forests you can find also a variety of plants and animals. Beside this, consider that you're on the edge of the Great African Rift Valley, so you'll have wonderful views into the lowlands - and all so close to Addis Ababa!
You will be accompanied by one of our experienced guides (English speaking, but other languages are available as well) and depart for a three days trip to the Wof Washa Forest which lies betweek Debre Birhan and Ankober, high above the Great African Rift Valley. The perfect short escape for a minimum of two nights with overnights in simple but clean community guesthouses.
You wander along shepherds' trails along the escarpment with amazing views into Afar Triangle far below your feet. The escarpment offers not only great views but also walking and hiking opportunities on trails of different levels. You'll waalk by local farmers' villages and can stop for a bit for some kollo, the roasted grain, or a glass of kosso araki, the local liquor.
Trips can be easily extended by a few days, in this case you'll stay in other community guesthouses. Or you can add a night at Ankober Palace Lodge or exytend your trip to Awash National Park. Just get in touch with us and we'll assist you planning the trip.
