We stayed here en route to the Bale Mountains for one night. This hotel is set in a tropical environment around a pool. The rooms are spacious very dark and the bathroom facilities are very basic. Mosquito netting is around the bed and all windows have screens on them. The bar facility around the pool and the upstairs restaurant are... More

It is a third time to have this bad experience with Safari Lodge in Adama. When you made a reservation over the phone they will say “no problem you are booked” but when you get there your room is already given to somebody else. I guess they will give your room to somebody who could give them a tip ….i... More

I stayed in the Safari Lodge for two nights with a friend. The lodge is a tranquil oasis with plenty of lush mango and avocado trees located in the center of the town. We were warmly welcomed by the very attentive staff who strived to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The room with outdoor veranda was clean, spacious... More

I have been going to this lodge with my girlfriend and it has been our choice since then. It has a nice swimming pool and the compound is full of nature. The rooms are quite nice but they need some upgrade and maintenance.

Began as one of the best in Adama, but it has aged without much upkeep. Food is good and service is good. Slow WiFi but nice place for an afternoon break. Has a pool. Rooms also need a facelift. Nice lawn and trees.

What do I mean by that? For those travelers unaccustomed to Ethiopia's sometimes challenging environment, The Safari Lodge can provide an oasis of calm and tranquility in an ocean of mango trees and luxuriant foliage!! Horse rides for the kids too. Great food, cocktails and beautifully spacious rooms make for an all round great experience of luxury in the heart... More

We stopped here on the way from Awash to Addis. This hotel is quiet and has free WiFi- good start! We had lunch here and we were well impressed with the food quality. We had a few vegetarian dishes including shiro (25 min wait) and all were tasty. Price was reasonable, service good, really can't fault anything. For Ethiopian standards... More

This place I like it because they have bigger rooms than what the rest of hotels in the town can offer. The place is highly dense with fruit trees(mango trees) wich makes it look out of town somewhere in African jungle but you rarely get any juice at the lodge. The waiter with an eye glass is more energetic to... More

Adama (Nazret) is not a city for tourists, but if you're there on business and want some "touristy feeling" the Safari Lodge is a good option. It sits a short distance away from the main road, and the trucks can definitely be heard at nights. There are some mosquitoes and if your lucky a monkey or two. The pool is... More

I have been around the world and I have just one hotel, this place can compete with. This is Raffles in Singapore. Safari Lodge is calm, restful and nice place. Not to much people, nice employees and good food. Please try their pizzas. Wonderful, you can note have it in another place in Africa. The pool is nice, both outside... More
