Returned to Ethiopia for a holiday and made sure that I visited Dorze Lodge. It is still a beautiful place with great views of the two lakes. I was pleased to see that it is still a community based project and the local communities are benefitting from their involvement with the lodge. I enjoyed visiting the local villages and joining in with the local dancing in the evening around the camp fire.Tsehai is very welcoming and speaks excellent english. Next time I go to Ethiopia, I am planning to go trekking with the local guides. Visit the website to see more www.dorzelodge.com.
