This short overnight tour is a great chance to get out of the capital and see some wildlife in the Awash National Park – located 225 km east of Addis Ababa.

The park, which takes its name from the Awash River, covers an area of 827 square kilometers and stretches around 30km east to west and a little less from north to south. Once you arrive in the park, you will have two short game drives which will give you a chance to see the local wildlife, such as oryx, baboons, kudu, warthogs, gazelles and colubus monkeys.

On day two, we will stop off a the Sodere natural hot springs on our way back to Addis Ababa from Awash.

Alex was amazing! My two friends and I arrived in Gondor nervous and confused, but Alex met us exactly where we planned and helped us with everything from hotels to tours to local hang outs. He made us feel as though we was a good friend rather than a customer. He was more than happy to take us to whatever we wanted to do and clearly knew an incredible amount of information about Gondor and Ehiopia in general. Later in the trip he happened to be Addis Ababa at the same time and happily showed us around. Alex is super friendly and genuinely wants visitors to have an amazing experience in Ethiopia! I highly recommend traveling with him!!!
