Lake Langano

Langano, Ethiopia

At the Horacallo Bridge it is possible to turn left along a track which leads to the lake. There are good camping spots here along the northern shore. However, the main track to the lake is at about 210 and 215 kms leading left to the Wabe Shebele and Bekele Mola Hotels beach and camping grounds respectively.

The soft brown waters of Langano are set against the blue backdrop of the Arsi Mountains soaring to 4,000 meters. A few birds make Langano their home, but this resort is less for the nature lover than the sportsman and sun worshipper. Here you can water-ski and sail, swim or bask in the blazing sun on the slopping sandy beach. European food is served in the hotel restaurant but the tilapia is good and cooking freshly caught fish over the camp fire has its own special attraction. The local Oromo women are often prepared to sell jewelers or utensils; copper bracelets or brass; bead necklaces and cowries shell decorated milk pots.
