4 Days Bale Mountains Itinerary
Day 1 | Addis Ababa - Goba 447 km/ ~ 8 hr
After breakfast we pick you from your hotel for a full day drive to the Bale Mountains. En route we stop at Lake Ziway to watch the many water birds at its shore. The headquarters of the Park are situated in Dinsho where we finalize some formalities before we proceed to Goba.
Day 2 | Goba (visit Bale Mountains NP)
Spend the day exploring the Bale Mountains. This is going to be a day of extraordinary scenery as we search for the endemic species of which many are found in this area. Among them the mountain Nyala, Menelik's bushbuck, Ethiopian wolf and many birds.
Day 3 | Goba or visit Sof Omar caves
if the weather permites, we spend the Day Exploring the Sof Omar cave, 100 km/ 2,5 hr to the east. Here we admire what is believed the largest network of limestone caves in Africa. The Web River flows through the cave system and when the river is to high the caves are not accessible. In that case we explore more of the Bale Mountains.
Day 4 | Goba - Addis Ababa, 414 km/ ~8 hr
leave the mountainous area behind and travel down to the bottom of the Rift Valley by a different, very scenic road, via Asela.
Late afternoon we drop you at your hotel in Addis Ababa.
(About 115 km (2,5 hr) before Addis Ababa we pass the hot spring resort of Sodore which could make a nice relaxing overnight break if you have another day to spent)
