Lake Langano is a good three hours (250 km) drive south from Addis. The lake is one of a series running south down the Ethiopian Rift Valley. Bordering the Eastern shore of Lake Langano is East Langano Nature Reserve, a beautiful lakeside forest and home to a variety of birds and mammals. The area is a delight to explore on foot or on horseback.
The forests are mainly podocarpus and wild fig trees, full of Colobus Monkeys and over 300 species of birds, 7 of which are endemic to Ethiopia. There are also numerous wild mammals recorded, although in low populations – due to seasonal traditional hunting of the forest by local communities. On the western shores of Lake Langano, the lakeside beaches are marginally better than the eastern.
