Brief Outline of the 2 Day Itinerary
Heading south down the Rift Valley we turn east at Mojo for Awash and the Afar Region. We pass Lake Beseka and enter the Awash National Park. On arrival we could take a leisurely walk passing through the patch of natural forest at the northern end of Elalaytu hill. On our way, we may encounter a family of wart hog, scurrying past with their tails erect like antennae, nervous dik dik, vervet monkeys (particularly around the project buildings) and mongoose. Less frequently seen are oryx, gerenuk and lesser kudu. There’ll be plenty of birds on the way; you may well see the following species: Black Scrub Robin, Somali Golden Breasted Robin, Nile Valley Sunbird, Lineated Pytilia, Yellow Throated Serin, Sombre Chat and Arabian Bustard. Entering the springs and advancing to the middle it is possible to stand on top of the springs and have a kind of gravel Jacuzzi, as the hot (but not uncomfortably hot) water swirls around your legs. From there we can cut back to the lodge.
The next day we could do an early morning game drive - returning to the main road and proceeding north for a couple of kilometers, we turn right and approach the Alledeghi Plains, where at the right time of day (early morning or late afternoon) a variety of plains animals can be seen, including zebra, gerenuk, ostrich etc. leave after lunch back to Addis Ababa.
