Description - Hostel

We are a cultural Eco-lodge with local style Konso huts, cozy and fitted out with comfy beds, furniture and mosquito nets. We have dry composting toilets, solar shower and solar power.

We also have our own organic farm producing fresh organic vegetables, salads, fruits and we serve a selection of delicious dishes in our restaurant. We are a quiet and relaxing oasis of green tranquility, where you can escape the hastle of budget travel in Ethiopia to recover your energy for a while before going down to the Omo valley, on to Kenya or on the way up to Addis from Moyale (at the Kenya border).

We also offer the following services:
  Trekking and cultural activities - lead by local guides and involving local community members to include them in our activities. Explore the fascinating local Konso culture, get an in-depth view of the community of this unique southern Ethiopian nation - villages, crafts, rituals, music and dance.
  Volunteering - on our Konso schools project and working on our organic farm. We charge $50 per week for volunteering, which covers food and accommodation as well as activities. There is a discount for long stay (over 12 weeks).
  Permaculture Design Training: Our Permaculture Design Courses (PDCs) are a 72h residential course (10 days in length). We charge $700 including food and accommodation in the lodge for the duration. We run PDCs every second month in the first 2 weeks of the month.

We also run the Permaculture in Kosno Schools Project, working in local schools to promote community food security.

How to get there

We are at the crossroads of the ways to Addis Ababa (500km) Myoale - Kenya border - via Yabello (200km) and the Omo Valley. We are 85km south of Arbaminch, 100km west of Yabello and 150km east of Jinka.
We are 0. 5km out of town on the main road to arbaminch. Go down to the bottom of the hill and we are on the left hand side. (Or alternatively get out of the bus 1 minute before reaching Konso and we are on the right hand side - opposite the turning to Gumaide)

minibus from Arbaminch every day. Busses from Yabello monday and thursday. We can rent you our car also for going to Omo valley or take you back to addis

Nearest airport: Arbaminch, 85km
