A stylish and welcoming base from which to savour the Bale Mountains experience

Enjoy first class hospitality in a picture-perfect setting and seek the endangered Ethiopian wolf

Rural Ethiopia’s finest lodge, Bale Mountain Lodge is owner-run by Guy and Yvonne Levene. How they managed to create this wonderful accommodation in remote and beautiful Harenna Forest, is anyone’s guess – what quickly becomes clear is that they have put their hearts and souls into their efforts to create something truly special.

There are 3 stone cottages near the Lodge, 5 tucked in the forest (all of these with wood burning stoves) and a 'friends and family house' with 3 bedrooms - for people travelling together with a central sitting room with open fire.

The large, stylish rooms have comfortable Menyetta beds, en-suite bathrooms and each is equipped with a wood-burning stove as nights can be chilly. The ‘tree house’ room is raised with spectacular views into evergreen forest with bamboo groves. The main dining, lounge and bar area are in a tukul with enormous windows designed to give guests the chance to take in maximum views of the magnificent surrounding forests. Guests are invited to dine together if they wish, or, are more than welcome to dine separately. There is a set menu for lunch and dinner.

There is a selection of marked trails within varying distances of the lodge, taking guests to some beautiful locations. The lodge is also well located to access the Sanetti Plateau, a 45 minute drive away.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
