We had a wonderful stay in Babagoya Viewpoint Lodge. It was a lovely few days away from the hustle and bustle of Addis Ababa. The resort has fabulous animals around - Six large tortoises roam around, rabbits you can feed, and so much fascinating birdlife (Jan can tell you more about the birds around the lake). Our room was a sort of treehouse which was very fun and had a stunning view of the lake when you wake up in the morning. All the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, and it was very easy for us to arrange trips nearby through the lodge - we went to Green Crater Lake by bajaj (tuk-tuk) with a driver from the lodge. The food was good, and the reception area was a great place to relax and take in the views. I would recommend Babagoya Viewpoint Lodge to anyone wanting something with more of a homemade feel than a hotel, hidden away in the trees around the beautiful Bishoftu Guda lake.
