The three settlements are located almost five kilometers apart. Limat most probably was the first settlement that was developed before the declaration of Arbaminch as a capital of the province.
arba minch the main city in the south
This is the main city before heading further south to the omo valley, the Durze tribe live nearby and you also have lake chamo close by which is worth a visit if you like to see crocodiles and hippo’s, but you will need to hire a guide and a boat for this.
Excellent for hipo and crocodile observation
There isn’t so many animal same as the others in Africa in this national park but different kind of birds can be found. On the other hand there are so many crocodile and hippos in the lake and observation and taking photos is suitable.
Dorze village tour
You most see this tribe’s unbelievable life style, this is the place where we recommend to travelers they don’t have to miss, the landscape, the culture, the food, etc
Really remarkable dorze huts, surprisingly large as they home animals, as well as a kitchen and sleeping area. Tours are excellent they show you around the huts, the men weaving, the women preparing enset bread for fermentation and then for making a pancake. We were fed some enset bread pancake, it isn’t s distinctive taste at all (completely different) .
What an experience
Whilst wondering around town, we were stopped by a man named Kebe asking if he could help us. We had a list of items we needed to buy and he helped us with them all. The next day, we jumped in his tuk tuk and he took us up in to the mountains to the Dorze Village. He introduced us…
A must see
Getting there is a treat. The rough roads winds up and around mountains. Lovely views of valleys and more mountains. The views from the Tsehay Lodge are stunning (360 degrees). When getting closer to Hayzo, market stalls appear selling woven fabrics, scarves, heads, etc. Women spin. Men weave – also at the roadside, for sake of tourists.
