Evangadi Campsite: "Out of Africa" Turmi Hotel Tip by sachara
Turmi Hotels: 2 reviews and 2 photos
In Turmi in the far southwest of Ethiopia we stayed at the Evangadi Campsite. Because of the extreme heat and dust we decided to hire a fixed tent with a roof, which protected the tent against the burning sun.
To increase the ''Out of Africa'' feeling we opened the backside of our tent to catch some breeze and for a view at the savannah and bush behind. Though the only animals we saw, passing by our tent, were goats.
At the campsite were toilets, french style and showers, but there was a shortage of water.
We had to cook ourselves, but they just started to build a restaurant at the site.
Unique Qualities: Despite the dust, the heat and the shortage of water it was one of the most romantic places to stay during our trip in Southern Ethiopia. So it was worth the 200 birr pro tent.
Comparison: about average
Directions: About one KM east of Turmi. You can make reservations in Addis Abeba.
Price: less than US$20
