Located in Ethiopia’s beautiful and verdant Great Rift Valley, Paradise Lodge Arbaminch is an award-winning eco-lodge.
Accommodations consist of charming private bamboo huts. The single rooms come with a twin sized bed, locally crafted Cordia Africana furniture, and an en suite bathroom. The twin suites include two beds and a view of either the lake or the garden. While the family rooms feature a queen bed and a twin sized bed, a sitting area, and bamboo furniture. Honeymooners love the king suites with their plush king-sized beds. However, the ultimate luxury can be found in the two-story Presidential Suite. On the ground floor, there is an entrance hall and bedroom with two twin beds. While the second floor contains the master bedroom with a king-sized bed. Every room enjoys a private veranda.
The lodge is located in the lush Great Rift Valley. The city of Arba Minch was established as the regional capital in 1960. Near the lodge, Nechisar National Park encompasses 127,000-acres of verdant and game-rich wilderness with wide swaths of thick bushland and wooded valleys. Within the park can be found the Bridge of God, an isthmus between Lake Abaya and Lake Chamo whose lakes house a significant fish population including Nile perch. Other animals found within the park include plains zebra, Grant’s gazelle, dik-dik, greater kudu, bushbuck, bushpig, vervet monkey, and black-backed jackal. The park is an important habitat for many birds especially waterfowl such as kingfishers, storks, pelicans, flamingoes, and fish eagles.
