both city and state. There are almost 80 nationalities speaking in various 80 languages. . This is actually the
grassland-biotic community. From the lowest area around the Bole International Airport amid the southern edge to the northern part of the city with more than 3,000 meters in the Entoto Mountains, Addis Ababa is in easy access to various parts of Ethiopia. The city lies at the foot of Mount Entoto, and is home to Addis Ababa University.

Addis/ADD- Langano

Drive to Langano, en route visit Lake Zway, shelters a variety of water birds. Lake Zeway is surrounded by the blue volcanic hills, 165km south of Addis Ababa, and covering a massive 4252km is Lake Ziway, the largest of the northern group of rift valley lakes. It’s an attractive enough place, but its best known for its bird life. While Pelicans, Black Egrets, Saddle bill and Yellow bill Storks are all seen here, as well as a variety of Kingfishers and Waterfowl. The Lake is also home to five little volcanic islands, of which once boasted medieval churches. Tullu Gudo, 14km from Ziway and the largest island, is still home to three monasteries. The other Lakes, Abijjata Shalla West of Langano lay the twin lakes of Abijjata Shalla, which form part of the 8872km lake Abijjata Shalla national park.

Identical twins these lakes are not. Shalla’s 4102km surface sits within a collapsed volcanic caldera and depths exceed 260m in some areas, while Abijjata’s highly alkaline waters rest in a shallow pan no more than 14m in depth. Despite their natural beauty, these lakes are best known for their bird life. At Abijjata, never more than 10meters deep greater and lesser Flamingos abound, along with white-necked Cormorants, several species of Herons, Storks, Spoonbills, Ibises, African Ducks, Gulls, and Terns. During the northern winter thousands of Asiatic and European Ducks and Waders migrate to Abijjata’s shores. Lake Shalla is well known for its large colony of great White Pelicans (most important colony for this species in Africa). In front of Abijjata
Shalla Lake, there is another Lake Langano. Brown and copper colored lake Langano beckons. Set against the 4000m blue Arsi Mountains is a dream comes true for many brits. The clean and is one Ethiopia’s lake free from bilharzias; so it is good for swimming, aquatic sports. The birding is excellent on some of the more remote sections of this 3002km lake, and over 300 species have been recorded, including the Ethiopian cliff Swallow. Best for Sunbathing, camping, and bird watching. Along the shores cliff dwellers and acacia inhabiting birds set up a noisy chatter, including fan-tailed Ravens and Hornbills, most notably Hemp rich’s Hornbill. Drive back to the capital (Addis Ababa)
