For a relaxing day out of the city,try a trip out to the nearby lakes of Bishoftu. Several resorts offer day packages including buffet lunch and lake boat rides or kayaking at very reasonable prices

We visited Addis Ababa for 3 days. After searching in the internet we decided to have day tour to Lake Bishoftu. We hired a car with English Speaking guide for $150 for 2 of us me and my wife. The lake was a crater of a volcanic eruption, so it is not big, but beautiful. Our trip was safe and enjoyable.

Debre Zeit or Bishoftu is one of the closest attractions on the outskirts of Addis Ababa in the south east direction. I had hired a guide for the day for 90 USD per person, which included car and driver. Explored Lake Hora, Bishoftu lake and Babogaya.

Maars are huge craters created by volcanic explosions, later filled by water. In Debre Zeyit (Bishoftu) there many of these lakes: some are in the town (Bishoftu, Hora) and easily reached by the main road. One of them, probably the most beautiful, is located a few kilometers southwest of the town and can be reached by either 4x4 car or on foot: it is the Green Lake, named after the colour of its water. Sometimes you can see dozens of flamingos on the surface of the lake: really a beautiful picture.
