The Lalibela Hudad is an eco-retreat lodge that overlooks the town of Lalibela in Northern Ethiopia. Due to recent road development seventy percent of the way up can be covered by car, but the remaining part of the journey is travelled by mule or hiking on foot. The lodge is set on a silent and private 10-hectare site at an altitude of 3,300 m. Air doesn’t get much cleaner than this, and there is a lovely feeling of seclusion and peacefulness. The AboChagula Reserve surrounds the lodge presenting breathtaking sights and sounds throughout your stay.
Accommodation is offered in stone-and-thatch Tukuls, which are simple yet comfortable, with shared drop-toilets and hot showers. Each Tukul can accommodate up to three guests. Guests are supplied with warm blankets but are advised to bring warm clothing as the highlands are characteristically cold at night.
The Plateau Café by reception serves out freshly cooked light meals throughout the day. Alfresco eating is a must at the Hudad, with cliff-edge meals, evening bonfire barbeques, wildlife picnics, or private meals by your Tukul Suite. The food we serve is fresh, organic, delicious, locally sourced. Our menu has been carefully designed to blend a fusion of local and international tastes.
Enjoy the rising sun as endemic gelada baboons’ play nearby; at a distance terraced farms and ancient villages mesmerize onlookers though out the day. The tukuls have been built to surround a large area that is visited almost daily by a large troupe of gelada baboons. Settle into one of our wildlife lookout dens and become part of the tribe. Baboons are not the plateau’s only inhabitants; a wide variety of stunning wildlife awaits visitors. There have been rare sightings of mountain lions, Ethiopian wolves and Hamadryas baboons from the Hudad.
