Top Descriptions

The tour offered by the Dorze people might be a little off the cuff, but it’s definitely interesting to be able to explore this fascinating and quite rural Ethiopian village. Once you’ve found a guide, you will visit one of the many beehive/hippopotamus-like huts the Dorze are famous for, where you will explore the grounds and vegetation as well as be invited in for a little food and alcohol. It’s a cordial but humbling experience.

Top Tips

If you’re taking the to save costs, you might want to also befriend a local on that bus and ask them to guide you for about ETB100. Official guides often charge a lot more and may take you to less authentic parts of the village.
Expect to be shown inside one or two of the Dorze’s impressive bamboo-thatch houses and to be offered some local food and drink as part of the community visit.
If you don’t fancy taking the bus or a guided tour, a bajaj can be commandeered with a driver in for about ETB500 return. The driver may also be able to act as your guide, though confirm this with them beforehand.
