Tucked away just outside of the remote outpost of Turmi, Buska Lodge is the most comfortable spot from which to explore this stunning part of the Omo Valley. Bedrooms are all found in individual rounded huts or "tukuls" as they are known locally. The beds are draped in full-length mosquito nets and fans are provided for guests' comfort. The en-suite bathrooms have hot running water and flush loos, although the hot water is restricted to certain times of day. Each tukul has a small sun terrace at the front where guests can relax and watch the sunrise. There is a lovely restaurant at the lodge which serves a variety of local and international cuisine. The lodge also has a campsite attached. The staff here are very friendly and the lodge works with a number of the local Hammer Villages to ensure that the locals benefit directly from the tourists that the lodge draws to the region. A great spot from which to explore Turmi.
When you are in Gondar - go for dinner at the Four Sisters restaurant. This is a wonderful locally- run authentic spot, which serves great food and a lively atmosphere.
