Ethiopia - Lake Langano
Unlike many other freshwater lakes in Ethiopia, Lake Langano is safe to swim in, making it popular with tourists and city-dwellers. There are a number of resorts around the lake and water sports are popular.
Bordering the eastern shore of Lake Langano is East Langano Nature Reserve, a beautiful lakeside forest, home to a variety of birds and mammals including monkeys, baboons and warthogs. The area is a delight to explore on foot or on horseback.
