Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Bahir Dar and Lake Tana

overview

Safari Highlights

More a stop-over to Gondar, Bahir Dar, on the shore of Lake Tana, grew around a Jesuit settlement in the 16th century, and the Pedro Paez building in the town dates from this time. Lake Tana is the source of the Blue Nile, and the falls at Tiss Abay, 35km south east of Bahir Dar are well worth a visit. On the lake itself, you can enjoy a boat trip to one or two of the monasteries. Some of these do not admit women, but your guide will steer you around this.
