Gheralta Lodge

In the heart of Tigrai, the northern region of Ethiopia, lies a special accommodation structure: the Gheralta Lodge near Hawzen town.

Gheralta area, with its unique chain of mountains, is the home of the rock churches, some famous for their architecture, ancient paintings and manuscripts and others known for their magnificent view.

The lodge is located in the heart of the historical route, two hours FWD from Mekelle airport, half a day’s drive from Axum and a day from Lalibela.


In a ten hectare rocky area, with four large secular ficus trees and a breathtaking view of the Gheralta mountains’ landscape, an Italian family is constructing a five bungalow lodge, a restaurant with leisure area and a service zone.

Enrica and Silvio Rizzotti aim to offer a family style resort– but with impeccable standards of finishing, maintenance and cleanliness – and good, simple cooking prepared with local products.
