Please feel free to circulate this message among your friends.

Bahir Dar (in Amharic: ባህር ዳር) is a port on the south shore of the huge inland Lake named Tana. It is described by some people as the Ethiopian Riviera. The moniker sounds strange, but when you pull into town and see the wide streets shaded by palm trees and sweeping views across Lake Tana’s shimmering blue waters, you’ll perhaps understand. More than a block back from the shore, however, Bahir Dar is just another busy Ethiopian city.

We would like to send our greetings and looking forward to seeing you in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia for Memorable experiences.
