After a few nights on the ground in the tent, we appreciated very much the comfort of the hired fixed tent at the Evangadi Campsite. The tent was furnished with chairs, a table and beds, all made of bamboo.
Despite the roof above the fixed tent and some breeze from the windows and doors, it was still extremely hot during the day, allthough it was more bearable than outdoors and in the small tents.
Despite the heat and some inconveniences it was a lovely place.
In Turmi in the far southwest of Ethiopia we stayed at the Evangadi Campsite. Because of the extreme heat and dust we decided to hire a fixed tent with a roof, which protected the tent against the burning sun.
To increase the ''Out of Africa'' feeling we opened the backside of our tent to catch some breeze and for a view at the savannah and bush behind. Though the only animals we saw, passing by our tent, were goats.
At the campsite were toilets, french style and showers, but there was a shortage of water.
We had to cook ourselves, but they just started to build a restaurant at the site.
Despite the dust, the heat and the shortage of water it was one of the most romantic places to stay during our trip in Southern Ethiopia. So it was worth the 200 birr pro tent.
