Top 10 Hot Springs in Ethiopia and Kenya

5. Lake Abijata-Shala National Park

Ethiopia’s Lake Abijatta and Lake Shala have a number of hot springs that are tourist attractions. There is usually so much steam rising from Lake Shala that the view is foggy. These two lakes are located in the Great Rift Valley area.

Other hot springs in Ethiopia include the Lake Shala hot springs, which are part of the Rift Valley land formation, and the Wanzaye hot springs. Unlike some other African countries with hot springs, many Ethiopian hot springs feed into hotel swimming pools and are generally accessible to visitors and locals.
