I didn't enjoy the Dorze village as much as others who gave a review on this site. The view from the Dorze Lodge was very nice. The Dorze women were very kind and friendly. I felt that the dancing children on the road on the way up and down the mountain were dancing for tourists' money and nothing else, it seemed sad to me. I also felt that money was the main concern of the the people who run the village. I didn't feel love or warmth from them. I felt like they were only interested in tourists for their money. Maybe you will have a better experience than I did.

The day trip to dorze village with Tarik +251 92 561 6961 was a lot of fun. I wanted to use public transport but because it didn't fit my schedule Tarik quickly organized a motorcycle to go to the village. The ride was already part of the adventure. I was impressed by the buildings and beautiful scarfs the Dorze weave. To end our trip we even had time to visit the dorsso waterfall.

This was a wonderful, fun, educative experience. The Dorze people are welcoming and included us in dancing, spinning and trying their staple food and drink.

Dorze village is about a one hour drive from Arbaminch up a mountainous road. You will be greeted by children dancing on the road (bring candy/treats to share). Once in the village, you will get a tour of the houses (shaped like elephants), their way of life (spinning, weaving, dancing), their food-especially the Konjo bread made from the fake banana tree topped with spices and honey from their hives. You will have the most fun doing the toasts with their homemade Areke (moonshine). Our agent arranged the trip for us.
