Rent lodges
There are lodges for rent that sleep two persons. The lodges have their own shower and toilet and a terrace with garden furniture and a view across the lake.

Tim & Kim Village is a campsite of over three hectares just outside the village of Gorgora in northern Ethiopia. The campsite is situated in a quiet spot in the middle of the countryside on the banks of Lake Tana. A paradise for bird spotters, fishermen and everyone who is looking to relax after a long trip.

Overland travellers and camping with your own tent
We offer spacious stands by the lake where you can park any overland vehicle. If you have your own tent, please pick a stand on the site or rent one with a reed-covered shelter with your own terrace and a view across Tana Lake. Tents sleep one or two persons.

Rent fully equipped tents
We rent out fully equipped tents that sleep two persons. They include a mattress, sheets, pillows and blankets. They are located on fixed stands and have a reed-covered shelter and a terrace with a view across Lake Tana.

Kano trips
Kano trips on the lake from Tim & Kim Village are available. We can take you to or around the beautifull and culturally interesting monastery islands of Lake Tana. We offer trips ranging from 30 minutes up 2,5 hours. For routes and possibilities see the map. Ask us for conditions, boats and prices. Lifejackets and waterproof bags are available. All trips with a captain.

Our restaurant is located in the middle of the campsite and you are most welcome to drop by for a drink and a bite to eat. We serve local and imported drinks and three meals a day. If you would like to have lunch and/or dinner, please tell us beforehand (at breakfast at the latest) to give us time to make preparations.
