In the morning we leave Addis Ababa and drive along the King’s Highway to the town of Shashamane, approximately 250 kilometers south of Addis Ababa.

We check in in our hotel, and take some time to relax. Then we will visit a local musician at his house who will share his music and philosophy with us

Day 2: Saturday

We spend a full day in and around Shashamane. We visit different Rastafari mansions like The Nyabinghi Tabernacle, the Bobo Shanti, and the Twelve tribes of Israel. We meet the community leaders and elders and engage with them in reasonings and meditation. We have lunch at a local Rastafari restaurant, drink the best juice in town and meet different local people. In the late afternoon you can decide to stay in Shashamane and mingle further with the Rasta community, or for example go to Hawassa for a boat trip on the lake. Chances are good you will see Hippo's from up close! We will discus the options with you 

If possible we will organize a small live Reggae music event in the evening.
