What Makes Wukro Special?
A recent addition to the site is a microbrewery, offering a range of mouth watering wines and crisp craft beers, all made on site using centuries old techniques.
Featuring carved stone walls, reminiscent of those found in the churches in Gheralta, the lodge offers a wholly unique experience, harking back to ancient Ethiopia.
Wukro lodge is an oasis within the desert region of Tigray, and provides guests with a sanctuary of serenity amidst the backdrop of an endless wilderness spreading in all directions.
