Arba Minch (አርባ ምንጭ) is located in the southern part of Ethiopia, around 500 km South-west of the capital Addis Ababa. It is home to two of Ethiopia’s largest Rift Valley lakes and two settlements which both feature two very different feels; Shecha with a more natural & local ambiance whilst Sikela is more of a rural city and the commercial center of Arba Minch.



The city is also known to be a good stop over for backpackers, tourists and organizations holding an interest in the deeper south of Ethiopia.


The city is also home to one of the country’s biggest student communities in the country suggesting that there is a great potential for this place to offer the best of everything to everyone.
