A prime example of the booming ecotourism industry in Ethiopia can be found in the Strawberry Fields Eco Lodge in the Konso region. Aside from typical services, the lodge also offers cultural immersion programs to allow visitors a glimpse into the lives of the Konso people. All tour activities are led by local Konso people, including an extensive permaculture program that promotes food security and healthy eating habits. Workshops are offered daily to educate visitors about the toll that deforestation and environmental degradation have taken on the local environment, and what can be done to fix it.
