Discover the scenic and cultural wonders of eastern Ethiopia when you plan your budget flights to Gode, which was once the capital of the Gode region. It lost its title to the city of Jijiga in 1994, due to better infrastructure and communications facilities in the latter. The city of Gode is also home to a regional airport, which serves flights to Gode from Ethiopian cities on the national carrier, Ethiopian Airlines. Its landscape is lust and fertile, owing to the fact that the mighty Shebelle River runs fast and strong alongside the city. Visit this intriguing city for a taste of a culture that is truly unique and special.

History

Prior to the Ogaden War, the city was garrisoned by the 4th Divisions 5th Brigade, which was stationed around Gode in five military camps. The city was captured by the Western Somali Liberation Front in 1977 as part of the Ogaden war, and remained in Somalias hands until 1980, when the city was again reclaimed by the Ethiopian army under the reigns of Brigadier general Demisse Bulto. Gode was used as three bases to clear the area of the foreign Somali forces by December 3rd, 1980.
The Ethiopian Army received full support from Cuba and the Soviet Union, and after a long, 3-year conflict, it managed to gain control of the area after the Somali Army withdrew from the area in 1978. The most news-worthy stories of Gode have, thus far, been less than inspiring although this is set to change. Gode has been the unfortunate hub of several famines that swept the area, the first in 1981, the second in 1991, which was quite severe and necessitated the UN to airlift food to more than 80,000 people who were stranded outside the city limits. Gode saw another famine in 2000, as the towns size had grown to around 100,000 inhabitants.

Things to see

The most significant lure of the city of Gode is the Shebelle River, a might water body that starts from the nations highlands and then plummets southeast to Somalia, towards Mogadishu. Although it dries up near the Jubba River, swollen rainfall levels can send it hurtling towards the Indian Ocean. Visitors on flights to Gode who tour the region will be able to see a bridge constructed in 1968, with fantastic views of the river from both sides, amidst the landscape.

Climate

November to March is the best time to plan your low cost flights to Gode, as the climate is mild with daytime temperatures of 23 degrees Celsius.
