Arba Minch: Bekele Mola Hotel

Lovely place overlooking the lakes/national park. Resident warthogs are an added bonus. Decent shower (not hot but refreshing). Good restaurant.

Key Afer: Key Afer Camping

Basic bathroom available to use. Lots of children around wanting to lend a hand/show you around. Fine as a stopover to visit the market.

Mago National Park: HQ Camp

A great spot right in the park with monkeys and birds around you. You need to pay for a scout for the night. Longdrop and water pump available, with a river for washing. Enjoyed  it.

Turmi: Buska Lodge www.buskalodge.com

A lovely modern lodge which allows you to camp. Good bathroom facilities. Food was okay but not fantastic. A nice place to stay ahead of a number of days wild camping.
