Simien National Park, in northern Ethiopia is a spectacular landscape, where massive erosion over millions of years has created jagged mountain peaks, deep valleys and sharp precipices dropping some 1,500 m. The park is of global significance for biodiversity conservation because it is home to globally threatened species, including the iconic Walia ibex, a wild mountain goat found nowhere else in the world, the Gelada baboon and the Ethiopian wolf.

We are a group of 10 members, travel with a at the park with guide for three beautiful days, we met wild animals and sonic views, one of the best. The service we had was excellent, the food was great. We like to recommend "Hiking simien mountains" and his manager Desalgn. He can be reached at desalgngebire@yahoo.com.

We got Sammy Kasaw to arrange our trip for us (tents, ranger, guide, food etc) and found it very good. I would advise going for a few days as... More

The Simiens is a highlight of Ethiopia. We did a 4 day tour, and saw some amazing scenery and wildlife. Tesh was our tour guide and he and his crew did a great job with the camp set up and food. Day 3 was definitely the highlight as far as the hiking and scenery - a strenuous and satisfying day... More

The Simiens were one of the highlights of the Ethiopia trip, stunning scenery and we were very well taken care of at our campsite. We saw gelada monkeys doing their thing, some bushbucks, loads of birds and even a token leopard (fleetingly). Our guide Desu was very knowledgeable on the ecosystem and geology and was keen to share his knowledge... More
