What makes Ethiopia so special?
You’ll find sites that reveal the country’s rich Christian and dynastic heritage alongside dramatic African landscapes that afford opportunities for some superb trekking. Ethiopia’s ancient rock-hewn churches of Lalibela and the remains of ‘Africa’s Camelot’ at Gonder are only two of the highlights of our Simien Mountains Ethiopia trek and as well as our tour of Ethiopia’s key historical sights.
The high peaks and deep abysses of the Simien Mountains, which teem with rare and endemic wildlife such as the gelada baboon and walia ibex, make a unique and unforgettable Ethiopia trekking holiday experience. The abundant wildlife and beautiful scenery of the Simien Mountains is only part of their appeal. They are also a place where you will find small villages where you will be greeted by excitable children and welcomed with a formal tea ceremony. It is this opportunity to glimpse the lifestyle of the local people that makes an Ethiopia trek so complete.
