Simien Mountains Private Trekking Tour 3 days

This spectacular UNESCO protected site will not fail to take your breath away, especially from the top of Ras Dashen, Ethiopia's, highest point at 4543m above sea level. Be awestruck in the landscape's every direction, from the deep valleys to the jagged mountain peaks. Once again, wildlife lovers will get a thrill from Ethiopia's animal range: over 20 large mammal species and over 130 bird species reside in the park. Amongst these, you can spot the gelada baboon, the carcal (large cat), and the three metre wing-spanned lammergeier (bearded vulture). Endangered species can also be found, including the Ethiopian wolf and the Walia Ibex, a wild goat found nowhere else in the world. Some say the Simien Mountains are the rival of Colorado's Grand Canyon; the only way to find out is to see them for yourself.

Our clients say:

My tour with with Afro Ethiopia Tour was outstanding!! My guide, Meki, in Addis Ababa was wonderful. She was very attentive, accommodating and knowledgeable about the history of the sites we visited in Addis. I spent the whole day with Meki and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. I was so impressed with her service that I asked that she put me in contact with someone from her company who was able to plan a tour of Lalibela. That's when I met another guide, Taddesse. Taddesse was also excellent. I spent 2 days with Taddesse visiting all of the rock-hewn churches and other historic sites in Lalibela. Like Meki, Taddesse was very accommodating, knowledgeable and extremely courteous. All in all, my trip with Afro Ethiopia Tour company was fabulous. I could not have made a better choice. I highly recommend Afro Tours!!
