Tour one of Africa’s most awe-inspiring landscapes

Your Simien Mountain tour will introduce you to a landscape that the renowned travel writer Dervla Murphy once described as “more grandly wild… and utterly remote” than anywhere else on earth. The Gothic spires and volcanic pinnacles of the UNESCO-listed Simiens claw at the sky, reaching up to 4,000 metres in height, but it’s the views from them that really astound. Looking out from craggy escarpments, the vast panoramas of undulating blue-green plains far below are simply captivating, and the horizon stretches out forever.

It’s no surprise this mountain range is often referred to as the roof of Africa. And your Simien Mountain tour can place you up with gigantic lammergeier (or bearded) vulture who keep a watchful eye out for prey. As you walk along the cliff faces of the massif, gelada baboon and endangered walia ibex will also be treading warily close by.

We never forget that this is your tour of the Simien Mountains, so we will let you do it your way, You can travel through this stunning region by vehicle, but if time and fitness allows we always recommend seeing the sites on foot or by mule for the truly immersive experience.
