Walking holidays in Ethiopia

Even if you have trekked everywhere else, we guarantee that memories of our walking holiday in the Simien Mountains of Ethiopia will remain with you forever. The unique scenery is surprisingly spectacular, the people delightful and the visit to the historical sites something special. Camp in stunningly beautiful locations in the Ethiopian Highlands, experience real Africa and trek through the World Heritage Site of the Simien Mountains National Park, dominated by high plateaux, plunging gorges and dramatic rock pinnacles.

"An utterly unique destination, capturing people, places and tastes like nothing we had experienced before. Ethiopia is a captivating country and leaves a most memorable impression." Iffat Hewitt, Simien Mountains and Castles

Walks are mostly on good trails which are the paths used by local people and include steep, rocky terrain. Trekking at altitudes above 3000m (up to 4200m) is more demanding than at lower elevations so our trip is best suited to experienced mountain walkers. Accommodation varies from hotels and guesthouses with en-suite facilities to camps chosen for their scenic beauty.

The best time of year to travel to Ethiopia is from September to April, when it is drier and slightly cooler, especially between September and November after the summer rain when the landscape is vivid green and views are clearer.
