“We had a wonderful time with Afera. He was so fun, friendly and informative throughout our trek, sharing all sorts of interesting information about the area and the local culture (including Ethiopian music on his iPod) We went at the perfect pace, pausing to admire stunning views and enjoy the environment along the way. The trek was really well organized, and we always felt safe and well taken care of.”

The Simien Mountains National Park (known as the roof of Africa) is staggeringly beautiful with its natural formations. It is the home of various animals, including the endemic Gelada baboon, Ethiopian wolf, Walia ibex and Menilik’s bush buck.
