Our 13 day trip starts with an introductory city tour in Addis Ababa to include the wonderful Ethnological Museum, general City sites and a visit to one of the impressive Cathedrals or to the Mercato, one of the largest covered markets in Africa.

An early flight to Gondar the next day allows us time to explore the very interesting Royal Compound with its 16th century castles built by past rulers of Ethiopia. We will also visit the Trinity Church, famous for the painted ceiling of angels and wall murals depicting Biblical scenes.

On to the Simien National Park the next day, from where we begin our actual trekking. Leaving Debark after an early lunch, we arrive at our first camp site by late afternoon.

For the next 7 days we pass through the most spectacular scenery of the Simien Mountains, including the Geech Abyss and the Imet Gogo promontory. Those wishing to scale Ethiopia's highest peak Ras Dashen may do so, otherwise you are free to relax in camp.

Exiting through the contrasting scenery of the Lowlands for the last three days of our trek, we rendezvous with our transport in Adi Arkay to return to Gondar for a celebratory meal.

Your guide will be very familiar with the flora and fauna and will have excellent English. Extensions to Lalibela, Axum and Bahir Dar can be arranged. Please find out more by e-mailing us on
