The dramatic Simien Mountains form the northern part of the Great Rift Valley and are home to the incredibly rare Ethiopian Wolf and the Gelada baboon. The mountains are comprised of three botanical regions, from pasture to forested alpine through to mountain grasslands. The result is a wide array of plants, birds and animals.
We visit the Simiens on our Classic Northern Circuit itinerary. Should you wish to spend longer exploring this extraordinary range of mountains, we can combine it with a trip to Bale and the Rift Valley Lakes.
