Simien Mountains National Park
A Wild Climb, Take the Challenge..!
Simien Mountains National park is a three –hour drive from Gondar, Simien mountains national park, one of Africa’s genuine beauty spots.
Often compared to the Grand Canyon, this park of craggy peaks, towering ridges and panoramic views over the surrounding countryside is almost another world.
Rugged and dramatic, with Ethiopia’s highest peak Ras Dejen and swaths of brightly colored wildflowers and giant baobabs, it also has continual surprises by dozens of Gelada baboons, the area’s distinctive shaggy breed with red over their heart.
Simien mountain national park is also a major bird-watching destination with many species, of which an astonishing 37 are endemic, or near-endemic.
