SIMIEN LODGE

HIGHEST LODGE

Stay in Africa’s highest lodge, perched at a lofty 3,300 meters just inside the entrance to Simien Mountains National Park.

Rooms are in round, thatched-roofed huts or tukuls, traditionally styled and thoughtfully appointed with solar-powered underfloor heating for those crisp mountain nights. Stay here on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Ethiopia, and you’ll find yourself within striking distance of the best trekking opportunities – including the famous climb to Mt. Dashen. Mountain bikes are on hand for guest use, as well as camping gear.

Some of the park’s wildlife can be found nowhere else on earth. As you explore, keep an eye out for Walia ibex, hyenas, tawny eagles, gelada baboons and the elusive Simien wolf. History buffs can also check out the ancient monastery of Saddique Amba, clinging precariously onto a sheer cliff, and discover the centuries-old Deresge Maryam church. Retire after an absorbing day to Simien’s warm and inviting bar, the highest place to get a drink in Africa!
