Perched on the edge of the escarpment, the 12-room boutique lodge is a beautiful place to experience Ethiopia's Simien Mountains National Park. Combining simple luxury and elegant design in a stunning setting, the lodge promotes sustainable tourism with minimal environmental impact, and provides new opportunities to the local community. Learn more about our environmental and community initiatives here.

The Simien Mountains National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world. Massive erosion over millions of years has created jagged mountain peaks, deep valleys at the bottom of sharp precipices, and a dramatic escarpment that stretches for miles with breathtaking views over the rugged lowlands below. These unique features have led to the mountain range being described as Ethiopia’s answer to the Grand Canyon. The Simien Mountains are a nature lover's dream, rich in wildlife and offering sightings of mammals you'll only glimpse in Ethiopia. The park is home to the largest population of Gelada monkeys, which live in large groups of up to 200 individuals, the Walia Ibex (a horned mountain goat) and the Ethiopian wolf - all endemic to Ethiopia - as well as leopards and hyenas. With the varied habitats of the high plateaus and the warmer lowlands within the park there is rich birdlife including lammergeier vultures, tawny eagles, and thick billed ravens. There are over 180 species of bird found within the national park – five of which will be seen nowhere else.

At Limalimo Lodge guests will be able to enjoy the park on treks ranging from a few hours to many days, by car or by mule. Your stay includes transportation to and from Gondar airport, meals, local drinks, one visit to the National Park by 4x4, and a tour of Gondar city (en-route to the airport).

  • Travel will occur within the following date range(s):
    May 29, 2018 to May 29, 2019
