Acclaimed as the highest hotel in Africa, Simien Mountain Lodge has 20 en-suite bedrooms and is situated on the edge of the Simien National Park.

The restaurant is a spacious area with a log fire, serving international fare. Activities include walking with guides in the Simien Mountains, Mountain biking, excellent bird-watching and visits to local community projects and schools in the area.

Trekking in the Simiens has been the main activity for a long time. Once up on the escarpment, it is possible to walk through forests and over grassland for hundreds of miles. There are a series of short day treks, or you can trek to the summit of Ras Daschen which normally takes about 6 days. Other more modest treks go to Imet Gogo, Bwahit and the camp sites of Geech, Sankabur and Chennuk.

Why We Love It

The Lodge speciality is the champagne lunch, set up at a viewpoint at the end of a shorter trek- As this point is usually along the top of a two mile high escarpment, the views are pretty special.
