Proudly claiming to be the highest hotel in Africa, the UNESCO-protected Simien Mountains are the backdrop to this spectacular property. The rooms are housed in thatched ‘tukels’, like small cottages, and the hotel offers informative treks and horse rides to explore the wilderness and its wildlife.
The highest part of the country is also a National Park that is protected by UNESCO. One reason – apart from the beauty of the scenery – is the fact that it is home to many endangered species, including the Ethiopian Wolf and a rare ibex.
