About
Bale Mountains National Park is suitably a walking, trekking and hiking area for hikers, culture and nature enthusiasts, wildlife watchers, researchers and more. The park is known for being home to the Ethiopian wolf, mountain nyala, giant molerat and Bale monkey. UNESCO has estimated that more mammal species would become extinct were the habitats of the Bale Mountains to decline than if any other area of equivalent size on the globe were to disappear and, when this is combined with rare amphibian species, endemic birds and spectacular flora, it is easy to see why the park is designated as a Biodiversity Hotspot by Conservation International.

I did the 3 days / 4 nights trekking in April 2022. It was an amazing experience and very beautiful, we saw plenty of wildlife and lots of wolves. According to the guides, you are almost 100% guaranteed that you will spot them. I wasn't even there at the coldest time of the year, but I was still very cold at night - so do pack warm clothes. Jamal was a great guide, he understood when I hinted in my frist enquiry that I was on a budget & made me an offer where we carried everything ourselves. His English is really good and he responded to all my questions via e-mail in advance super fast. I highly recommend him as a guide for this trip, you can reach him at jamalkassim.bale@gmail.com or Whatsapp him at +251912767179. He was very flexible also when my flight data changed and adapted the trip accordingly.

We (a German couple) were in Ethiopia‘s south in April 2022. Part of this travel was a 3 day hike in Bale NP with guide Ahmed Alo. Ahmed is a very experienced guide. With his help we saw plenty of wildlife including some Ethiopian wolves and learned a lot about Bale‘s animals and plants.Ahmed‘s English is very good and we highly recommend him as guide for Bale Trips.

We were 9 days in Ethiopia with children aged 14,12,6.
We hiked with our guide Ayouba Ahmed :)
We hiked in several places in the mountains and South Ethiopia, but much of the hike was in the mountains: we rode horses, toured the plateau and saw red wolves, slept in a local hut, and witnessed the wonderful nature of the people, animals, waterfalls and plants. All the way Ayouba controlled the area, adapted himself to our desires and the ability of the children, but did not give up on us so that our experience would really be maximized.
Highly recommended.

Ayuba from Bale Mountain Eco tours was awesome. We booked our entire 18 day trip with him (including Danikil and Omo Valley). He took care of everything. He grew up in Dinsho and knows the mountains like the back of his hand. He is amazing at spotting animals off in the horizon. We saw the Ethiopian wolf, two serval cats and a variety of other wildlife.
The Bale Mountians are Stark and beautiful, much different than the Simien. We went if February when it was unseasonably cold and windy so it made our four day trek a little challenging (along with the altitude). We didn't get to the Harenna forest because of a fuel shortage.
We even got to meet Ayuba's mom who was cooking for a group from the Frankfurt zoological society.
Overall we had a great time in the Bale mountains but even more glad that Ayuba was with us the entire trip.

We did 3 nights of trekking through the Bale National Park with a night either side in Robe and Goba. Our guide through all of this was Ahemd Alo (Bale Mountains tours). Ahmed is a local man from Dinsho who is a wealth of knowledge and runs a very professional business. Highly recommend.

Had a great trip trekking with guide Jamal Kassim at Bale Mountains Authentic Tours. Camped one night close to a Ethiopian wolf den and spent lots of time watching four cubs playing; such an incredible sight. Spectacular views walking through the landscape with plenty of sightings of Mountain Nyala, Menelek Bushbuck, Rock Hyrux, Mole Rats, etc. It was a particularly cold few nights with sub-zero temperatures but fortunately we had two sleeping bags each. Jamal and team did a great job; we ate well and everything was organised very well. Jamal can be contacted at jamalkassim.bale@gmail.com or WhatsApp +251912767179.

We've very much enjoyed this trip with guide Jamal (jamalkassim.bale@gmail.com, +251912767179)! It is amazing to see how well-organised this trip was, given the circumstances. When we were hungry, there was good food. When we felt cold, there was a campfire and the sleeping bags were just perfect. Horses were carrying our luggage, and the chefs made sure that there was always coffee and tea just before departure and upon arrival. If you take this trip, do bring sun cream, because we burned on literally every naked spot. The cold wind made us forget the power of the sun.
During this well-organised trip we saw many beautiful animals and uncountable beautiful views. We saw many nyalas, reeboks, warthogs, birds and we even saw 6 Ethiopian wolves greating each other in the early morning. The last day we went by car to the plateau and the tropical forest. As a sad, but quite impressive bonus we were driving in the middle of millions of locusts. All in all, the four days were well-spent and we got a pretty complete picture of the huge park. Thanks a lot, Jamal!
