I had a wonderful 4-day trek to the summit of Mt. Bwahit with Dave in November 2018. I chose Dave based on other reviews, the fact that he is from the Simien Mountain region (his family still lives in Argin village), and his emails which...More

We had an incredible experience with Sammy’s team in the Simien Mountains. We travel a lot and I have never seen such varied and jaw dropping scenery. The evenings were cold (we slept in -3 temperatures at night), but if you pack appropriately, it is...More

Very much hotter during the day, and very much colder at night than expected. A -5C sleeping bag was not enough at the higher camp at altitude 3600m. The trip was organised by the company Smiling Ethiopia, and the trek crew were excellent; we ate...More

I was there last week- not green at all. Very dusty and brown! There are some nice red flowers (apparently weeds) everywhere. I was on a tour with Intrepid and they organised our camping etc. It was all really well done.
