Nature escape trips in Ethiopia
Ethiopia is opening its doors again for tourism after the pandemic hit in March. Since some weeks also domestic travel gets easier.
We travelled for you to see what is possible in Ethiopia and made some good deals with accommodations.
Now we have a small but fine selection of short private trips for you and your family or friends where health risks are comparatively low as you mainly spend your time in nature.
The pandemic hit us all unexpected and ever since travelling for many of us became a safety concern. Slowly, we get more and more confident about leaving the house again but are still not sure of what is possible when leaving Addis Ababa. Therefore our team went to several destinations all over Ethiopia to see how it feels to travel and what is possible at the moment.
And we come back to you with several great nature escape trips for you and your friends that are totally fine and pretty safe to do at the moment. Plus you will amazed by some of the nature gems that we discovered for you. We put all our creativity and logistics together to make you mountain biking, hiking, kayaking or simply relaxing at Lake Tana, Simien or the Lasta Mountains. Just talk to one of our Travel Experts to get your trip going.
Furthermore, we worked on our Safe Travel Guidelines and trained our staff and guides to guarantee you hygienic and safe journeys in times of the pandemic. We also adapted our booking terms to give you the chance for a really low risk booking with us.

Really enjoyed our trip and our experience with the guides was fantastic. The whole experience went smoothly and SimienEcoTours and their guides are a large reason for our ability to immerse ourselves into the Ethiopian natural and cultural environment.

Our group of four older men had a terrific trip custom-organized by Marco and his team. Easy to deal with. Prompt. Responsive. Reasonably priced. The company supplied us with a fantastic guide, high-quality gear, tents, and a cook who supplied ample delicious food. I would recommend SimienEcoTours to anyone.

The places were in an itinerary suggested by Marco after evaluating my personal interests. I saw amazing churches with amazing architecture, sat with wild baboons, tried cultural foods and unexpected dancing! This trip was amazing. I would recommend Ethiopia for a unique travel experience and definitely recommend this company.

Nature Escape at Lake Tana's Northern Shore
From the old imperial city of Gondar you set off for a mountain biking adventure in the Simien National Park, probably one of the most spectacular sceneries in the country. Bike along lonely gravel roads with magnificent views. Some climbs are followed by endless descents that wind down into the valleys.
