Travel off the beaten track and see Ethiopia's most charismatic endemic species - the gelada baboon and walia ibex – whilst enjoying spectacular scenery and comfortable accommodation.

Travelling first to the picturesque Simien Mountains, you can familiarise yourself with a troop of curious gelada baboons as they forage amongst the grasses, and go in search of walia ibex in the Chenek area of the park.

Continuing your journey, travel south to the spectacular Bale Mountains, where amidst wild alpine scenery, you can view of a diversity of wildlife at ease. Spend a day exploring the Sanetti Plateau, which is home to the fascinating Ethiopian wolf, as well as mountain nyala, bohor reedbuck, Menelik's bushbuck and an amazing array of birdlife

By focusing on two key destinations, your overall journey time is reduced, therefore maximising the time spent in each area on your quest for wolf watching and baboons aplenty!
