Big THANKS to Alex from Richard and Liz Rider. We met Alex when our friend in Gondar, Sisay Asefa arranged a trek for us in the Simien Mountains. The guide he picked was Alex. What a great choice! Together with our scout Eshete and the rest of the crew, he gave us a wonderful time. He is so knowledgeable on mountains and the fauna and flora as well as being a real gentleman.
If you are lucky enough to book Alex then we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
My girlfriend visited me while I was living in Ethiopia, and I wanted to show her one of Ethiopia’s most beautiful areas: the Simien Mountains.
Alex organized our trek for us, and we were not disappointed! Things went very smoothly: Alex arranged our excellent guide and other support staff (scout, cooks, and mule handlers), the necessary gear (tents and sleeping bags), and transportation in a good 4WD to and from Gonder.
I highly recommend an organized tour as it removes all the hassle and lets you concentrate on enjoying your trekking experience! We hiked from near the park entrance to Sankaber camp, then on to Geech camp, and ended up at Imetgogo, a major vantage point at over 12,000 feet altitude.
The views the entire way were absolutely incredible, and the wildlife — including lots of gelada baboons and other animals) — was fascinating as well. Trekking in the Simiens is an essential part of any visit to Ethiopia! I’ve also attached a photo of me and Sarah during our trek which you’re welcome to use! There also several There also several more high-quality photos form my trek here
which you’re also welcome to use. Please credit them by saying “photo by Brett Keller” if you would though.

I have recently returned from Ethiopia having undertaken my second long distance solo trek with Alex. In 2012 we walked the 16 day trail from the Simiens to Lalibela and this year (2013) the 15 day trail from the Simiens to Mekelle. Both trails involve elements of personal challenge but also the rewards of travelling through a landscape little changed by time or the impact of people. That I should return speaks highly of the easy going but professional approach and good organization which you will experience with Alex. Having been raised in the Simiens he has a special insight into the land, its people and customs.
