Limalimo Lodge

Simien Mountains, Ethiopia

Perched on the edge of the escarpment, Limalimo Lodge is a beautiful place to experience Ethiopia's Simien Mountains National Park. Combining simple luxury and elegant design in a stunning setting, the lodge promotes sustainable tourism with minimal environmental impact. The lodge was built by members of the Limalimo community, and the majority of staff working there are local.

Limalimo Lodge offers 12 rooms scattered throughout the site’s sprawling 10 hectares and are a mixture of twin, double, triple and family. The feel of the rooms is elegant and subtle, thoughtfully blending comfort with distinctive local finesse. Each room’s location affords seclusion and spectacular views, with en-suite facilities and a private terrace. Electricity, hot water and heating are provided by sustainable sources, while water for the gardens is recycled.

Activities at Limalimo Lodge are varied. Treks can be undertaken through the highlands or lowlands with their magnificent species of fora and fauna, while there are numerous ideal spots for bird watching. This is a prime spot to visit the Geladas baboons and Ibex goats, which are native to the region. In the late afternoon, you can also enjoy late afternoon sundowners on the balcony with some of the best views of Africa.
