Limalimo Lodge

A remote boutique lodge in the stunning Simien Mountains

A friendly eco-retreat with spectacular views

Explore the Simien Mountains, visit local communities, or simply relax in comfort whilst enjoying romantic breakfasts

If you want to gaze upon the Simien Mountains over a romantic champagne breakfast whilst the lowlands slowly come to life in the morning sun, then Limalimo Lodge is the place to be. In a country not known for its luxury accommodation, Limalimo is an exciting find indeed. Tucked away on the edge of an escarpment overlooking the Simien Mountains National Park, this striking contemporary lodge is minimalist yet stylish, with local building influences such as rammed earth walls and thatched roofs in abundance. Inside the bedrooms you'll find plenty of exposed wood and earthy-coloured furnishings that blend naturally with the surroundings, as well as large showers and bathroom views you won't forget in a hurry. The enormous picture windows in the restaurant really make the most of the spectacular views, and there are plenty of cosy spots to curl up and contemplate just where you are. Comfort is key here, and the lodge is a welcoming retreat after a day out adventuring.

Hiking amongst the other-worldly eroded rocky pinnacles for a half or full day trek is the best way to explore the Simien Mountains. As you stroll through the valleys with your guide, keep an eye out for the famous Gelada baboons (it won't be difficult to spot them!), as well as the endemic Walia ibex, bushbuck and plenty of bird-life. If luck is on your side you may even see the endangered Ethiopian wolf. For the even more intrepid, overnight camping under the stars can be arranged, with your own guide, cook and porters. And for those who don't fancy walking, there are always horses or mules, which are great for families with younger children who perhaps aren't quite up to walking longer distances.

Visiting Limalimo village is a great opportunity to experience rural Ethiopian village life, and guests are welcomed into a local home for freshly ground coffee and newly baked bread. There's also a church to explore and some fabulous valley views, perfect for picnics at remote beauty spots.

Back at the lodge it's time for dinner - a tantalising blend of Ethiopian and European dishes - followed by drinks on the terrace with cosily crackling firepits for cooler evenings. Peace and beauty are two words that don't do justice to Limalimo, but don't take our word for it. Go see it for yourselves.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
