Ethiopia with a temperate climate, grand mountain scenery and a tradition of generous hospitality, all in all the Ethiopia highlands offer suburb trekking opportunities. Horses, mules, camels and donkeys are universal means of transport, so horse, mule and camel trekking has been a natural development. Trekking can be interpreted in many ways, but it is usually walking or riding a horse, mule or camel, or a combination of the two. The animals can be used just for carrying a load or can be ridden part of the time, and the usual group will have pack animals for baggage and some riding animals the group can be used in turn.
Trekking in Ethiopia does not involve any necessary skill, although it obviously is best if you are physically fit. The terrain is usually steep for only short period, when walking rather than riding may be necessary. Much of the time it will be walking, although this may be at an altitude as high as 4000 meters (13,120 feet). A slow pace is recommended, which is not difficult as there is so much to see and wonder at.
Trips can be tailored to meet and fulfill individuals’ needs or requirements, weather they need day trips around Dinsho, the headquarter of the Bale Mountains National Park or at Sankaber of the Simien Mountains National Park or ten or more days to explore the untouched stunning African land.
