Limalimo Lodge, Simien Escarpment

Whichever way you look at it, Limalimo Lodge presents you with the most stunning views. It stands on a richly wooded hillside on the edge of the Simien Escarpment. So, from almost any angle, you’re continually confronted with jaw-droppingly beautiful views of tiered mountain peaks – like a monumental masonry sea rolling away into the blue distance.

Inside the lodge is just as appealing in its own right. The design is up-to-the-minute. Tonally muted woods and natural stone conspire together to create an atmosphere of understated sophistication. Huge picture windows bring the outside in – to the foot of your bed. And a thoroughly modern conservation policy benefits both the surrounding habitat and its inhabitants. Great reasons for making Limalimo Lodge part of your tailor-made holiday to Ethiopia.
