The Simien national park is located in the Simien central masif, a major highland area that includes Ethiopia's highest mountain, Ras Dejen (4620).

It is home to many indigenous species.  Some such as the Walia Ibex and Abyssinian Wolf are very rare but the gregarious Gelada baboons are always easy to find.

Access to the park is controlled through the town of Debark and it is mandatory that you have an armed ranger and a guide with you.  This is more to provide local employment than due to any particular risks.

Camping is permitted at designated sites and these have cold showers and toilet facilities.
