My wife is very keen to do a family trip to Ethiopia. She is very keen that ‘just this once, it’s her trip not mine’. A constant driver and guide is not within our budge and not what she wants to do either. Her plan is for us to spend some time in a village where she has stayed before near Gonda (Tim and Kim village), where I’m assured there’s lot of birds and then do a trek in the Simien mountains. She has found this company http://www.hikingsimienmountains.com/5dayssimien.html. I know the Bale mountains are where most people see this species but does anyone have any idea of the chances in the Simien mountains or any knowledge of the companies that organise trekking there?
