Posted @withrepost@ethiopian.wildlife Simien Mountains National Park, often referred to as the “Roof of Africa,” is in the northern Ethiopian highlands and noted for its spectacular landscape – deep valleys, jagged mountain peaks, and sharp precipices. #ethiopia #simien #simienmountainsnationalpark #simienmountains #mountains #mountain_world #worldheritage #unescoworldheritage #natureworldheritage #naturephotography #ethiopianheritage #travel #travelphotography #travelguide #instagram #insta #instatravel #instago #instablog

“Africa changes you forever, like nowhere on earth. Once you have been there, you will never be the same. But how do you begin to describe its magic to someone who has never felt it? How can you explain the fascination of this vast, dusty continent, whose oldest roads are elephant paths? Could it be because Africa is the place of all our beginnings, the cradle of mankind, where our species first stood upright on the savannahs of long ago?” ~ Brian Jackman ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Come with us on a life-changing trip to Ethiopia in Oct. Find all the trip details via the link in our profile!☝🏽 at Semien Mountains

My mind has been walking back to my last trip to Ethiopia in January when @alexis_bonogofsky and I took a little hike in the Simien Mountains in search of Gelada monkeys. Also, we had the cutest scout (bodyguard) you ever did see. at Simien Mountains National Park

Jeudi Desti : L’Ethiopie, au cœur de l’Abyssinie. L’Éthiopie, située sur la Corne de l’Afrique, est considérée comme l’un des berceaux de l’humanité. Loin d’être un pays comme les autres, son histoire en fait sa singularité. C’est notamment sur ces terres que le squelette de Lucy a été découvert. Rendez-vous à Addis Abeba, perchée à 2500 m d’altitude, la capitale et porte d’entrée pour tous les voyageurs. Après un tour de la ville, vous vous rendrez à Bahar Dar pour découvrir les chutes du Nil bleu. Du lac Tana dans le nord-ouest de l’Éthiopie, le plus grand lac du pays, les eaux du Nil bleu traversent près de 32 kilomètres avant de former les chutes de Tisissat. Votre navigation vous mènera à la presqu’île de Tsegue, l’une des 37 îles monastiques présentent sur le lac. En remontant vers le Nord, vous atteindrez le Parc national du Simien, classé au patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO. Entre plateaux, vallées et sommets, le parc est le terrain de jeu idéal des randonneurs mais également de plusieurs espèces endémiques comme le babouin gelada ou le renard du Simien. Enfin, vous serez plongés au cœur des deux villes saintes éthiopiennes : Axoum, capitale religieuse de l’Église Orthodoxe et siège de nombreux sites archéologiques et Lalibela, « la Jérusalem éthiopienne », connues pour ses 11 églises creusées dans la roche. L’Éthiopie, seul pays d’Afrique à n’avoir jamais été colonisé, est particulière et fascinante. Plus qu’un voyage, préparez-vous pour une aventure originelle qui ne ressemblera à aucune autre !

Other than humans, geladas that inhabit the Ethiopian highlands of the Simien mountains are the only terrestrial primates in the world. They are the last surviving species of the ancient grass eating primates. But their once prosperous population has been greatly reduced due to their biggest land dwelling competitor #gelada #geladas #ethiopia #simienmountains #simien #simienmountainsnationalpark #geladababoon #monkeys #primates #baboon #africa #eastafrica #africanwildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wildlifephoto #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeconservation #nature #naturephotography at Simien Mountains National Park Org

Ethiopia Adventure - Simien Mountains World Heritage Site. Also known as the roof of Africa with Ras Dejen at 4533 m. Oligocene basaltic Hawaiian type shield volcano covering more than 5000 sq m has beautiful dramatic escarpments and erosion in progress. Home to the endemic Ethiopian wolf, Gelada monkey and Walia Ibex which will be in danger of extinction if massive erosion due to extensive human land use practices and nature conservation are not addressed. #simienmountainsnationalpark #swissglobalpartners #waldeggnestltd at Simien National Park

when you go into the Ethiopian mountains - you have to have a scout. he was mine. nearly 80 and scouting and protecting the national park for 45 years. he didn’t speak English but we had a mutual understanding and he was very concerned that every photo I took was a good one. :) . . . . . . #ethiopia #peopleofinstagram #portraitphotography #simien #simienmountains #simienmountainsnationalpark #mountains #onbooooooom #agameoftones #throughthelens #natgeoyourshot #natgeo #travel #travelethiopia #africa #travelafrica #peopleofafrica #worldshotz #photographysouls #photographylover at Simien Mountains National Park

A male gelada monkey digs and feeds on the roots of dry grasses in the Simien Mountains in Northern Ethiopia. The gelada, only found in the highlands of Ethiopia, is also the only grass-eating monkey in the world. During the dry season when their preferred diet of green grasses is unavailable, they forage for tubers and herbs.

#wildlifewednesday Gelada Baboons high up in the Simien Mountains of Ethiopia 🇪🇹. Referred to as Bleeding-Heart Monkeys, this species of Old World Monkey is found only in the Ethiopian highlands and are identifiable by the large patch of bright red skin on their chests. 📸 2014 #africa #ethiopia #semienmountains #gelada #africageo #simienmountainsnationalpark #wildlifephotography #splendid_animals #nature #natgeoyourshot #canon #travel #amazinganimals at Simien Mountains National Park Org

Lots of these little Gelada monkey 🐒 along the way. They look at you cautiously but don’t seem too mind when you are near. They spend most of their days in large packs grooming each other and digging for grass roots. At night they climb down the side of the cliffs and sleep huddled together in the caves. . . . #simienmountains #simienmountainsnationalpark #gelada #geladababoon #monkey #hiking #travelethiopia #ethiopia #monkeybusiness #travel #adventure #ethiopia #ethiopia🇪🇹 #hiking #trekafrica #ethiopiantravel #travelafrica #summit #unesco #unescoworldheritage #hikingadventures #trekking #camping #besthikes #africa #africanadventure #wanderlust at Simien Mountains National Park Org

The Geladas we saw spent a large amount of time socialising by grooming each other...far more than any other monkey I have seen. I guess those lush coats need all the help they can get to stay in shape. #simien #simiens #simienmountains #simienmountainsnationalpark #gelada #geladas #africageo #monkey #nikon #nikonindia #natgeo #natgeowild #bbcearth #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetindia #baboon #wild #safari #nature #wildphotography #ethiopia #wildlife at Simien Mountains National Park Org

Ultimately we lucked out with closer views and sunnier weather. This big boy (Walia Ibex) came down to graze just above us, right as the sun burst through the dark clouds. These animals are classified as endangered by the IUCN (<600 remain)...numbers have fallen due to loss of habitat and poaching...but the Ethiopian Govt has taken steps in the recent past to stem the population fall. I hope they succeed. #africawildlife #natgeo #natgeowild #simienmountainsnationalpark #simiens #simienmountains #ethiopia #wild #safari #bbcearth #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetindia #africa #wildphotography #ibex #walia #waliaibex #antelope #endangered #africageo #iucn #nikon #nikonindia #yourshotphotographer at Simien Mountains National Park Org

Male Walia Ibex on a ridge high above, silhouetted against the stormy sky. I would’ve liked to get up close and personal, but the altitude (4200+ mtrs) and questionable fitness prevented me from lugging my camera gear up the slope. We were lucky it didn’t rain though!! #africawildlife #natgeo #natgeowild #simienmountainsnationalpark #simiens #simienmountains #ethiopia #wild #safari #bbcearth #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetindia #africa #wildphotography #ibex #walia #waliaibex #antelope #endangered #africageo @africageo #nikon #nikonindia #iucn #yourshotphotographer at Simien Mountains National Park Org

On several occasions we found troops of Gelada Monkeys curiously lined up on the road, picking at some invisible thing. Turns out some of the trucks going thru the park spill a precious cargo of minute grains along the road, which makes for an easy and nutritious meal. #africawildlife #natgeo #natgeowild #simienmountainsnationalpark #simiens #simienmountains #monkeys #geladas #gelada #ethiopia #blowdry #bleedinghearts #wild #safari #bbcearth #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetindia #africa #wildphotography #baboon #baboons at Simien Mountains National Park Org

Regarding the Geladas: I was told that recent research has removed them from the Baboon classification, and I should only refer to them as Gelada Monkeys going forward. It doesn’t make them any less photogenic though. We were fortunate to see 100s of them. #africawildlife #natgeo #natgeowild #simienmountainsnationalpark #simiens #simienmountains #monkeys #geladas #gelada #ethiopia #blowdry #bleedinghearts #wild #safari #bbcearth #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetindia #africa #wildphotography #baboon #baboons #natgeoyourshot #nikon #nikonindia #yourshotphotographer #africageophoto at Simien Mountains National Park Org

"We had a tour for 8 days starting in the Simien mountains (3 days trekking and sleeping in the tents followed by heart bleeding monkeys. Once back, we stopped one night in Gondar and went straight to Lalibela, for one day. Finally, our dream was to see the Afar region/depression and the volcanos. The hot bath in the middle of nowhere was absolutely stunning. A salty hot bath. We also had the chance to see a caravan with the camels. Was one of the most amazing experience, with unique people and incredible place to sleep in the middle of the nature, watching stars through the night." #Africa #FlyEthiopian #ethiopia #naturephotography #unescoworldheritage #unesco #volcano #hotestplaceonearth #danakil #dallol #tourist #toursim #landoforigins #travelgram #travelholic #traveltheworld #afar #ethiopia #simienmountains #simienmountainsnationalpark #flyethiopian Thank you, Noemie Borcard for sharing these incredible pictures! #LandOfOrigins #VisitEthiopia #FlyEthiopian
