The Simien mountain National Park in Ethiopia is a treasure unknown to many.
Its Spectacular landscapes provide an exceptional habitat for a unique flora and fauna, including several threatened and endemic species.
The book tells a personal story of an eight-day adventure through the park and is the fulfilment of a promise to the beautiful souls we encountered and our best efforts to capture the beauty and spirit of this land.
We became enchanted with the Simien Mountains, perhaps you will too.
