The Simien Mountains National Park is located in northern Ethiopia and boasts the fourth highest peak in Africa - Ras Dashen - at 4,550 meters (14,928 feet.) The park is home to several animals found only in Ethiopia including the Walia Ibex, the Ethiopian Wolf, and the Gelada (a species of monkey.) The park offers spectacular trekking opportunites inclusing ascents of Ras Dashen. Africa's highest lodge is located inside the park and a new lodge has recently opened nearby.
