The Simien Ecolodge is located on the roof of Africa, situated on an escarpment overlooking a high plateau and deep gorges below. The 20 individual bungalows are designed in the local architectural style of a "tukel" with conical thatched roof and insulated rock walls. Rooms have under-floor solar heating with private bath. The beds all have duvets and extra blankets are provided for the cold mountain environment. The lounge and dining room are located in a spacious common building with log fire place in the center where meals are served.
