An amazing search for the Ethiopian wolf

Last week I went with Armaye to look for the Ethiopian wolf in Bale Mountains. It was a great trip through a beautiful and rugged landscape. Armaye had arranged everything fantastically: a beautiful route, good food, and, if you need it, all the camping gear. Armaye is clearly passionate about what he does. He knows a lot about all the animals in the park and loves being out there. It was a great pleasure to go on this trip with him and I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to go on a little adventure in Bale (or anywhere else in Ethiopia).

And yes, we found the wolf!

A breath-taking, amazing and memorable experience

If you want to discover the remote Bale Mountains with the unique afroalpine wetlands and the endemic flora and fauna, particularly the Ethiopian Wolf, and the breath-taking landscape then you are with Armaye and his team in the best hands. He will make your trekking trip to an amazing and memorable experience.

The communication with Armaye was very easy, by email and whatsapp as well and the response of countless questions regarding the tour was very quick and helpful as well. He and his team are very kind, knowledgeable and helpful. Everything was well organized and went smooth. The guys are very professional and experienced and you can absolutly trust them. Myself i got so excited about this trekking tour that i will come back again to experience the Bale Mountains after the rainy season, when everything is green and flowering and i will do it with Armaye again, no doubts. I can highly recommend the trekking tour and Armaye Tours as well – you will never regret.

Enthusiastic, knowledgeable tour operator offering good value for money.

Outstanding tour operator. Hard-working and dedicated to maximizing the customer's experience. Tour tailored to the participants' interests. Excellent, responsive communication. Thoroughly reliable. Tour was excellent. Approximately 60 mammal species seen, an impressive total for Ethiopia. There are few tour operators with whom I have been as impressed as I was with Armaye.

Amazing tour for Ethiopia

Armaye was patient, professional and responsive in the whole process. He answered a lot of detailed questions from me and made effort to tailor it to our needs. When Covid hit, we had to end our trip early and he was also very kind to refund part of the cost. Our driver was also super nice, always very patient and constantly thinking about our needs during the whole tour. They both speak great English and very easy to communicate to.

Excellent Tour to Awash and Doho

We had a great time with Armaye and driver Kinfir. They took great care of us, taking us to delicious restaurants, and generally making everything easy and smooth. We loved the safari drives in Awash National Park and Aledeghi Reserve, and soaking in the hot springs at Doho Lodge. We highly recommend the tour for a great weekend trip outside of Addis to relax and enjoy nature!

A wonderful experience, very well organised, helpful to solve problems and exquisite service

We looked mainly for nature and they offered us an itinary that fulfilled our expectations and also showed us the wonders of their culture and society. The company and advice of the guide and driver was great.
We are a small family of three and our child became a very good friend of them. A trip to repeat, no doubts

Armaye Ethiopia Tours - Above and beyond all expectations!

Armaye was recommended by good friends when we were planning a trip to Ethiopia, and I would recommend his company to anyone interested in an independent tour of this very beautiful country. From first contact we found Armaye exceptionally professional, his knowledge and advice to be immensely helpful, and as soon as we met at the airport - with the wonderful Kinfe - our driver for the trip, we knew we were with friends. Seeing Ethiopia through their eyes, guiding us throughout with enthusiasm and humour, really made our visit so very special. Along the way we were introduced to local guides and leaders and enjoyed many adventures - taking time on Lake Tana visiting the monasteries, seeing hippos bathing! Walking in the Simien mountains with some truly amazing views and time spent watching Gelada monkeys. Castles in Gondar; the holy city of Axum and it’s magnificent stelae, taking part in the Mehelela procession by candlelight before dawn was so very well worth the early start, an experience that will remain in my memory forevermore. On to the rock churches in the Gheralta mountains and Lalibela, with an overnight stay camping near the Danakil depression. Just incredible, highlight after highlight, and throughout we were looked after like family by Armaye and Kinfe. Thank you both for everything you did for us, you remain affectionately in my heart and I do hope that one day we will be able to return and visit again with you.
