Perched on the edge of a steep slope, Limalimo Lodge provides elegant accommodations and access to the beautiful Simien Mountains National Park.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of twelve boutique rooms scattered over the grounds in the shade of the trees. There are twin, double, triple, and family rooms available. Each room has floor to ceiling windows looking out onto the mountains and comes with an en suite bathroom with double vanities, a shower, and flush toilet. The hotel has been described as eco-chic and works hard to sustain the environment by using rammed earth, wood, and thatch to build the rooms.
The lodge is situated on an escarpment in the Simien Mountains National Park. The park comprises eighty-five square feet of land, most of it gentle highland ridges reaching almost 12,000 feet above sea level. The landscape is covered with grasslands and dotted with isolated trees including the Erica arborea and the bizarre giant lobelia. These high plateaus often end abruptly in deep escarpments. Walis ibex thrive in these mountains. Other animals living here include the Simien fox, Ethiopian wolf, gelada baboon, the klipspringer, bush buck, and several birds of prey. Due to the rareness of many of these species, the area is one of conservation as well as being a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
