Si chiamano Gelada, sono le scimmie più socievoli del mondo: si lasciano avvicinare, non cercano cibo (sono erbivore ) e sono del tutto disinteressate agli uomini. Vivono in Etiopia fino a 4.500 metri. Noi le abbiamo viste sui Monti Simien (maci siamo fermati a 4.000 metri ). • • #ethiopia #etiopia #simienmountains #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetitalia

Grazing Gelada baboons at sunset in the Simien Mountains. Featured in BBC Planet Earth, amazing to see for myself. These baboons are the only type of baboons to have adapted to grazing. . . . #latergram #throwback #baboons #gelada #amazingview #best_shots #nature #mountains #ethiopia #simienmountains #picoftheday #traveltips #beautifuldestinations #geladababoon #bbcplanetearth

Dive deep into Ethiopia's incredible culture and history on this magnificent 13-day odyssey! In the northeast of Ethiopia is the little visited region of Tigrai. Over the centuries a series of churches of differing sizes and architectural styles were carved into cliff-faces and rocky-outcrops, many still in use today. Whilst following Ethiopia’s classic northern circuit through Lake Tana’s monasteries, Gondar’s castles, the Simien Mountains and Lalibela’s monolithic churches, we get off the beaten path and explore this beautiful region in the heart of Ethiopian history. Starting from AED 11,450, spots are available from September to January. Get in touch with us to book! . .

We reserve Wednesdays for the wildlife. Today we are talking about one of our favorite canids, the most endangered canid in the world, and the most people endangered carnivore in Africa- the Ethiopian Wolf. . Found only in the subalpine regions of the Ethiopian Highlands, only around 400 adults are left in the wild. The populations are contained mainly in the Bale and Simien Mountain Ranges. . . Globe + Tribe is expanding our Conservation Journeys in 2020 and 2021 to include small group journeys to places where conservation dollars (and will! ) are key to survival of the world’s most vulnerable species. . . Interested in seeing this beautiful creature in the wild? Reach out to us or sign up to our newsletter for early access to our upcoming journeys of all kinds. . . . . . . . #globeandtribe #conservation #wolf #ethiopianwolf #ethiopia #conservationjourneys #revelindiscovery #traveltheglobe #adventure #adventuretravel #hiking #trekking #africa #wildlife #wildlifephotography #safari #simienmountains #balemountains #luxurytravel #luxurytraveladvisor #luxurysafari #endangeredspecies #iucnredlist

It wasn't that long ago... but can't help thinking about this #throwbackthursday in Ethiopia... The Simien mountains is one of the most spectacular places on the planet, and teeming with life. Unfortunately as with too many places it's also fragile and needs our protection, luckily the our buzzing friends are clever enough to find the best food sources 😍 . . . . . . . #honey #honeybees #bees #beesofinstagram #pollinators #pollen #insect #insects #meil #ethiopia #africa #mountains #macro #macropics #beekeeping #beekeeper #simienmountains #simienmountainsnationalpark #countryside

Dallol Danakil Ethiopia @i_love_love_holiday 🇪🇹ETHIOPIA: This unique landscape is the Danakil Depression - the hottest and most hostile place on Earth! There’s a lot of tectonic activity happening and the chlorine and sulfur is absolutely toxic - I had to be super careful of where to step while exploring the area! The Danakil Depression is located on the border of Ethiopia and Eritrea, and since both countries are in war with each other, you can only visit with armed military guards. As you can see, this place is not very touristic and not the easiest to visit, but it’s absolutely unique! Did you know it exists? Would you like to visit?🤔 #ethiopia #visitethiopia #ig_ethiopia #ig_africa #africaphotography #bestafricapics #travelingram #passionpassport #germanbackpacker #doyoutravel #loves_united_africa #travelethiopia #igs_africa #africantracks #ethiopiatourism #ethiopiaphotography #africanamazing #addisababa #danakildepression #dallol #simienmountains #danakil #mekele #reisefotografie #backpackerstory #backpackerseries #backpackingaddicts #backpacker_pics @outboundinafrica @natgeo_africa @africanamazing Website : http://kreyoliday.com/index.php/2019/11/09/ethiopia-accomodations/

Time for Ethiopia! The moment I crossed the Ethiopian border I realised what a completely different world I'd just entered. This video is from the Northern part of the country which has insanely beautiful mountains. Gondar was the first city I visited and finally I had the opportunity to hang out with some travelers and have my first cold beer in ages!

Gelada monkeys live only in the high mountain meadows of Ethiopia—an environment very unlike those of their forest- or savanna-dwelling primate relatives. This high-altitude homeland is replete with steep, rocky cliffs. With their short and stumpy fingers, geladas are adept rock climbers. At night, the animals drop over precipice edges to sleep huddled together on ledges. wwww.hikeethiopia.com /simienecotrekking.com by Sammy 🇪🇹 #geladamonkey #ethiopia #simienmountains #hiking #trekking #camping #visitethiopia

It seems everyone want to be in my pictures. I was trying to shoot the Gelada Baboon on the ridge when suddenly the other one appeared and just photobombed his friend. Luckily it made a very nice picture. Animal photography is always unexpected.

• 📸🏔 Plenty of Plateaus • Hiking through the many plateaus of the Simien Mountains would even leave Dutch weatherman Piet Paulusma clueless. One moment it’s warm and sunny, next thing you know it’s freezing cold and rain’s pouring down. The good thing is it makes for some pretty cool photos • #ethiopia #ethiopiatravel #simienmountains #sonyalpha #sonyphotography #sonyimages #sonya7iii #beautifuldestinations #earthpix #earthstoke #voyaged #TLPicks #travelphotography #travelanddestinations #divine_worldplaces #wonderful_places #agameoftones #visualsofearth #lensbible #earthofficial #letsgosomewhere #wowplanet #wondermore #amazing_shots #earthescope #hellofrom #livetheadventure #earthoutdoors #stayandwander #travellingthroughtheworld

Exploring the “Roof of Africa” (the Simien Mts ) far exceeded my expectations. It’s not the easiest to get here but so so worth it. #visitethiopia #simienmountains

[ #LandOfOrigins 7/9 🇪🇹] I’ve already told you about Gelada Baboons about 3 posts ago, but I just came across this pic on my camera I really liked for two reasons - first because it shows very clearly why they’re also known as ‘bleeding heart’ monkeys, and also because you can see a snapshot of their social interactions. • Gelada Baboons are herbivores, and they’re very chilled - if you want to see them, the best place are the Simien Mountains in Ethiopia! • Thabks @beblogilicious + @greatethrun for having invited me & @myadventuresacrosstheworld to come to this wonderful country 🙏 • • #runninginethiopia #ethiopia 🇪🇹 #ethiopians #geladamonkey #geladababoon #simienmountains #simienmountainsnationalpark #debark

[ #LandOfOrigins 2/9 🇪🇹] Any other wildlife lovers out there? Let me share 5 curious facts about Gelada baboons, endemic to the Ethiopian highlands! 🐵 they are the world’s most terrestrial primates, besides humans 🙈 they live in large, complex groups measuring up to 1200 individuals 🙉 they are the only grass-eating monkeys in the world 🙊 they are also known as ‘bleeding heart monkeys’ because of the bright red patch alpha males have on their chest 🐒 despite being known as Gelada baboons, they’re not actually baboons are all - they are the last surviving species of the Theropithecus genus of land-living monkeys. All other species went extinct millions of years ago • Would you like to see Gelada baboons? They are easy to spot on hikes through the Simien Mountains. @myadventuresacrosstheworld and I recently went on a 2-day hike there during our time in Ethiopia and loved it - our only regret is that we didn’t stay longer! • • Thanks @greatethrun + @beblogilicious for having us 🙏 • • #runninginethiopia #ethiopia 🇪🇹 #ethiopians #simienmountains #simienmountainsnationalpark #geladamonkey #geladababoon #simiennationalpark #visitethiopia #visitethiopia 🇪🇹
