Bale Mountains guide

We don’t normally allow guide recommendations on this website, but this one from Addis Eats’s Eliza Richman, a co-author of the Bale Mountains NP guide booklet, is worth including:

I wanted to recommend Muzeyen as a guide for the Bale Mountains. I’ve travelled with him several times and he’s so knowledgeable, kind and hard working (and funny!) He’s always arranged everything for us before we even arrive and is an unbelievable guide in the park. He used to work with the Ethiopian Wolves so he knows their territories very well. You can see more information about him on his website: or you can reach him directly at 251 913 28 25 97 or at

    my clients review About The Guidebook
    The Bale Mountains National Park
    (BMNP) stretches across the upper
    reaches of Ethiopia’s southern
    highlands, shaped by volcanic
    activity over 10 million years ago. It’s
    an incredibly diverse landscape of
    heather-strewn Afro-alpine moorland,
    grasslands, cloud forests and juniper
    woodlands – which collectively host a
    variety of endemic birds and animals.
    The most notable of these is
    undoubtedly the Ethiopian wolf –
    Africa’s rarest carnivore, and the
    world’s rarest canid. Their population
    has dwindled to below 500, and the
    wolves are isolated to Ethiopia’s last
    remaining pockets Afro-alpine
    Getting a glimpse of the wolves,
    though, is surprisingly easy, and the
    BMNP is probably the best place in
    the country to do it. This guide offers
    a trekking itinerary that maximises
    your chances of finding and
    observing these rare and fascinating
    animals, as well as providing
    information about the park’s few
    accommodation options. There’s also
    a bit of info about the Ethiopian Wolf
    Conservation Programme (EWCP),
    which is working to conserve the
    wolves and their unique habitats.
    Local Knowledge & Cool Perks
    I recently spent a week trekking
    through the Bale Mountains, with the
    aim of spending as much time as
    possible observing the wolves. I was
    accompanied by Muzeyen Turke, who
    spent years monitoring the wolves
    for the EWCP, and knew each pack
    and their general whereabouts like
    the back of his hand. He now runs
    his own tour company, and is
    available as a guide. If you would
    like to get in touch with him, his
    email address is: muze1977@
    Or, have a look at his website:
    Muzeyen organised all of the
    logistics for our trek, including the
    route, camping and cooking
    equipment, food and pack horses.
    Though we chose to walk, the trek
    can also be done on horseback.
    About the Author
    I was born and raised in Kenya, and
    have formed a serious bond with this
    particular corner of Africa. Though
    I’m currently working as a
    development consultant in Nairobi,
    I’ve also spent the last few years
    contributing to a weekly travel
    column in one of Kenya’s local
    papers, called Going Places. Though
    it’s mainly focused on Kenya, I’ve
    also written about my travels further
    afield, including South East Asia and,
    most recently, southern Ethiopia.
