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

    Tour guide recommendation for Bale
    04 December 2016, 16:03
    What a great time we have had with our tour
    guide Armaye,( he
    was knowledgeable and always willing to
    help. My wife and I booked this tour online a
    month ago and we had quick and prompt
    reply from Armaye who was our guide at
    Bale Mountains. We read great reviews on
    trip advisor and that helped us to choose
    and book with him. Everything was well
    planned and assisted , we always felt safe
    and well taken care of. Also we used him to
    organize transportation from Addis to Bale
    The Bale Mountains are spectacular,
    incredible scenery and wildlife. The
    mountains are stunning and quite unlike any
    other mountains I have visited. In the
    morning everything is covered with frost so
    warm clothes recommendable ho have. But
    minor inconveniences are offset views of the
    surrounding landscape , endemic plants and
    huge number of animals and birds. We have
    seen hundreds of Mountain Nyala’s and
    reedbucks, Ethiopian Wolves and several
    endemic birds. It’s a perfect place for
    trekkers or birdwatchers.

    We just returned from a tour to Ethiopia
    organized by Muzeyen Turke and his
    company Trek Ethiopia
    ( ). For our group of
    four, including a ten-year old, Muzeyen
    organized a private itinerary including Harar
    and Sof Omar. The highlight was by far the
    trekking and exploring in the Bale Mountains
    and the Harenna forest.
    Despite significant pressure on the
    ecosystem due to unsustainable farming and
    settlements in the National Park, we saw lots
    of wildlife and of course also the unique
    Ethiopian wolves. Muzeyen used to work as
    a wolf monitor and was therefore able to
    provide lots of information about their
    behavior and habitat. He was also very
    flexible when we suggested a change in the
    planned itinerary.
    Consider booking an additional horse for
    your backpacks or if you are trekking with
    children as the altitude of 4,000m / 13,000ft
    on the Sanetti Plateau requires several days
    of acclimatization.
