Impressive afro-alpine ecosystem I did a 6 days/ 5 nights tour through Bale mountains with Armaye's tour company. From pick-up to drop-off at Goba airport everything was taken care, organized and provided. A very pleasant and hassle-free experience. Armaye is a great guide and companion along the way, knowledgeable about local flora and fauna, open minded and interested. Always good for a chat. We spotted basically all wildlife that roams around at these eco-systems, without big effort. That was great. The afro alpine ecosystem is just stunning, though a closer look at the National Park and general situation is worrying. Livestock everywhere, signs of overgrazing all around. I highly recommend to do this trip. Armaye can provide many different options and surely he will find a tailor-made solution which fits your expectations and needs.

Beautiful 5 night/ 6 day trekking through BMNP- a must see in Ethiopia! My wife and I booked a 5 night/ 6 day tour through Armaye at Bale Mountains Eco Trekking Tours and the trip exceeded our expectations! While planning our trip, Armaye was quick to respond to inquiries and emails. He also provided detailed packing lists and information on what to expect during our itinerary. Our guide, Ewol, was incredibly knowledgeable about the region, flora, and fauna we encountered along our journey. We saw over a dozen endemic Ethiopian wolves, birds of prey, and other various endemic species which made the trip incredibly special. As we were trekking through the different biomes, we heard all about the importance of protecting this region for the watershed and migratory birds. Each day we were amazed at the beauty and vast splendor or BMNP. Ewol, along with the chef and porters, made sure we had a comfortable camp and meals each day. They even went above and beyond to make our Christmas celebration at camp memorable with a lovely campfire and special dinner. We truly loved our stay in the park and are already planning to go back soon...booking with Bale Mountain Eco Trekking Tours, of course!

Great experience in Bael Mountains - 4 days/3 nights I strongly recommend Bale Mountiains Eco Trekking tours. I had 4 days trekking (with the drive in Sanetti plateau on the last day) , it was supposed to be organized for group of 4 people but in the end I was the only participant. Still everything went according to the original plan without any changes. The contact with Armaye is really great comparing to other trekking comapnies, he was responding immediately to all my e-mails/phone calls. Organization of trekking was perfect, my guide Awel has excellent knowledge about flora and fauna of the national park, we managed to spot in total 5 ethiopian wolves (which was not so obvious in that period). Food prepared by the cook was very good, I really enjoyed the company of all the guys sitting next to the fireplace in the evenings. I would choose Amaye's company again next time!

Great time in Bale Mountains with Armaye We did the four days / three nights Bale Mountains tour with Armaye and team, starting from Dinsho with a well balanced mix of driving and hiking. We had a great time and service! Armaye explained and showed us his home area and we were lucky to see the Ethiopian Wolf, antelopes and birds of prey!! Amazing mountains and we would definitely book with Armaye again!

Great hassle-free last minute trip to Bale in the Oromia-region! Last-minute changes in our travel schedule due to protests in the Harar-region of the country forced us to change plans and Armaye and his entourage saved our trip! Getting there and back: Armaye arranged last-minute transportation from our guesthouse doorstep to the entrance of the national park at Bale and back with excellent driver and allround tourguide Daniel! ( +251911648676 ) ->please contact him and send him my regards, Toby from Antwerp, Belgium and Johan from Kruishoutem, Belgium. The tours: Apart from seeing, experiencing and even tasting the Oromia-hospitality on the way there, the best was yet to come! We did a small hike the first day to get used to the altitude, once accustomed the next day, we were blessed to see two (!) Ethiopian wolves, a bunch of other wildlife pointed out by guide Houssein. My final tip is to foodwise go with the Eco-trekkings flow, we had the best Tibs in Ethiopia and tasted the freshest honey with bees buzzing over our shoulders. If you want to experience Bale mountains, contact local expert Armaye instead of the Addis tour-companies. He will most definitely take good care of you at a fair price👍 Contact: +251912825450

Bale Mountains - 6 days, 5 Nights We would highly recommend a trek in the Bale Mountains using Armaye's tour company services. Our trip was over 6 days/5 nights with a pick up and drop off in Addis Ababa, all arranged by email whilst we were in Ethiopia. Organisation was faultless, communication extremely responsive and the overall experience was wonderful. Armaye is passionate about the Bale area and this comes through across his whole team (driver, chefs, horsemen). The variety of terrain from high plateau to tropical rain forest provided different scenery each day and at times we felt like we were the only people in the park (the wilderness camp at Wassema was especially beautiful). The walking itself was very manageable (we are in our mid to late 50s) with no major ascents/descents. Wildlife was abundant and Armaye somehow managed to spot a serval from about 800 metres away! If you have the chance to visit Bale, go....you are unlikely to regret it!

Possibly my best 4 days in Ethiopia! Bale Mountains National Park is possibly the most underrated attraction in Ethiopia for reasons I cannot understand. This place just boasts a wealth of surprises that can't be found anywhere else! If you're on a budget, open to an adventure of a lifetime, and looking for an all-inclusive hassle-free tour of the Bale Mountains, then Armaye is your man! Weeks before the tour, Armaye was very responsive to my inquiries, even the simplest ones, and made sure that I got all the information that I need. I joined a 5D/4N group tour for 3 people that he and his team organized and executed so well! On Day 1, I was welcomed by our guide, Awol, who spoke very good English and had excellent knowledge of the National Park (he knows so much that he's almost a walking encyclopedia about the Bale Mountains). I have to give a special mention to the cooks who prepared very tasty and excellent quality vegetarian meals (yes, I went vegetarian for 4 days and never once did I crave for meat because the food was just that good)! Logistics-wise everything was taken care of by the crew; from assembling and disassembling the camping gear (which were, by the way, branded stuff and in perfect condition), carrying the heavy backpacks with horses, etc. Bottomline, they made sure that the tour-goers were just focused on the tour activities and not worry about anything else!

Camping & Fly Fishing in Bale/Dinsho Armaye is the only guy you should trust to explore Bale/Dinsho. He was able to organize my camping trip and connect me with the best Fly Fishing guide in town named Taha. Armaye took care of every single detail and was with me every step of the way. Everything he did met my high standards. The tents were the highest quality and he provided warm sleeping bags, which ended up being very important because it happened to rain a lot. He has the best drivers, the best cooks, and the all around team. If you are heading to Bale and don't work with him, you will have missed out on meeting a wonderful person and a very knowledgeable guide.

5 Excellent days Organised by Armaye and his great team Our trip to Bale Mountains was beyond our wildest imaginations. We highly recommend Armaye Negalign as tour guide and organiser! Armaye commands expert knowledge of the park and the wildlife. He speaks fluent English and is pleasant, friendly, and has a great sense of humor. He is passionate about the park and ensured we had an optimal experience. Not only did we see the amazing Ethiopian Wolves, we also were treated to many birds and other mammals. While you are passing through this beautiful region, do not hesitate to embark on a trek in the Bale mountains. On our 5 days trek we were surrounded by our guide, attentive guards and a team dedicated to the management of the camp, and the preparation of meals. The trek is accessible, and the beautiful landscapes they are really worth seeing. The level of service was fantastic and they exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend the services of Bale Mountains Eco Trekking Tours and you can rest assured you are leaving yourself in the best possible hands.

Beautiful Bale Mountains We did a 4 day/3 night hiking trip with Bale Mountains Eco Trekking Tours. They were very accommodating at organising this just a few days before, helpful and responsive. They offered many different kinds of trips for different interests and budgets. The hiking was beautiful and we were fortunate to see wolves and antelope and lots of animals. The trip that we did meant that we saw lots of habitats in the national park, woodlands, grasslands, and the plateau. It was very wet at some times during our trip so be prepared! Beriso our guide was very knowledgable and interesting to talk with. The food was very tasty and there was lots of it! Abu is a great chef. Highly recommended!
