Gondar is a city in the North West of Ethiopia, near the border with Eritrea and Sudan. A visit to Gondar great when combined with a day tour to the Simien Mountains National Park.
The Simien Mountains National Park is situated about 130 km North East of Gondar and known for its amazing landscape and beautiful flora and fauna.
You can also find a total wild population of Gelada Baboons which are amazing and if you're lucky will let you come near them to shoot some pictures.
Gondar itself is known for its many ruins like the Fasilides Castle which is part of the UNESCO heritage site of the Fasil Ghebbi fortress and a very popular touristic attraction.
Did you enjoy Gondar and the Simien Mountains NP and have you been on a holiday in Gondar, Ethiopia?
