SimienEcoTours got awarded for Sustainability
Looking for a true sustainable travel experience to Ethiopia? SimienEcoTours is striving towards a responsible and more sustainable travel approach ever since our foundation in 2014 and recently got awarded with the Travelife Partner level standard. With small steps we walked on this new path for Ethiopian tourism. There has been not so much understanding about Corporate Social Responsibility in tourism including environment, biodiversity, human rights and labour relation when we started, but nowadays SimienEcoTours is on a good way to offer truly better travel adventures.

Clean-up initiative in Danakil Depression
Many of our destinations facing more severe waste problems due to a lack of awareness of local service providers and careless travelers and tour companies that leave behind their non-composable waste. However, it could be so easy to reduce waste while traveling by training drivers and guides accordingly and making guests aware of the problem and offer them plastic-free alternatives. SimienEcoTours strives towards greener tours. Ever since it has been one of our principles with concrete measures and initiatives we support. Another great achievement these days is the support of the clean-up in Danakil Depression that we support.

Ethiopia is known for its stunning religious holidays and as traveling is not so easy these days, we would love to share some impressions from our Easter.
