Welcome to Sammy Kassaw’s website! Sammy is an official tour guide for the Simien Mountains National Park in Ethiopia. He based in Debark and has worked for the National Park as an independent official tour guide since 2009, leading many treks with people from all over the world.
The Simien Mountains national park offers some of the most incredible landscape and views in Africa. As a World Heritage Site it is well protected and home to unique species such as the Gelada Monkeys, Ethiopian wolf and Wallia Ibex. There are many ways to see the mountains, however all visitors must be accompanied by a tour guide when in the national park as part of the strict rules set up to protect the beautiful and complex ecology of the mountains.
Sammy offers many different trekking / sightseeing options to suit individual needs. He has also lead organized trips outside of the park to Lalibela, and the Danakil Depression in the North. From this website you can view previous hikes, information about the Simien mountains, tours that are offered, and of course Sammy’s contact information to organise tours.
You can see reviews in posts throughout this site and also on my trip advisor page. You can also find reviews from many of my past clients on the trip advisor Simean National Park page by searching for “Sammy” in the reviews section.
