Simien Lodge wins Silver prize at the African Responsible Tourism Awards
‘Simien Lodge, the highest hotel in Africa at 3260 meters altitude in the Simien Mountain National Park in Ethiopia, has just been awarded the Silver prize in the African Responsible Tourism Awards.’
‘These awards are presented annually at World Travel Market in Cape Town, South Africa to the tourism enterprises that show good practices in their various fields. The competition was tough and there were originally 60 companies long-listed. This was reduced to 24 on a short-list just before the opening of the event on the 6th April.’
‘Simien Lodge received the award for their work supporting the community in the Simien Mountains. Over the years this has varied from the donation of a brand new bus to the local woreda for transport in the mountains to the manufacture of hundreds of desks for local schools. The lodge has encouraged the donation medical equipment supplied by generous tourists including an ophthalmic microscope for cataract surgery to Gonder hospital.’
