"Ayuba was amazing! I've traveled extensively in Ethiopia, and he was, without a doubt, the best guide I've had. He not only was great at identifying and describing all of the plant and wild life in the park, but also was very helpful with the logistics of the whole trip. Ayuba helped us to buy all of the food we needed, organize our gear and planned an incredible itinerary that spanned a diverse range of the park, from highlands to lowland forest. As a group of fairly inexperienced hikers/campers, Ayuba made sure we moved at a good pace and helped us with anything we needed at the campsites. He's also an all-around great guy, you can't go wrong with Ayuba!"
