Description

The eastern and Omo Valley, in the south of Ethiopia, is home to a fascinating range of distinct tribal groups, isolated from the rest of the world for centuries and still very much following their own cultures and customs. On this trip we set off using 4WD transport to explore this eastern and Southern Omo Valley of Ethiopia, stopping at local markets and visiting villages, driving past the lakes of Africa’s Great Rift Valley and looking for the wealth of wildlife that this little-explored region contains. Travel here is not for the faint-hearted - but one of the most exciting experiences that the continent offers. ‘Off the beaten track’

Tour Highlights

  • Explore the fascinating cultures of the indigenous tribes of the Omo Valley in a modern, air-conditioned 4WD
  • Visit the Gurage, the Karo, the Dorze, the Hamer, the Woito, the Konso, the Mursi, the Arbore, the Tsemay and the Gelab people in their villages
  • Get to know the traditional lifestyle, colorful dresses and strange rituals, like inserting clay plates in their lower lips, amazing hairstyles, body-painting or scaring
  • Come close to giant crocodiles and hippos on Lake Chamo
  • Shop the stalls of Merkato, the largest open-air market in Africa
  • Traditional Ethiopian farewell dinner with “coffee ceremony” and traditional dances of the different ethnic groups
