Ethiopia Tour to Omo Valley

 

Tour Overview

The under list packages focuses on a tribal adventure travel trip, overland into the depths of the Rift Valley, visiting amazing rift valley lakes, witnessing the wildlife and meeting the local tribal people. A word of warning is necessary here. This is definitely an adventure holiday and you must be aware of that we will take you through regions with rundown infrastructure and few western facilities. Roads can be absolutely appalling and you should be prepared to forgo your home comforts. But the rewards of this kind of overland expedition are immense.We will travel into one of the most unchanged tribal regions in Africa and meet peoples who lifestyles have changed very little in the last two hundred years. At Konso we will explore the Konso tribal culture and villages before heading deep into tribal southern Ethiopia towards the Omo Valley. This is very remote, seldom visited regions, which are home to the Hamer, Mursi, Surma, Bodi, Karo, Nyangatom, Dasenech, Benna, Tsemai, Erbore and more tribal people. The bull jumping of the Hamer people, the stick fight of the Surma tribe and other interesting tribal ceremonies and vibrant tribal market can be visited. Traveling overland allows you to explore regions like this.
