• Ethiopia - Regular Departures To Omo Valley Cultural Route

    Cultural Tour Highlights

    Visiting the peoples of the South Omo (cultural route) is an enriching and educational experience. Up to two dozen tribes inhabit the area and we visit villages and local markets in the hope of meeting many of them. The most famous are the Mursi, renowned for their clay lip plates, but there are many other vivid encounters. Whilst the emphasis of the trip is on the people, we also visit the Rift Valley Lakes with their beautiful scenery and fertile surroundings, and we are likely to see a wide range of mammals in Nechisar national Park.
