Omo Valley Ethiopia Tribes Tour 11 Day

omo river regionOmo Valley Ethiopia Tribes Tour 11 Days


The indigenous Omo Valley Ethiopia tribes live lifestyles that are undisturbed by the outside world, and they acquire everything they need from nature.

The Omo Valley Ethiopia Tribes are not primitive; they simply have different beliefs and live happy and harmonious lives. We are still learning about them and their customs because many of them were unaware of the existence of the outside world until lately.

The Omo Valley has long been home to a variety of Afro-Asian and Nilo-Saharan tribes, including the Kara, Mursi, and Hamar, who represent some of the world’s greatest genetic differences.
