Travelling to Southern Ethiopia you will visit wildlife and tribal communities as we follow the huge East African Rift Valley through the lush lakes region and on to the dry low-lying plains of the South Omo Valley just north of the Kenyan border. Visiting the various Omo tribes, observing their animist way of life and witnessing authentic customs and traditions, such as the bull-jumping and body scarification of the Hamer, the bizarre lip ornamentation of the Mursi and the intricate body-painting of the Karo, it may seem as if we’ve entered an Africa untouched by outside influences.Karo tribe Ethiopia
