Highlight

The Omo Valley lies in the southern Ethiopia. The tour takes you through Mago National park. The Karo, Mursi and Hamar Ethnic groups live primarily as pastoralists near the Omo River. The Mursi are known for their lip plates, earlobes and stick fighting (Donga). The Hamar women are striking; wearing beautiful colorful beads and goatskins, ornate necklaces, and metal bangles around their wrist and ankles and crowns of long dread-lock braids covered in ocher, also famous for their ritual Bull jumping. The Karo tribe is known for elaborate body painting. These ethnic groups and their unique symbolic cultures are fascinating.
