Tour to Omo Valley and Harar 17 Days
The eastern and Omo Valley of Ethiopia, is home to a fascinating range of distinct tribal groups, isolated from the rest of the world for centuries and still very much following their own cultures and customs. On this trip, we drive overland using 4WD Land Cruisers to explore the eastern and Southern Omo Valley of Ethiopia, stopping at local markets and visiting tribal villages, driving past the lakes of Africa’s Great Rift Valley and looking for the wealth of wildlife that this little explored region contains and offers to adventurers. Travel overland cruise through this ancient land is not for the faint hearted but one of the most rewarded experiences that the continent offers ‘’off the beaten track’’.
