Omo River Cultural Expedition
Duration: 5 days
Area:Omo River Valley, Kara (or Karo) and Nyangatom (or Bume) villages, Hamar settlements, Turmi, The Buska Mountains
Style: African cultural expedition
Nowhere in the world is as well-endowed with traditional and tribal cultures than Ethiopia. Our cultural expeditions take you into this remote region of the African continent where you will be immersed in an array of tribal lifestyles. Many are like living museums, where we will enjoy 'street level culture' and where it is often hard to draw the line between participant and observer.
Join us on the most amazing cultural expedition of your life. You will see customs, cultures and lifestyles totally unaffected by the western world and you will feel nothing but sheer privilege at being able to travel amongst them.
