Ethiopia Untouched

Run by: Intrepid

Reference number: YOSE

From: £1200.00

Often overlooked, Ethiopia’s spectacular nature reserves and diverse tribal communities are ripe for exploration. Go off the beaten track and visit remote tribes in the Omo Valley and try to spot crocodiles as they bask off the shores of Lake Chamo. Get up close and personal with the people and the nature of Ethiopia – a place hidden from the rigorous modernity of the modern world. NEW UPDATES FOR 2019 In 2019 this itinerary will no longer camp in Mago NP or visit the Mursi tribe but rather have more time in Jinka to learn about injerra making and local life. This is due the exchange of money for photographs and the negative impact this can have on both the community and their children who skip school for this exchange. The length of the trip, day of departure and start & finish point will remain unchanged. Highlights/r/n
  • Visit the Dorze people and immerse yourself in a culture well known for their unique bee-hive houses and colourful woven fabrics.
  • Take a boat trip on Lake Chamo for a chance spotting of the resident hippos, thousands of Nile crocodiles, rich bird life and local fishermen.
  • Meet a Mursi tribe and learn about their unique traditions of extending their lower lips and brutal stick fighting.
  • Visit Hamer villages made entirely of mud with very few outside influences and, if you're lucky, perhaps see an initiation bull jumping ceremony.
