Lost Tribes of Ethiopia
*** From 27 January 2019 this trip will no longer visit the Mursi & Karo tribes but rather the lesser known Ari & Daensch tribes to give you a more authentic experience. Further the itinerary will decrease to 9 days and will finish on arrival at Addis Ababa airport for your onward flight, or with a group transfer to your post trip accommodation. The 08 Jan 2019 trip will remain on the current 10 day itinerary. ***
