South Ethiopia Omo Valley Tours

The beautiful Omo Valley is home to an exciting mix of many small and distinctive tribal groups. Among others, we find the Karo, the Mursi and the Hamer-all of who have retained their own unique customs and traditions. Lifestyles are as varied as the tribes themselves. Lacking any material, culture and artifacts common to other cultures, these tribes find unique ways in which to express their artistic impulses. Both the Surma and the Karo, for example, are experts at body painting, using clays and locally available vegetable pigments to trace fantastic patterns on each other's faces, chests, arms, and legs. These designs are created purely for fun and aesthetic effect, each artist vying to outdo his fellows. In this captivating region, you are privileged to witness age-old customs and rituals, learning of the symbolism that remain an integral part of everyday life, it’s absolutely a unique wilderness.
