Capture the memories of a lifetime in the Omo valley - Ethiopia’s largest nature sanctuary and rich in spectacular game and yet one of the least visited areas.

The lower Omo is home to an astonishing mix of small, contrasting ethnic groups uniquely known for their natural artistic impulses. You will also meet and greet some of the very colorful local tribes who live in this area. Marvel at the Great Rift Valley, Lakes Awassa, Shalla, Abiyata and Zeway, all part of a unique vacation package.

Ethiopia holiday is a fascinating insight into this friendly and unique country. You’ll learn about its history, culture and religious life, see its dramatic architecture left behind by ancient civilisations, and explore its diverse landscapes and wildlife.
