Tribes in Ethiopia
In order to discover tribes in Ethiopia you have to travel to the Omo valley, African’s tribal cultural heart land
The Omo Valley remains a unique place for encounters with the various ethnic groups of Ethiopia. With their ancestral cultures intact, the richness of these peoples will fill you with lifestyles as varied as the tribes themselves.
Living for centuries on the banks of the Omo River, light years away from our world, these primitive tribes welcome you with generosity and sincerity. Encounters with these tribes in Ethiopia will remain unforgettable.
The best time for a trip to the Omo Valley is the dry season which is between mid-October and mid-March.
Among the most representative, the Surma and their fight with sticks (Donga), the Mursi and their women with trays, the Nyangatom, the Hamer and bull jumping, the Karo, the Konso whose culture has been classified as World Heritage by the Unesco. Most tribes in the Omo Valley are experts in body painting, using locally available clays and plant pigments to trace fantastical designs on faces, torsos, arms and legs.
We take you into immersion, off the beaten track, closer to these amazing peoples, on a hike through the superb landscapes of the Konso region or simply to discover some of them. Choose your best way to live these meetings and we will build the trip of your dreams.
