Wild tribes of Ethiopia and National Park Bale Mountains

East bank of river Omo – 2 weeks

Ethiopia is one of the most beautiful countries in Africa. It has become safer, and now it is placed among the safe countries of Africa. There are many Christian monuments in the north of the country, and in the southwest of Ethiopia there is the highest concentration of aboriginal tribes in the entirety of Africa. You can meet ten of these tribes during this trip. Do not hesitate and come to see them while they still exist?

Day 1: Participants meet in the late evening hours in Adis Abbeba, the capital of Etiopia. There is a festive dinner in a renown and stylish restaurant, Karamora.

Day 2: Transit with hired landrover-type cars to a small city Arba Minch. During the trip we will take a bath in a small lake Langano, and stop in Shashemene for a fruit cocktail. Later we will dine on excellent fish from the Chamo lake.

Day 3: We will explore the customs of the Konso tribe, their „middle-age castles“, terraced fields, and canyon xxx.

Day 4: We will visit the Bana tribe, one of the less known Ethiopian tribes. During the transit we will taste the traditional „tach“ drink.
