An encounter with extraordinary people in a unique part of Ethiopia
Travelling to South Omo is like stepping into the pages of National Geographic.
The region is inhabited by twenty or so tribes each with their own identity and each fiercely traditional. Perhaps the most famous of these are the Mursi, renowned for the clay plates women insert into their lower lips but we will encounter other fascinating tribal people who adorn themselves with jewellery, died and elaborate hair-dos, body paint and scarification.
Whilst this trip focuses on the villages, markets and people of the Omo Valley, we also visit Rift Valley lakes and go wildlife-viewing in Nechisar and Mago Parks.
What makes this trip responsible?
Many children from disadvantaged families in Ethiopia do not have access to a balanced diet. Exodus’ partners, The Kindu Trust, amongst other projects, run a youth club in Gondar where children can get supplementary education and participate in extracurricular activities. The aim of this project is to provide a hot nutritious meal, once weekly, for these children which will help in their growth, learning capacity and development.
