Travelling among the eight different tribes of the Omo Valley provides an Africa refreshingly at odds with a safari chic fantasy that’s long promoted the continent as an up-market zoological park for well-heeled westerners.
This tour aims to engage with the Omo’s different ethnic groups and facilitate understanding of their centuries-old traditions. As Ethiopia develops, pressures brought by hydroelectrical projects and land appropriation threaten these lifestyles.
In a small way, to highlight the Konso region and the Omo Valley – already both recognised by UNESCO, may counter some of the negative developments and help preserve a unique African cultural heritage.
