About this Tour:
This is a real adventure expedition that starts in the still largely unknown Western part of Ethiopia, where not only the last rainforests of the country are found, but also where the famous Arabica coffee is said to have its origin. Few travelers would expect such lush vegetation in Ethiopia at all. We continue travelling to the southwest to visit the Surma tribe, which still lives in almost total isolation. We then cross into Omo National Park and get to know many more fascinating tribes of the Omo Valley. We drive until the shores of Lake Turkana on the Kenyan border, where seclusion and pure adventure await us. On our way back to Addis Ababa we have many more highlights ahead of us, such as meeting the Mursi tribe in Mago National Park, the Konso region, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or the wild nature around Arba Minch, to name just a few. This is a truly spectacular trip.
