The Omo Valley

Named after its geographical feature and the famous Omo River, the Omo Valley is a spectacularly beautiful area with diverse attractions, ecosystems, cultures and languages. The natural beauty of the Omo River Valley is unsurpassed. The diverseness of the people, the languages, the traditions and the landscape (in a comparatively small area) is unequalled anywhere on this vast continent. The untainted attire and intrinsic majesty of the people living in an age-old traditional manner will touch the hearts of all who come here and the images will stain the visitors’ memory long after they return home.
