Omo Valley

Let’s visit Omo Valley if you would like to be greeted with some of the world’s oldest human remains. The Lower Valley of the Omo is located in the remote southwest corner of Ethiopia, close to the border with Kenya.

Omo Valley

Today, the Omo Valley continues to provide a glimpse of ancient ways of life, thanks to more than a dozen tribes that live along the banks of the Omo River. Famed for their body adornments – which include lip plates, scarification, and face paint – the tribes are a huge tourist attraction.

The Konso and Dorze people’s way of life is also fascinating; little influenced by tourism, life in this spectacular region of the Rift Valley revolves around market days, traditional ceremonies, farming, and weaving. Unlike the Omo Valley, there are community guesthouses and workshops, providing an authentic immersion into these welcoming yet little known cultures.
