Omo and southern Ethiopia

Below Addis Ababa lies southern Ethiopia and the Omo Valley, home to the rift valley and its lakes, a wide variety of Ethnic groups and tribes people and the Bale Mountain National Park. A visit to the Omo region of Ethiopia is likely to leave you satisfied if you have a real interest in exploring the unique diversity of people and wildlife that is on offer here.

The natural beauty of southern Ethiopia is outstanding, home to the rift valley lakes, the Bale Mountains National Park in the Ethiopian highlands and some of the most magnificent views in the country. There are many endemic species to be found in the national park and in the relatively unexplored Harenna Forest, including the largest number of Ethiopian wolves, reptiles, lions, leopards and antelope.

The tribes in the region, including the Mursi, Hamer and Omo, are said to be some of the most beguiling across Africa.
