11 Day | Omo River Safari to Ethiopia

Country Ethiopia
Theme Photography; Expedition Collection from Mark Nolting; City Touring; Set Departure; Remote; Culture
Time of Year September
Budget From $8,150
Duration 11 Days

For a cultural experience beyond words (and almost beyond belief), Ethiopia tops our list as the most impressive in the world. Ethiopia has what are considered by many as the most primitive tribes on earth in the Omo River Valley, a visit to this country will truly take you back thousands of years in time.

2021 Departure Date - Sep 04, 2021

With a country as large and diverse as Ethiopia with so many highlights on offer, it can be overwhelming trying to fit as much in as possible in an attempt to “see it all”. With this in mind, we try to customize itineraries to get an in depth look into a culture and history that dates back to the very origins of civilization and where the more well-known and impressive attractions are visited, with a couple of hidden gems thrown in.
