This is an amazing opportunity to meet some of the more remote ethnic groups of the fascinatingly diverse areas surrounding the Omo River in South West Ethiopia. While the Omo Valley is an area which has been on the “tourist radar” for several years, the vast majority of visitors to the region find themselves unable to escape the “4WD circuit” which has arisen. visits some of the region’s better known tribes but also spends a day walking through the Mago national park meet the Mursi,Buska Mountains following a remote village trail and camping for two nights in the wild close to the villages of Buska and Kufur. Be warned, this is not an easy journey at times and there will be some basic conditions; it will surely be a journey to challenge the senses. Whilst in this fascinating region we aim to learn about the varied ethnic groups who inhabit the region - from the Mursi, renowned for their lip-plates, the Konso famous for their terraced farming to the Hamer famous for their ukuli

This is a very large park sharing a border with Omo National Park. While it contains a number of wild animals (elephants, gazelles, kudus, etc.), one has to be either lucky or be with an experienced guide to see them. Access roads are not in...More

Apparently we saw an elephant, but it was a grey blob through the brush so cannot be sure. Other than that we didn't see any animals at all. In fairness we didn't drive all the way through as it was evening and were just going...More

The park is reputed to be the home to animals but they must have been hiding when I was there in late February 2015. Actually there were lots of monkeys around our camp site during the night and during the morning. Still if you have...More

The thing about Mago is that majority of people just pass through to visit the Mursi tribes that live on the other side of the park. Also the grimm reality is that it's very dificult to spot wildlife in this park. Actually have one time...More
