Introduction

Ethiopia is composed of about 83 ethnic groups with 200 dialects. Based on the language they speak, they can be divided into Semitic, Cushitic, Nilotic, and Omotic stocks. Most of the tribes of interest are located in the Omo valley residing to the East and west part of the Omo river. This itinerary covers all the tribes that are to the east and West part of the Omo River, like Suram, Mursi, Hamer, Karo, Dasenech, Konso, Agnuak, Nuer, Ari, Benna, Dorze, etc. This itinerary is ideal for those travelers who want to cover all the tribes in the Omo valley deeper than the usual way. The itinerary gets travelers “off the beaten path” with an opportunity to learn about and interact with Ethiopia’s most unique cultural groups.
