     Itinerary  |   Trip Dossier  |   Dates/Prices  |   Photo Gallery     
On the way down the Lower Omo River we relax on sandy beaches and bathe in hot springs beneath the light of the moon and as the river broadens we begin to encounter the near stone-age tribal people who enthusiastically beckon us ashore with their broad smiles and basic sign language, decorated distinctively with their clay lip plates, elaborate hairstyles and hefty ear plugs. The Omo leads us to the heart of one of the most remote areas on the African continent, a breathtaking wilderness and home to our earliest ancestors.   Sunset over the Omo River, Ethiopia

Days 4 - 13
The Lower Omo sees the river larger and more remote, with the wildlife increasing in species and numbers. We will strategically navigate our way through pods of hippos in the pools, view waterbuck and hippo grazing at the river bank, glimpse the white and black flashes of Colobus monkeys swinging through the trees and hear the cries of the majestic fish eagles soaring overhead. On the last four days we begin to pass the villages of the Qwegu and Mursi tribes, the warriors and children beckoning to us from the bank. These tribal people live lives almost unchanged from their stone age past. The interaction between our group and the tribe’s people is a phenomenal experience for both parties
