TRIBES OF THE OMO VALLEY - 8 Days PHOTOGRAPHY EXPEDITION

By WALK IN ETHIOPIA TOUR AND TRAVEL
About
This is a small group photographic expedition to the remote tribes of the Omo Valley to witness some of the last remaining authentic tribes on the African continent. These photographic expeditions will take you on the east side of the Omo River. On this photo trip you will visit the Konso, Hamer, Kara, and Nyangatom tribes. You will spend a couple of days visiting their villages and intermingling with the different tribes, learning their lifestyle, attending ceremonies and rituals, and taking photos. There will be enough time with good light on different days to photograph their day-to-day activities, their body and face painting, herding of cattle, farming, and more. Being isolated from the fast-moving world because of its remote location for thousands of years, the Omo Valley is truly a haven for anthropologists and photographers looking for a unique photographic opportunity to a lesser-known and seldom-photographed region.

        SEEING ADDIS ABABA DURING EASTER
        I arrived in Ethiopia during the Coptic Easter holiday, but in spite of this, the tour organisers made a good effort to show me the city. Entoto was impressive, but Marcato was scanty due to the season. I had a bonus visit to the AU Headquarters. I also met Lucy at the National Museum.

        AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE
        I had one of my most exciting travel experiences visiting Ethiopia, but the icing on the cake was Lalibela. The flight to Lalibela stopping over at Gonda added more value. As a civil engineer, in those churches, I saw a confluence of architecture, sculpture, engineering, and geology. My experience with the tour company Walk-In-Ethiopia makes me want to do this again.

        Great way to discover Addis Ababa
        It was a good way to discover Addis in a different way. Excellent guide and nice car. Very diverse program: fresh air in the mountains, learn abortus Ethiopia's rich and proud history. Also Merkato and Tomaco Coffee in the old French La Gare area was Lovely. Special thanks to guide Gashaw who passionately answered all my questions all Day.

        A whistle stop tour of Adis Ababa
        Gashaw our guide met us at the airport and took us on a whistle stop tour of Adis Ababa. We visited the museum where an informative guide introduced us to the back ground of Ethiopia as well as meeting Lucy. We then drove to a vantage point top of Entoto Mountain where the views down over the city are breath taking. We had a coffee stop there too. Next was a drive around the Mercato Africas largest market. A visit to Topocas for coffee, try a Spreece. Topped off our visit with a cultural show which included authentic music & dancing whilst eating amazing local cuisine washed down with honey wine. We highly recommend Gashaw , he is friendly, full of information and made our trip a special one. Even dropped us off at our hotel at the end of the evening. Thank you Gashaw 🙏🏼

        Perfect day trip in nature!
        I had a great time on this Day Trip tour from Addis to Lake Ziway - my tour guide Bre was super kind, knowledgable and accommodating. We saw birds, hippos, local communities and incredible scenery. I would highly recommend this tour - even for solo travelers like myself. The driver was great, safe and on-time. The drive from Addis to the lake is about 2 hours, but the landscape along the way was incredible. It really made my time in Addis special.

        Incredible day!
        This tour was the best experience in Ethiopia. I had the best day - my guide was very nice, knowledgeable and accommodating. The drive was about 2 hours from Addis to the Lake, but scenery of the lowlands farms was so beautiful it made the drive an experience too. I felt super safe with the driver as well, he drove very safe the whole day. Every part of the tour was the perfect amount of time and we saw so many animals, birds, people and nature spots.

        Great experience
        It would have been impossible to visit such a large and complex city in one day. Walk in Ethiopia Tour and Travel was able to organise a great tour, at a very affordable price, with a very serious but professional and friendly guide. It was a great tour. Thank you Habtamu for such an impeccable job.

        Jam packed, interesting, friendly
        I just had a day-long stopover in Addis and wanted to explore the city a little bit. This tour was a really great, informative day out that’s given me an entirely new insight to Ethiopia and Addis! Minile was friendly, overflowing with knowledge and really helpful. As a solo female traveller I felt really safe and supported. Definitely recommend!

        5-night tour of Bahir Dar, Lalibela and Kombolcha by road
        5-night driving trip to Bahir Dar for 2 nights, Lalibela for 2 nights then 1 night in Kombolcha then returning back to Addis Ababa. Visited Ura Kidane Mihret Monastery and Church on Lake Tana by boat, visited Biue Nile Falls. Visited Lalibela monolithic rock Churches. Travelled by road in late model Toyota Hilux LX 4x4 wagon. Vehicle was in very good condition and excellent driver (Mele). All entrance fees to sites, tour guides, Bed and Breakfast and fuel costs covered. No additional charges except for lunch / dinner and drinks / refreshments. We wanted to travel by road to see the countryside and although the roads were terrible in places, well worth it to see the spectacular countryside. Cannot recommend this company highly enough and my wife and I will use this Company again for future tours in Ethiopia.

        Worst tours experience ever !
        Dear All, Beware of this travel agency worst experience ever we never get to the site cause the car had no suspension and a nightmare for our back both my husband and I. We requested to turn back to Addis he refused and try to convinced that we honor we lose our money finally he refused to refund or even Compromise and Keep saying that the car is Ethiopian standard not European and by the way we lived in Senegal so just to avoid them He never saw the car he rented to another travel company and never gave a dam about our concerns. We lost a whole day of vacation for disrespected and screwed of 320€.

      We were lucky in travelling at a time with few tourists but had a fantastic time. The company was well organised and very honest. We had good information on the trip and what was expected. Our driver/guide was the perfect balance between giving us interesting information but at the same time allowing us to explore and ask questiions that interested us.
      The visits to traditional tribes were senstively done and visits were playful and fun.
      While we were in Addis the company took good care of us.
      Gasaw was very professional and attentive to our needs. He took us to a very traditional coffee shop which we woud never have found on our own . The traditional dinner dancing and singing was truely memoral.
