Shoshi Trekking - a guided adventure hike with the Hamar community in Ethiopia

Our guided intermediate hike, Shoshi Trekking, developed and organised by Yared Tour & Travel, takes you completely off-the-beaten path with the Hamar community, one of 16 distinct tribal communities in the Lower Omo Valley.

Shoshi which means ‘guest’ in Hamar language is the heart and spirit of the experience.

Along the trail, you are invited into villages and family homes for the chance to immerse in genuine Hamar hospitality and to learn about how the community live together close to nature in the same way they have for centuries.

Shoshi trekking seeks to distribute the benefits of tourism to more remote Hamar communities pledging that 70% of money will go direct to Hamar families.

The full-board, small group trek best suits adventurous and socially conscious travellers who don’t want the usual tourist experience but value the chance to connect with local people, delve deeper into rural tribal culture, and are more than happy to hike for the privilege.

I travelled to Ethiopia in December and I couldn’t recommend this company enough. There are many travel agents out in Ethiopia promising an immersive experience but I can truly say this company is the only one that did us a unique experience - access to true tribal life. Be careful not to fall privy to many companies who will drop you off in 4x4s for a 10 minute photo shoot.... the only way to fully experience this beautiful country is hiking to remote tribes that are not accessible by car. I wasn’t sure what to expect but all I can say is be open minded and enjoy every moment as you will be overwhelmed by their sense of community and the love they have for everyone and everything. It will get under your skin! In terms of what we did - We hiked along the Ethiopian landscape with local guides and donkeys. We ate with families at different settlements along our hike which gave us a much needed respite from the terrain. In the evenings we would watch sunset while our local guide and host family would prepare us local food and local wine before we would spend the evening getting to know the families. In terms of sleeping, we opted for the camping option which meant we would set up within the compound of the host family. For me, this was my favourite part - waking up to the sound of children playing and then unzipping my tent and being greeted by a goat! My main contact for the visit was a lady called Elizabeth who is native English but had moved over to Ethiopia some 10 years ago and she was a great guide and so knowledgeable. I cannot recommend this trip and company enough!!

I traveled solo as a female to Ethiopia. Yared organised everything so I had an authentic safe Ethiopian experience. It was amazing. Both Joseph (Addis guide) and Yared (owner) were experts!
