Omo Valley

South Omo is as close as you can get to an Africa untouched by outside influences.  It is often called a living museum and for good reason. There are many different tribes here – Hamer, Bana, Ari, Bodi, Karo, Mursi, Arbore, Nyangatom, Konso, Dassanech and Dorze to name the well known ones.  There are over 40 ethnic groups recognised in the 2007 census.  Some with populations as few as a few hundred.

In essence the South Omo is simply incredible and totally unique.
