PRIVET AIR TOUR TO OMO VALLEY

Day 1:

Fly from Addis Ababa to Murlle Karo. This morning we travel out to the Karo people at Kolcho village on the banks of the Omo river The Karo people excel in traditional body painting. This evening we visit a Hamer Village near to our accommodation. The Hamer are fine looking people taking great pride in their appearance – the women, with their red dyed plaited hair wear leather skirts decorated with shells, are beautiful. Each Hamer village is amazingly still free from western influences and non-organic materials. Their homes are constructed entirely of local materials, mud, wood and thatch. Each village consists of a single extended family unit of approximately 10-15 huts in close proximity around which daily life rotates. Overnight Turmi, Turmi Lodge.

Day 2:

Taking an early start we drive across the dry sandy plains to Key Afar then into more fertile rolling hills to the small town of Jinka and mountains through some of the most beautiful Ethiopian scenery, into the drier Mago National Park area where we may see Dik Dik and the lesser Kudu. Out on the dry plains we visit a Mursi Village. These people are known for their decorated clay plates which are inserted in the lower lips of women. Starting at adolescence the plates eventually become larger, some plates are finally reaching the dimensions of a bread and butter plate. This custom seems to be used less now and many of the older women just have the loose skin with no plate inserted. after noon drive to Jinka and lunch, after lunch fly to Addis Ababa. Before departure, you will have a farewell dinner party in one of the traditional restaurants in Addis.
