A Unique Touring Experience in Ethiopia
Ethiopia is probably not a destination for your average traveller, but adventurers looking for a unique experience, in a land which is often referred to as “the cradle of mankind”, should check out a new tour offered by Original Travel.
The tour offers an opportunity to join Amelia Stewart for a 'once in a lifetime' trip deep into the Omo Delta region of Ethiopia. Travelling by charter plane, jeep and boat visiting the Jinka, Mursi and Dassanech tribes in the south of the country, the small tour group will be hosted by eminent photo-journalist Jeremy Hunter as well as expert local guides.
Setting up camp close to The Dassanech tribe on the banks of the Omo River, a remote spot which will allow the intimate group of explorers to experience and learn about these wild lands and the ancient tribes who inhabit them. Former war correspondent and ITV current affairs reporter, Jeremy Hunter is an intrepid explorer and Ethiopian expert with a passion for the country’s indigenous tribes, festivals, rituals and celebrations; he has won two UNESCO awards during his celebrated career as a photo-journalist.
Ethiopia is an ancient country with an amazing eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites alongside some of the most wild, beautiful, and untamed landscapes in Africa. It is important to know that due to the construction of the Gib III dam the societies visited during this journey are either in transition or nearing extinction.
