Ethiopia Southern Explorer: Harar, Bale Mountains & the Omo Valley

This is an extraordinary opportunity to travel through Southern Ethiopia, starting in the old walled city of Harar, before travelling overland to the Bale Mountains through Awash National Park, where the scenery and birdlife is second to none! Moving on from the Bale Mountains, there will be chance to meet some of the more remote ethnic groups of the fascinatingly diverse areas of the Omo Valley in South West Ethiopia. Whilst in this fascinating region we will learn about the varied ethnic groups who inhabit the region - from the Mursi, renowned for their lip-plates, the Konso famous for their terraced farming to the Hamer famous for their bull jumping coming of age ceremony. This is a unique itinerary in an unforgettable part of the world - it will surely be a journey to challenge the senses.


Highlights:

  • Wandering through the narrow streets of the old walled city of Harar
  • Having superb chances of spotting the endemic Simien wolf in the Bale Mountains
  • Meeting (amongst many) the Dorze, Hamer, Konso & Mursi peoples
  • Experiencing the weekly markets at Dimeka and Key Afer
  • Exploring the natural wonders of the Great African Rift Valley


Please note that the Christmas trip is one day longer to allow for Christmas and some of the days are done in a different order to ensure you visit all the key markets.

Wear slip on shoes - you're not allowed to wear them in the churches so you'll be taking them off a lot.

When visiting the Simien Mountains, take binoculars - they're great for spotting Ibex and Gelada baboons.

The cuisine of Ethiopia is underrated, but the coffee as most people know is out of this world.

Peter

Limalimo Lodge is a wonderful property in the Simien Mountains with outstanding views.
