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.
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.
