Day 1 - Jinka: the Ari tribe
Our next stop is Jinka, a fast-developing market town set in a cradle of green hills above Mago National Park which gives the area a cooler climate compared to the rest of the Lower Omo Valley. Upon arrival in Jinka you will organise everything in the hotel first. After that, we will visit the Ari Tribe.
Day 2- Day Trip Dimeka
Today you make a day trip to Dimeka. The largest city for the Hamar tribe in Ethiopia. On Tuesdays and Saturdays Hamar come from afar to attend the market. Not only is it a place of social contact, but it is a place of social contact where you provide everyone with daily necessities, fruits, clothes or utensils. A special place!
Day 3 & 4 - Drive to Unesco Konso
On day 3 we will drive from Turmi to Konso. The Konso are a resourceful, efficient, charming, careful, and hard-working people. They have always fiercely defended their territory. This is evident in the fact that each village is walled . They are famous for their wooden anthropomorph statuettes, erected in honor of important - deceased - people. In the Konso language these statuettes are called Waga. You’ll have a chance to walk around the fortress like villages (‘kantas’) with their uniquely designed stone-walled walkways, thatched huts and terraced farms.
Day 5 – Nech Sar & Dorze tribe
During today’s action-packed excursion, we visit the nearby scenic Nech Sar National Park . From the park’s edge, we take a motorboat on the lake to see hundreds of huge Nile crocodiles bathing in the sun and hippos bobbing in and out of the water. There are also many pelicans and other birds around the lake.
Day 6 - Relax and flight to Addis Ababa
Today we head back to Addis Ababa by plane. You could shop or make a single final visit in the capital in the afternoon. Or you take a rest in your dayroom in Addis Ababa. You'll be picked up and dropped at the airport.
