About this trip

ORYX’s “Vanishing Tribes of the Omo Valley Signature Photo Tour” will take us to one of the wildest and most ethnically diverse places on Earth – the Omo Valley. This is a cultural photo experience during which we will interact with several tribal communities who still live almost exactly as they did hundreds of years ago. Sadly, development and the ravages of modernization are threatening these unique peoples, and as such the Omo Valley is a see it while you can destination. This harsh and inhospitable place has over ten distinctly different tribes existing within a 38 mile / 60 km radius each with its own unique language, clothing, hairstyles and bodily ornamentation. Our photo tour focuses on 5 of these tribes: the Suri, Arbore, Mursi, Karo and Hamar.


This Photo Tour will allow you the opportunity to capture the exceptional ‘Vanishing Tribes of Africa’ with an ORYX Ethiopian specialist photo leader.

DESTINATION ALLURE

Capture four distinctive tribes found in the Omo Valley and photograph some of the most colourful and bizarrely-adorned tribes on this planet. We focus on the Suri, Karo,<br /> Hamar and Mursi tribes, affording visitors the rare opportunity to photograph and interact with people that have, until now, escaped the onslaught of modernity 

ACCOMMODATION

We make use of each area’s most suitable and best available accommodation and enjoy the exclusive experience of staying at our comfortable ORYX Mobile Camp in the Surma area

Fabulous trip, well organised and our tour leader and photographer Penny Robartes was excellent. Good accommodation and locations were also good. Learned a lot from Penny about photography and took some of the best photos I have ever taken. Saw lots of animals and birds. the local guides were also well informed, helpful and excellent overall. In summary this was an excellent trip and will certainly look to undertake further trips with Oryx.
We had a memorable trip to Madagascar We have just been there for a week but we had the impression being there for a month We saw so many great locations and species in different national parks And finally being on the western coast to Morondava with islands beach and baobab Allée was very special It was a great trip we would love to do again. Kirsten is a great guide ! Hotels were perfectly chosen and also the local guide was very good And the drivers were great what is very important on these difficult roads. Thanks to all Best Johannes
The camera equipment was great Kirsten gave me a simple but efficient introduction I could work with very good Thanks so much Best johannes
