TRIP OVERVIEW

The Omo Valley is one of the most culturally rich tribal regions on the African continent. For generations these tribes have been shielded from the modern world in a place that is still raw, natural, and timeless. However, change is happening quickly in this region, which will soon impact their traditional clothing, body painting and way of life.

We have access to the villages of the Arbore, Karo, Hamar, Mursi, and Dassenech. We will have many opportunities to photograph and filming their daily lives, as well as experience some of their timeless ceremonies.
