DAY1:

ADDIS ABABA

Early this morning, after arriving, I made a hotel reservation and showered. Explore Ethiopia's expansive capital, the third-highest capital city in the world, after lunch. Visits to Entoto Mountain, where Addis Abeba's founder Menelik famously made his way down to the plains, will be part of your journey. A beautiful panoramic view of the city can be seen from here. Menelik left behind two churches and his former palace, both of which are still standing and available to tourists. As one of our oldest progenitors, the renowned humanoid Lucy may be shown at the National Museum.

DAY2:

KONSO

Before arriving at your next lodge, where you may check into your tukul (cone-shaped mud hut with a thatched roof) for a one-night stay, we'll stop off on the way into the Great Rift Valley to tour part of the Konso, a fortified hillside hamlet and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

DAY3:

OMO

After breakfast, depart the lodge for a full day of visiting the Ethiopian countryside and learning about the everyday life of many of the diverse ethnic communities. Before approaching Tsemay territory in the Omo Valley, you will stop at the Erbore tribe beside the River Woito. Before arriving in Turmi, where you'll spend the following three nights, you'll make a stop at the produce market in Alduba, where residents congregate to exchange products and cattle.

DAY4:

HAMAR

Spend a whole day in a hamlet with the Hamer tribe to get a firsthand sense of southern Ethiopia. Learn about their traditional practices for raising cattle, caring for crops, and gathering honey, as well as how they produce their beaded jewelry and the reason they scar themselves with thorns. After a wonderfully informative day, head back to the hotel for supper and beverages by the campfire.

DAY5:

TURMI

After breakfast, depart from your Turmi hotel and take a two-hour trip to Jinka, where you will spend the next two nights. There will be a few stops along the road, including the villages of Ari and Bena, where you can meet members of the various tribes who live in the region.

DAY6:

MAGO NATIONAL PARK

Drive out to the Mago National Park early in the morning from the resort. Before visiting a settlement of the Mursi tribe to hear about their custom of wearing lip-plates, see animals like baboons and antelope. Enjoy a leisurely lunch at the lodge and an afternoon of rest in the peaceful setting.

DAY7:

ADDIS ABABA

After breakfast, we start to drive back to the capital city of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, and after having lunch in a traditional restaurant it will end of our program.
