AUGUST 2013: The famous Mursi tribe at Mago NP

August 12, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

The Eco-Omo lodge in Jinka was fantastic and the Italian food an absolute delight.  The friendly Italian owners made this the best place to stay in the whole of Ethiopia. Too bad that we were only staying for one night.


In the morning we leave this wonderful tented camp to drive to Mago National Park where the Mursi tribe is living. Many Mursi women are still wearing a lip plate made of clay in their lower lip.

The Mursi are a very proud tribe and if you treat them with respect they are friendly. We found them to be the nicest tribe of the Omo valley. I know this is subjective and many people had different experiences.
