AUGUST 2013: Second part of our trip: On the road to Ethiopia's Omo valley
After 13 nights on a fantastic safari to Tanzania's Selous, Ruaha and Northern Serengeti the second part of our trip brings us back to one of the most beautiful countries in Africa, Ethiopia. Last year we went up north but this time the plan is to visit the tribes in the Omo valley and search for the Ethiopian wolf in the Bale mountains. Our flight from Kilimanjaro to Addis is nearly three hours delayed due to technical problems. Our friend and guide Tsegaab is waiting for us at the airport.
After a shorter than expected night of sleep we are on our way south. It is a long drive of about 600km to Arba Minch. On the way we make a photo stop at a market and there was a Khat auction ongoing. Khat is produced mainly in the horn of Africa and in many countries a controlled substance but legal in Ethiopia.
Below are some images from our visit to a Dorze village near Chencha. The Dorze are weavers and are living in 4m high huts.
The next day we visit the Arbore tribe on our way to Jinka. I did not take many pictures there as I was ill that day after the fish at Paradise lodge in Arbra Minch turned out not to be that fresh.
