Ethiopia

Jump to last reply

I'm thinking of going to Ethiopia in March for about 2 weeks. There is so much to pack into such a short time, but that is the way it has to be. My main interest is visiting several tribes in the Omo Valley region. Specifically the Mursi, Surga, Karo, Bumi and Hamer. I am also interested in checking out some churches/monasteries north of Addis. Unfortunately for me, I habe to either hire a car/driver/guide or take "luxury" buses where available because I am very very claustrophobic and can't handle flying within Ethiopia. This is unfortunate because it will add many days to my itinerary.

I would appreciate some recommendations on tour companies as well as places I MUST see and perhaps even places overhyped that should be avoided.

Thanks so much, and happy holidaze!

Carol
