HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • Visit the Dorze people and immerse yourself in a culture well known for their unique beehive houses and colourful woven fabrics.
  • Take a boat trip on Lake Chamo for a chance spotting of the resident hippos, thousands of Nile crocodiles, rich bird life and local fishermen.
  • Visit Hamar villages made entirely of mud with very few outside influences and, if you're lucky, perhaps see an initiation bull jumping ceremony.
  • Spend a night in Konso and visit a mora, a central communal building used by men and boys as a social area while you're there.
Starting and ending in Addis Ababa, the Ethiopia Untouched tour is a guided explorer tour that takes 7 days. You will travel through Arba Minch, Konso and Jinka in Ethiopia. Ethiopia Untouched is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Often overlooked, Ethiopia’s spectacular nature reserves and diverse tribal communities are ripe for exploration. Go off the beaten track and visit remote tribes in the Omo Valley and try to spot crocodiles as they bask off the shores of Lake Chamo. Get up close and personal with the people and the nature of Ethiopia – a place hidden from the rigorous modernity of the modern world.

“Our tour is a group of twenty people. Majorities are Australians. We have good atmosphere and co-operations , especially in preparation and after our daily feedings. We have two tour leaders, nice and hard working guys. Niki is excellent cook.
Different landscapes. lakes and Bungle Bungles let you understand more about this wild Kimberley. If you like hiking,
swimming and drinking Champagne at the same time in the
Lake Agryle, go.”

“This is my first group trip. I am a woman and I travel alone. The tour offered culture and nature. I am interested in arts and crafts, so I saw some relevant museums. The social unity of the group was good. The hotels were fine. The trip is recommended.”
