Introduction to Lale's Camp
To reach Lale's camp, you must travel down the Omo river by boat.
Visitors to this remote area are few and far between, and the camp is only available on an exclusive basis.
Exploring the Omo Valley from Lale's camp is an unforgettable experience, and a step-up from the basic, often run-down lodges along the main trail of the Omo.
Situated among a grove of fig-trees, there are four large tents at Lale’s Camp, with either twin or double beds available.
The tents have a simple but tidy design, with tasteful furniture and colour schemes. They are made from robust canvas and have floors with thick camping mats.
Each tent has a veranda, as well as a separate toilet and shower tents at the back, which have flush toilets, sinks and bucket showers.
Being a tented camp, you won't find any of the amenities of a lodge or hotel.
There is a lovely restaurant, which sits under a lush tree canopy and offers fabulous views over the river.
A good breakfast and a satiating dinner are served here, while a packed lunch is made for you as you head out exploring in the day.
