Tours to the Omo Valley

The minimum time required to visit the Omo Valley is 4 days. Travelling around the Omo is done exclusively by road, as there are no domestic flight routes south of the gateway town of Arba Minch. 

Arba Minch is a town on the shores of Lake Abaya in the Rift Valley, and is your gateway into the Omo Valley. Most travellers will reach Arba Minch via a domestic flight from Addis Ababa, but it is also possible to drive down the Rift Valley over the course of 2-3 days. 

From Arba Minch, you will take to the road and head south towards the Omo Valley. A journey across the Omo typically takes 4-5 days, with overnights at small towns in different parts of the valley. Be warned, accommodation in this part of the country is very basic

You will be spending a lot of time in a vehicle when exploring the Omo Valley, which is why we don't recommend trying to visit in less than 4 days. 

The Omo Valley is a remarkable region, home to a number of indigenous tribes, each with their own traditions and ways of life. Responsible tourism has never been more important as it is in the Omo Valley, it's a delicate region, and should be visited with the utmost respect.
