Are you looking for the adventure of a lifetime? You could not have made a better choice. The people of Omo Valley and the surrounding regions are inarguably some of Africa’s greatest treasures, and you can rely on Discover Omo to guide you through this amazing destination. We are a locally owned and operated tour company based in Jinka, Omo Valley, Ethiopia, and are dedicated to providing safe, up-close and personal visits to the traditional tribes of southwestern Ethiopia. Exotic and unforgettable, let us take you on a ride through one of the last places on Earth where you can still experience traditional African culture.
Born and raised in Omo Valley, we are experienced and familiar with the entire region and it’s tribes. We are well-known and reputable, and have many connections throughout southwestern Ethiopia. Due to our long term, firsthand knowledge of the area, we can also help teach you about the beliefs and lifestyles of the traditional peoples you meet along your journey.
We speak multiple local languages and partner exclusively with local guides in order to support the communities we visit. Unlike the click-and-run/human-zoo tours ran by some of the large tour companies based in Addis Ababa, Discover Omo offers longer visits, personalized encounters and more meaningful experiences.
Most importantly, a portion of all proceeds is donated to Survival International, an aid organization which works to empower and ensure the survival of the traditional tribes of Omo Valley and elsewhere.
Your wishes are our priorities and we customize our tours to your specifications. Accommodating your wants/needs and scheduling the tour as you desire is our pleasure. We want your experience to be a memorable one and we strive to give you a trip you won’t forget. Our guides will not just treat you as a client but as a friend.
Why wait? We offer real-time, online booking so you know your dates are locked in. After reserving your dates, we will send you an email confirmation and begin making preparations for your visit. No call center frustrations to deal with. We’re a small, local company, you deal directly with us, and we are happy to accommodate you any way we can.
“I’m back from a 9 days tour with Biniyam from Discover Omo, and it was amazing. The service, the places, the planning and the food. All were much better than expected. We camped for 3 nights, near villages and it was a great experience.
I can’t recommend Discover Omo highly enough.”
