Journey to the Lost Tribes

E-mail Print PDF

An adventure in the uncontaminated territories of the South, along difficult tracks, sometimes barely visible trails in the savannah, to encounter populations who have lived in complete isolation for centuries, and whose life-style is still truly and deeply African: the Karos, the Galebs, the Hamer, the Bumes, the Tsemay, the Eari Bore, the Desenech, the Mursis who are known for the lip plates worn by their women. The Nech Sar Park, between Lakes Chamo and Abaya, where you can often see zebras and antelopes roaming freely, and the Mago Park where, if you are lucky, you can see or hear elephants trumpeting in the night. And then the lakes of the Rift Valley towards Addis Ababa, populated by myriads of birds, the hot springs of Wondo Genet, and Lake Langano, where swimming in the volcanic water, pink at sunset, is a sublime pleasure.
