How many Omo valley communities can I see?

We’d recommend taking your time. Lift the veil of these communities and you’ll discover so much more, beyond the first-encounter experiences.

That being said, if you’re short on time you can see as many as 3-To 5 diverse tribes in a day and still get a flavour for this wonderful region, as long as you don’t mind spending some time in a vehicle.

We recommend spending a minimum of 4 days in the Omo Valley. Any less than that and you spend a lot of time in a vehicle and don’t have the opportunity to get beyond surface-level interactions. Most visits to the Omo don’t extend beyond a week or so. 

How long do you spend with each village?

Up to you. Travellers who want to see more than the show put on for tourists would be encouraged to spend a bit longer, even stay the night in or near communities. Most visits last from an hour or two – depending on how long you have in the region.

The major constraint is the drive times – all of the travelling in the Omo is done by road, so how long you can spend with each community depends on the number of villages you want to visit, and how long you are spending in the Omo.
