Omo National Park

Omo National Park is one of the most remote national parks in Ethiopia. There is almost no tourist infrastructure in the park itself. This all sounds like an overture to a fantastic adventure! The park is located in the southwest of the country and is named after the Omo River, the second largest river in Ethiopia, right after the Blue Nile. The lower parts of the Omo River have been under UNESCO protection since 1980, after the discovery of fossilized remains of Homo Sapiens about 195,000 years old. The park is home to several ethnic groups that live traditionally and attract a lot of visitors' attention with their clothes, body decorations, and customs.
