Journeys of freedom & discovery. Travelling in purpose-built trucks or 4x4s you’ll see all the highlights but also get far off the beaten track. Led by a professional crew or driver, groups help with the cooking & setting up camp, enjoying a real hands on experience.
Our Plus tours allow you to immerse yourself within a destination or culture whilst travelling and sleeping in comfort. They are packed with highlights to ensure you get the most out of your valuable time away yet are also slower paced allowing you time to savour the culture, traditions and sights of your destination – the perfect balance.
The Karo tribe lives along the east banks of the Omo River in southern Ethiopia. One of the most striking features of this tribe is the spectacular face and body paint they adorn for ceremonies. It is made from a combination of white chalk, black charcoal, yellow ochre and red earth. They insert feather plumes into their clay hair buns to imitate the guinea fowl’s spotted plumage. Elaborate clay hair buns can take up to three days to construct and need to be re-made every three months.
