The region holds many interesting tribal villages home to the Hamer, Mursi, Karo, Dorze, Surma, Geleb, Bume and others.

Both their lifestyle and their culture are deeply imbued in tradition still untouched by our modern world. The Rift Valley hosts a splendid chain of lakes that run from Ethiopia to Tanzania. These lakes are home to such a vast variety of domestic and migratory birds that they have earned a reputation as a bird-watcher’s paradise. The lakes are surrounded by national parks, beaches and depressions; lake Langano with its volcanic waters is the only one suitable for swimming.
