Turmi is our base as we explore the region and meet different tribes who share this valley but live a life uniquely their own. Drive to Murele, lies on the banks of the Omo River, and is a popular base for exploring this area. The two main tribes who live here are the Hamer and Karo, both of whom practice scarification and have elaborate hairstyles. The Karo are experts in body painting, using clays and locally available vegetable pigments to trace fantastic patterns on their faces, chests, arms, and leg. Karo men also sculpt and shave their hair into extravagant shapes, with special ochre “caps” of hair usually containing several ostrich feathers. overnight Lodge.
