Ethiopia’s Omo River Valley is one of the last great frontiers left in Africa, a vast landscape populated by as yet unassimilated tribes – the Hamar, the Mursi, the Dassanech – existing much as they have for centuries. A compelling new cultural expedition, tailored to guests’ desires, from Journeys By Design (journeysbydesign.com; from £3,700 per person for five nights, departures until end September) takes in the southern valley’s beauty from both river and land, including several days on a private boat cruising south towards the remote Omo Delta.

Guests can stay at the cracking new Hamar flycamp, which Journeys By Design founder (and Africa fixer par excellence) Will Jones describes as “a cross between [Namibia’s] Wolwedans, [Botswana’s] Jack’s Camp and [Tanzania’s] Kichaka” – three of the absolute coolest low-fi camps on the continent.
