Stay in the heart of Omo Valley, considered the ‘cradle of humanity’ at the Eco-Omo Safari Lodge in Jinka. The twenty safari style tent structures are located just outside of Jinka on the way to Mago National Park. Each permanent style ‘tent’ offers en-suite toilet, common shower facility, mosquito netting, and either twin beds or double bed. Electricity is available 24 hours a day with a backup generator.
The lodge offers a full bar, wifi in the restaurant, and television in the lounge area. Cultural dances from the Ari and Mursi village on request are also available and a campfire area allows for occasional evening entertainment. The restaurant serves buffet style breakfast, a la carte menu for lunch, and menu or buffet style dinners with predominantly Italian and international cuisine with many home-grown ingredients.
Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
