        Top Tips

        You’ll pass through indigenous villages as you complete the , but don’t expect for these private peoples to be very forthcoming. You are allowed to observe village life, but interactions are not particularly encouraged.
        If you’re lucky, shortly after visiting the you will be afforded a meeting with the head shaman. Bring along any questions you might have about these indigenous peoples for that visit as the shaman will be more than happy to answer them.
        Please respect the traditions and cultures of these enduring and ancient people, and make certain to keep their home and habitat as clean and undamaged as possible.
        If you are wondering why these people wear white, the shaman informed us that it is to represent the snow at the top of the highest of the mountains.

                This is an excellent opportunity to witness what’s left of rural life in East Africa. Aside from having access to vehicles, lighters and a few packaged food products, the people here live as they have done for hundreds of years. Whether it’s drinking blood, hunting lions, making jewellery or raising cattle, the local people are happy to answer your questions – especially if you’re willing to purchase a souvenir.

                Top Tips

                You would be hard pressed to find a more authentic Maasai experience than at Nkoiyireoro village opposite . Although don’t expect for these tribal people to be without lighters or litter.
                Expect to watch and get involved with a traditional dance, to explore the village, to learn how to make fire and to see inside a Maasia house. Also expect a few awkward moments towards the end of the tour as the Maasai try to sell you locally made curios.
                The Maasai here are quite open to questions, so perhaps try to think of a few before you visit.
                Although this tour is run by the villagers themselves, it can be arranged at or through .

                        The tour offered by the Dorze people might be a little off the cuff, but it’s definitely interesting to be able to explore this fascinating and quite rural Ethiopian village. Once you’ve found a guide, you will visit one of the many beehive/hippopotamus-like huts the Dorze are famous for, where you will explore the grounds and vegetation as well as be invited in for a little food and alcohol. It’s a cordial but humbling experience.

                        Top Tips

                        If you’re taking the to save costs, you might want to also befriend a local on that bus and ask them to guide you for about ETB100. Official guides often charge a lot more and may take you to less authentic parts of the village.
                        Expect to be shown inside one or two of the Dorze’s impressive bamboo-thatch houses and to be offered some local food and drink as part of the community visit.
                        If you don’t fancy taking the bus or a guided tour, a bajaj can be commandeered with a driver in for about ETB500 return. The driver may also be able to act as your guide, though confirm this with them beforehand.
