Omo National Park

Omo National Park is found in the West bank of the Omo River which runs along the Sudan
border. The park is home for several wild animals. The park provides an opportunity for
trekking where one can visit the Suma people, who are almost similar with Mursi where the
women wear a clay disk on their lip. It’s found in the West bank of the Omo River which runs

The Omo Valley is virtually free of human habitation but is rich in palaeoanthropological
remains. According to scientific research done in 1982 by the University of
California at Berkeley, hominid remains from the Omo Valley probably date back more than
four million years.
Much of Africa’s volcanic activity is concentrated along the immense 5,000 kilometre crack in
the earth’s surface known as the Rift Valley. It is the result of two roughly parallel faults,
between which, in distant geological time, the crust was weakened and the land subsided. The
valley walls – daunting blue-grey ridges of volcanic basalt and granite – rise sheer on either side
to towering heights of 4,000 metres. The valley floor, 50 kilometres or more across,
encompasses some of the world’s last true wildernesses
