There are many tribal villages available to visit in this vast area. As you can see from the main Tripadvisor photo, this village was totally unique in the use of corrugated metal in their huts rather than traditional building materials. We were told that the traditional building materials were no longer available. Village life was quite interesting and the local people entertained us with a series of traditional dances, some of which they invited visitors to join. For whatever reason, the village had more paperwork and formalities involved in the visit than the other tribes we visited in the Omo River Valley. The Dasenech village is well worth a visit.

Our group of 17 visited this village and spent part of a day there. It was a great experience and we felt welcomed by everyone we came across. It was interesting learning about this tribes customs and culture. I was invited inside one of their homes which was an honor. I had a great time participating in some of their dances and songs and it really didn't seem touristy to me but rather a genuine experience with people who were happy to share their culture with others. I would highly recommend a stop by this village for a visit! The ride in the dugout canoe to cross the Omo River to get there was an experience in itself!

In one of my work trip to Dassanech, I took a lazy walk into the Village and ended up spending the night outside one of the manyattas with a filled up belly, tired muscles from all the singing and a contended heart. Apart from the Language barrier (a guide can be helpful), there's so much to learn about their culture and traditional songs rich in history and culture. Make sure to try the zigny Anjera as well

We recently returned from a fabulous trip to the Omo Valley.  We went on the 9 day private photographic tour all arranged through Kali man. He was fantastic and from day one we felt we were in a safe pair of hands. He was also very flexible and helpful and was able to rearrange the trip when we were delayed in our arrival due to illness. 

The team of Kali (guide) and  wushu (driver) was amazing. Such a wonderful and funny bunch of guys, but also so professional and competent made for a fabulous overall experience in visiting so many intriguing and remote tribes of the Omo Valley. 

Overall a fabulous and truly unique experience managed by  Kali omo valley and his superb team.

It was very interesting to see the local villages. We were lucky to experience a bull jumping ceremony and a moon dance. The people were very intent on their ceremonies and tolerated us tourists standing in the outskirts, taking photos. These were some of their main ceremonies and were NOT done for our benefit!

Get your guide to agree with the tribe leader that you will pay a one off fee of approx 300-400 birr ( that's about 12-15 USD ) and with this fee you can then take as many photos as you like without having to pay each person. They still hassle you for money but nowhere near as aggressively. As for the tribe there are some lovely people here and you will get some great shots

Visited this village when touring the tribes in Southern Ethiopia
The people live in a very primitive environment and this is enlightening to see .It is of concern that the 200 Bir you pay per person to take photos is actually being used by the village to improve their situation. We also had to pay an entrance fee of 200BIR to enter the park. The official said that this was money that was being placed in a bank account so that the village had access to medical facilities and medicine. Our guide was skeptical of this and suggested that this money was going to the guys who were at the entrance area. Corruption in the first degree. Other than that the experience was memorable

We arrived there after a long trip and crossing omo river, at the beginning we found them boring and not worth to visit but when it came to heart they made it the best. they tried to entertain us with kids group singing and at the end they made us a very big group dance of girls, it was amazing and memorable. i never forget them

we enjoyed our walk, our local guide wasn;t very local, this often seems to be the case,,,, friendly people, they still live their lives like that, (not like the Mursi who just wait and sit around for the tourists). harsh conditions to live!
