Gamo travel、とてもオススメです!初めてのアフリカ旅行、それもエチオピアで色々と不安でしたがお陰様で素晴らしい旅行となりました。オモ渓谷まわりの少数民族巡りをテーマに8日間(現地5泊)の旅程で、日本旅行会社パッケージより、2人で15〜20万円位安く済んだと思います。旅行では7民族ほど訪問し、ハマル族、カロ族の村ではテントで一夜を過ごしました。ハマル族には飼っているヤギをBBQしてもらいました。旅行中は終始ドライバー兼トータルガイドのWegと行動を共にし、途中変更の希望に応じてくれながら安心で快適な時間を過ごせました。 Gamo travel, highly recommended ! We worried about our first trip to Africa & Ethiopia, but became memorable with their help. The theme of 8 days trip was visiting minority tribes and was much cheaper than arrangement by Japanese travel agency. On the...More
