The more different and fascinating tribe in the region. They live in the stone age, mutilate the womens with plate in the lips and ears. Live in the national park in a reserve. Life style that you can see only in the National Geographic channel. They also are a little bit violent. They demand pay for each photo and for... More

This is a very large park sharing a border with Omo National Park. While it contains a number of wild animals (elephants, gazelles, kudus, etc.), one has to be either lucky or be with an experienced guide to see them. Access roads are not in good shape for animal viewing as they are in Tanzania or other more safari-oriented countries... More

The park is reputed to be the home to animals but they must have been hiding when I was there in late February 2015. Actually there were lots of monkeys around our camp site during the night and during the morning. Still if you have a moment the park is great for a walk as it gives you a sample... More

The thing about Mago is that majority of people just pass through to visit the Mursi tribes that live on the other side of the park. Also the grimm reality is that it's very dificult to spot wildlife in this park. Actually have one time out of 15, saw 2 lions and an elephant, but it was just lucky. The... More
