Omo River Whitewater Rafting
The Omo River is an immensely popular river in Southern Ethiopia. The water body initiates from the Shewan highlands and moves towards south, empting into the Lake Turkana, located at the border of Kenya. As the river moves further, it gains momentum by falling off from an incredible height of six thousand feet! Thundering along the deep canyons, the river moves through dense forested areas. Considered to be one of the most remote areas, the Omo River is also noted as one of the most sought-after scenic places on the earth.
In the same way, the river scores quite well among rafting enthusiasts as well. From challenging torrents and exquisite terrains to exotic wild lives and lush green forestry – the river has it all.
