Hamer tribe "Bull jumping" ceremony by Marius Coetzee
ORYX’s Vanishing Cultures of the Omo Valley extension will take us to one of the wildest and most ethnically diverse places on Earth – Ethiopia’s Omo Valley. This is primarily a cultural photographic experience during which we will interact with and photograph numerous diverse tribal communities whose lives and traditions have been little changed by the modern era.
One of the many highlights of this expedition will be photographing the Hamar tribe’s people who are known for one of the most bizarre rituals on earth; their “Bull jumping” ceremony. This entails young men, wishing to enter manhood and marry, jumping over a line of bulls, thereby proving their worth to their intended bride’s family. ORYX Co-founder and Ethiopian photographic specialist Marius Coetzee defines the events of this ritual as arguably the most fascinating anthropological scene he has ever witnessed.
We invite you to join ORYX leader Dale Morris on our 2013 Ethiopia – Vanishing Cultures of the Omo Valley and our Ethiopia – Endemic Mammals Photographic Expeditions. These are true photographic expeditions to encounter some of the most remarkable tribal people and endemic mammals on earth.
