Ethiopian Visa Requirements to Visit the Konso Cultural Landscape

July 17th, 2011
This month's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the newest additions to the list. Ethiopia's Konso Cultural Landscape was just designated as a World Heritage Site this year. The Konso Cultural Landscape is the ancestral homeland of the Konso people, a group of farmers and herders living in South Central Ethiopia.

(via Gadling.) Lamai Serengeti Camp, run by Nomad Tanzania, is situated in an isolated part of the park, close to the Mara River. It's the perfect place to view the creatures of the African savanna without having to give up your own creature comforts. The camp's location also gives you front-row seats to the Great Migration- specifically, that "Trials of Life" moment when the wildebeest cross the river. The camp is subdivided into two smaller camps, each with its own facilities, including a bar, a swimming hole, a dining hall and a library. The tents have indoor plumbing and flushable toi
