New Land (Nuer Villages)

Top choice in Western Ethiopia

The Nuer villages on the outskirts of Gambela, known collectively as New Land, are the easiest to get to, and can give a wonderful insight into the lives of the local people. You'll need a local guide and a letter, both provided by Gambela’s Culture and Tourism Bureau. They take about 15 minutes to sort out. You’ll also have to pay a little extra to the people themselves for any photos you take.
