A child passes through the camp's fence where a hive is waiting to be installed. The tribe of nomad herders, the Hamer, numbers 40,000 people. Still very traditional, they live mainly from pastoralism. The Hamer people live in a desert region with sparse vegetation. The hives are set up near streams, which fill up during the wet season. The development of the Omo Valley, with projects for intensive farming and road infrastructures, will certainly and rapidly transform the life of these people. The Honey Tribe, Omo valley, Ethiopia
