The AFAR (Danakil) region is one of the most isolated parts of the Earth. After the rift valley floor settled down a long chain of volcanoes formed and in this Danakil region some are still active.
The region is known for the discovering of a 3.5 million year old human ancestor “ LUCY” a famous name among the world’s scientists. Ethiopia is now home of many of the most ancient hominid remains yet discovered.
Over a vast expanse of the most hostile terrain that the Rift valley has to offer, resilient nomads wander with their cattle, camels and goats. It was in honor of these remarkable people, The AFAR that Donald Johanson coined for Dinkinesh “ WONDERFUL” her scientific name.
