Planet of the Afar
"Many other fossils of ancient times have been uncovered here, prompting some palaeontologists to propose that this area is where our specie s first evolved. As a result, it is often referred to as the "cradle of humanity"
The Ethiopian Afar tribe are living in an area that looks in nothing like the rest of Ethiopia, they created their unique culture with Arabic roots living in east Africa. For centuries long they have managed to live and work in one of the hottest place on earth including mineral landscapes, volcanoâ€™s and endless salt and lava lakes. Through evolution the nomadic Afar could adapt to these circumstances and got used to the heat and dryness therefore they are often considered to be a Warrior tribe.
