Join us on a trip of a lifetime to visit the floating pearl of the Indian Ocean.
Experience an exotic place where nature and culture have long coexisted.
An island which has remained relatively untouched, unlike any place on earth, with tourists reserved to only the most adventurous world travelers.
Until now those few tourists that were able to reach Socotra were able to explore the beauty and incredible nature of the island only without any comforts of the modern world , a tour of Socotra as accepted for whatever was available without any expectation for more. Tourists just accepted low expectations of a rugged and wild experience of camping with no toilets or comforts as the cost they had to pay for being able to experience the natural beauty of the island.
We are proud to be offer the world its first tour with an upgraded, comfortable safe, and exotic experience with services and options available only on our tours.
So why is this tour so much more expensive?
The island is very small. There are only a few places where camping is possible, and as a result, all of the budget tourists will be in the same noisy and crowded campsites every night. These public sites will have no toilets, using the quaint phrase 'wilderness toilets' to mean everyone that. visits will be damaging the delicate ecology of the island multiple times per day.
Others will camp every night in simple tents with crowded campsite and no proper sanitation, without running water or sanitary food and cars that have not been well maintained over the years, with at least 6 people per SUV.
This tour includes a hotel stay for all 7 nights of your stay, no camping and no crowds.
In addition, you can expect:
As a further benefit, by raising the standards for tourists on the island we are also making it cleaner, safer, and preserving the ecology of the island for years to come.
