As with most of our larger combination tours, the itinerary for our three nation Africa tour can be shortened if you wish to join us for just part of the tour. Feel free to get in touch for revised pricing.

Somaliland is one of the world’s most unique travel destinations. Contrary to popular opinion, it is safe to travel here. Citizens of the country and the areas which we will visit are astoundingly hospitable, friendly and of course fascinated by foreign visitors to their country. This is to be expected as the country may not feature on a typical run of the mill Africa tour! Like several of our international destinations for 2018, Somaliland is a de-facto state that does not currently enjoy recognition from the international community. Our three nation Africa tour begins in the capital city of the Hargeisa. This is a special trip and you will be amazed at what Somaliland can offer in an incredible travel experience.

Up next it’s National Day in Eritrea. Many countries on the African continent continue to have their difficulties including Eritrea – however, the country is regarded as one of the most peaceful and welcoming countries in Africa.Eritrea sits west of the Red Sea and shares land borders with Ethiopia, Sudan and Djibouti. With no major influx of foreign visitors each year, much the countries coastline and outlying islands are in spectacular condition and of course, you will have the opportunity to swim in these amazing waters which may as well be an incredibly well-kept secret.

Like many of the destinations we visit internationally, Eritrea has been influenced by other nations and regions as a result of occupation, in this case by the Turks, Egyptians and Italians. In essence, you will see surprising undertones of European and Middle Eastern influences that have left their mark here including but not limited to ethnic, cultural and architectural joys that will instantly astound you. Asmara, Eritrea’s capital city is an incredible place.

The final and third nation on our Africa tour is the Yemeni island of Socotra. Yemen is a country that unfortunately has seen much conflict in recent years. As a result, not many tourists visit Yemen. Socotra however, is a very different story. This dreamlike island forming part of an archipelago of four islands sits between the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula where the Arabian Sea meets the Indian Ocean. Recognised by UNESCO, the island is famed for its ecological wonders, including wildlife, flora and fauna as well as amazing beaches.
