The Lost World. Alien Island. The Pearl of the Indian Ocean.
These are just some of the phrases often used to describe Socotra Island, often seen as a highly prized travel destination to visit in most adventurers eyes. Sadly for the past few years it has virtually been off the map due to the awful civil war in Yemen, although thankfully it has never been part of it and remains stable and secure.
This is one of the most remote places in the world, it has recently been battling war, floods, cyclones and even the UAE, but hoping we will be able to access it but most importantly – safely!
Update – November 2018
Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, I am no longer able to offer Socotra as a tour, I have seen various Social Media people visiting the island but it is not safe to visit Yemen and I don’t recommend it.
If you’d like to have a chat about the tour or if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions please feel free to ask me by emailing me here.
