Yemen, The Socotra Archipelago

 


The Socotra Islands are the jewels of Yemen and the whole Arabian region. It is indeed a place of botanical and zoological treasures nurtured by many generations of the islanders, the keepers of the unique cultural traditions of Yemen. For centuries, the Socotra Islands have been out of early explorers’ and naturalists’ attention. But by the end of 90-s they became a center of attraction never seen before especially from those who are interested in their economic development and natural environment preservation.

Dating back to prehistoric times the unique nature of Socotra attracts not only scientists and specialists, but also enthusiasts of eco-tourism.

 

The Archipelago is one of few places in the world where people live in harmony with nature, so rarely found in our modernized world.

We arrange tours on Socotra Archipelago in cooperation with the local socotrian guides having many years' experience with tourists from various countries.

They are highly professional and can show you the most attractive places of the island, tell about its nature, language and culture, as well as organize diving, trekking or other special programs.  

Try the real taste of Socotra!
