The Socotran Archipelago is notoriously hard to reach, which is why our on-the-ground handlers are currently developing new ways of travelling there. We recce every location before our guests arrive, which allows us to meet all expectations, exceed them and do so at the height of safety. Now, let the mind wonder. These are few of the hidden delights found in the Socotran Archipelago.
Dragon blood trees – There’s nothing usual about dragon blood trees: They bleed a crimson-coloured resin and have thick, knotted branches that reach out like an umbrella. This is just one of the endemic species that transform Socotra’s landscape into an alien one, and a visit to the island is not complete without a glimpse.
Heart-racing adventure – From paragliding between mountainous valleys to kite-surfing along the sweeping coastline, the sky’s really the limit. There won’t have been another adventure like this.
Your own Socotran camp – In a land where accommodation is yet to go beyond the basic, we can design a camp for you that’s complete with all the amenities needed to bring a slice of home to Socotra. Think hot showers, tented dining rooms and verandahs that look out to the piercing blue waters.
Underwater exploration – Fragments of old ships are scattered in the shallow waters surrounding the island. By snorkel or scuba dive, you can inspect the creatures living around Socotra alongside a dive guide or a marine biologist, searching for pods of inquisitive spinner dolphins or majestic manta rays swirling in the currents. We could also arrange night dives for you, to see the creatures that emerge after the lights go out.
