YPT is delighted to announce the Socotra Arabian Sea Tour for 2019. We will be taking advantage of the new flights going from Cairo into Socotra, stopping by Seiyun in Yemen.
Suffering civil war, coups, revolutions and bombings in recent years, the country of Yemen is generally off the radar for tourists. Unless, that is, you know about the island of Socotra. Located between the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula where the Arabian Sea meets the Indian Ocean, Socotra is an ecological wonder. Alien landforms sit above beautiful beaches, and the archipelago is home to a diverse and often unique flora and fauna.
Whether it’s visiting a new and inaccessible country or exploring an ecological paradise, Socotra is a place for everyone.
The tour will take us all around the island to take as many of the sights as possible as we will stay there for a week (until the next scheduled flight brings us back, that is!)
Demand is big and spaces are limited to 14 people at a time!
This trip takes place after our Mali & Burkina Faso Tour which is connected by flights to Cairo.
