Our Africa tours are back for the third year running! Come join us for an almighty off the beaten track experience of one of the world's least visited places – Eritrea.

Eritrea is a real undiscovered gem and has fallen through the cracks on most travelers radar for some time. We will be checking out its pristine coastlines and untouched Red Sea islands, and not forgetting some of the best kept colonial architecture in all of Africa. The tour highlight is the two-day festival we will be taking part in to celebrate Eritrea National Day.

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 Eritrean capital city of Asmara is reminiscent of a film set from a vintage Italian movie. Picture old-school Italian coffee machines and not to mention some outstanding examples of Art-Deco architecture. Although Eritrea still faces various challenges, it paradoxically remains one of Africa’s most peaceful, safest, and welcoming destinations. Crime against tourists here is virtually unheard of.

We can also take care of all steps of the Eritrean visa application. If there is an Eritrean embassy in your country we can assist you with collecting the visa, if not then all you have to do is collect the visa on arrival in Asmara airport.
