DAYS & PLACES
In the Indian Ocean, lies the small archipelago of Socotra – three islands located between the horn of Africa and the south of the Arabian Peninsula.
Now part of the Republic of Yemen, this rocky land was isolated from Africa 6 millions years ago and has since developed some of the most intriguing forms of wildlife. With nearly seven hundred endemic species, it is considered as the jewel of biodiversity of the Arabian Sea.
A combination of desert and tropical climates – on what people call the most alien looking place on earth, with some trees and vegetation dating back 20 millions years. Preserved from mass tourism, it has managed to keep its original mysterious atmosphere. Since 2008, Socotra has been classified as one of UNESCO’s world heritage site.
