Iraqi Kurdistan - Public Holiday Long Weekend Trip

Long Weekend - Birthday of Prophet Muhammad

A three-day weekend will run from Thursday, October 21, to Saturday, October 23 - the perfect amount of time for our classic Kurdistan itinerary, taking in top historical, cultural and natural sites of the region.

Introducing Kurdistan

The "Other Iraq,"; also known as Kurdistan, is a semi-autonomous region in northern Iraq. It is home to the most beautiful scenery in the whole of the Middle East- huge canyons, beautiful mountains, endless rivers, and flowing waterfalls. It's rightfully been dubbed in Middle Eastern literature as 'paradise on earth!

Kurdistan is very different from the rest of Iraq, especially when it comes to safety; it's considered an utterly safe region to visit. Your only concern will be how to decline tea invitations from locals and their families politely!

Somaliland: Africa's Secret Travel Destination - Holiday Long Weekend

https://www.escape-travels.com/trip/somaliland-africas-secret-travel-destination-321/

Book with Confidence

You can book and cancel your trip up to 15 days before the departure date and receive a full refund. If we cancel the trip due to changing restrictions, you will also receive a full refund.

Islamic Holiday Weekend

Mawlid, "Birth of the Prophet", is to be on Thursday the October 21st, giving everyone a 3 day weekend to explore Africa's secret destination.

Introducing Somaliland

The name Somaliland conjures up images of violence associated with Somalia, but the reality could not be more different. The people are mostly friendly and the capital city Hargeisa is rather laid back, as far as cities go.

Somaliland restored its independence in 1991 after the collapse of Somalia as a result of the civil war. Since then it has established and sustained peace and stability. It remains a self-declared sovereign state with a democratically elected government. After more than 20 years of peace and democracy, it is still seeking international recognition. Therefore Somaliland offers an authentic and one-of-a-kind experience in a breakaway state which isn’t officially recognized.

Somaliland offers plenty of unexpected and wonderful surprises. Admire some exceptional rock paintings, feel the pulse of the fast-growing capital, walk along deserted beaches, visit bustling market towns, be awed by stunning landscapes – wherever you go, you’ll feel like a pioneer. More than anything, though, it is the Somali people who make a visit to the country so memorable, with their legendary sense of hospitality.

Socotra - A Botanical Odyssey (confirmed!)

Socotra

Here is your chance to visit this forgotten paradise!

https://www.escape-travels.com/trip/socotra-a-botanical-odyssey-378/

A trip to Yemen's Socotra archipelago is a botanical odyssey in an alien-looking world reminiscent of Jurassic Park. The island is so secluded that a third of its plant life is found nowhere else on the planet. Referred to by scientists as the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean, it is home to shipwrecks and caves and surrounded by impossibly turquoise waters. Its isolation and insane biodiversity lead some to believe it to be the original place of the Garden of Eden.

We've been visiting this amazing part of Yemen since 2013 and have taken hundreds of travellers here. We have made trusted and long-standing friendships with our operators on the island, ensuring a safe and reliable tour for our travellers.

Pictures from our first trip in 2013:
