Island of the Dragon Trees

As many of you know, I have been planning and researching the possibility of conducting a tour to Socotra for a long time. Political circumstances in the past 6 years made this trip difficult. However recent changes are making this a real possibility: a direct flight from Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) to the island of Socotra without a layover in Yemen!

Having visited the island in March 2022 has given me the opportunity to re-design and plan a much better itinerary (maximizing time in great habitats, and somehow cutting down on unnecessary hikes or give options to those who do not wish to hike so much).

Flora: Adenium socotranum (in bloom), all species of Aloe, Boswellia, Caralluma, Ceropegia, Cissus, Commiphora, Crassula, Dedrosicyos, Dorstenia, Dracaena, Duvaliandra, Echinopsis, Edithcolea, Euphorbia, Jatropha, Kalanchoe, Ledebouria, Peperomia, Sarcostema, Senecio, Socotrella, Sterculia
