Eritrea is a small country located in the horn of Africa, bordering Sudan to the North and Ethiopia to the South.

Eritrea was formerly an Italian colony during the early 20th Century and much of the art deco architecture in the Capital survives today. The country also boasts incredible scenery and bright blue archipelagos and coral reefs.

Due to its mainly closed land borders and difficulty obtaining a visa, the country is one of Africa's most seldom visited, but it is a truly unique country in Africa and deserves to have more visitors.

Please note that some sections of these tours travel to areas where the British FCO advises against all travel to.

We research the security of our destinations highly and safety is a priority for us, however, we advise ytou to do your own research too to ensure you are comfortable with your trip.

Please note these travel warnings may also affect travel insurance for these regions, please contact us for advice on this.

We run one trip per year to Eritrea, every February.

The dates coincide with our Sudan tours, meaning you have the option of combining both.

The visa process can be quite lengthy so we advise applying as far in advance as possible.
