Eritrea

S/Y Maila

Dissei Club Village shall be ready for winter season and offer accommodation in bungalows and daily dive excursions.
Sambuco Tesfa

For the time being we take bookings in Eritrea as consultants without responsibility. It is not a question of safety in this country. Supply of fuel, diesel, or beverage is not always garanteed in time. This may cause a delay before departure and a loss of time in your holiday schedule.

Yemen - Kamaran island

Daily dive excursions inside the shelter of the islands is not a challenge like in Sudan. You find almost untouched nature under and over sea level. Deep water dive sites around the Hanish islands are still closed.

Accommodation

Great care was taken to use natural materials and follow the traditional building methods of the Tihama region. In this way we have preserved the natural beauty of this unspoiled environment. Our traditional Tihama huts are all situated just a few steps from the sea. Every hut is equipped with a king-size bed and a mosquito net. It can accommodate 2-3 people. The shower and toilet facilities are just one minute away from the huts.

Our fresh local and international menus are prepared by Yemeni and German cooks.
We are committed to offering a personnel service catering to your individual need at competitive prices

Mangroves provide perfect protection like a nursery for all kinds of young lifes in the sea and on land.
