Trans Africa Group Expedition - From the Sahara to the Ocean

October 2014

Join us on this great expedition across the Sahara as our group travels across Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal and Guinea Bissau.

On this tour, our group is accompanied by an experienced expedition leader - Alberto Nicheli. Alberto has a wealth of experience and understanding of this area, having led 55 Sahara expeditions, including ethnological research expeditions on Tuareg and tribal art. He has completed many solo Sahara crossings and exploratory missions.

At the moment this is a one-off special, so to make sure you get your place and don't leave it until it is too late to book!

Wanderlust Travel Awards 2014 - Top Tour Operator

Undiscovered Destinations were delighted to come in 10th place out of 450 different travel companies at the recent Wanderlust Travel Awards 2014. The standard of competition was so high that it took over 90% in traveller satisfaction ratings to make it in to the top 10.

The Awards are voted for by the readers of Wanderlust magazine so are highly regarded and a great honour for the Undiscovered Destinations and our small group tours. We would like to thank all of our clients, past and present who voted for us, and we hope to achieve even greater things this coming year.


Iran Visa Service

Undiscovered Destinations Iranian visa service is designed to assist UK passport holders, based in the UK and who intend to visit Iran on one of our small group adventure tours. To apply for a Visa you must first have an Authorisation Number from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Iran, which we will obtain for you. You will then need a Visa stamped in your passport by the Iranian Consulate and since 1st December 2011 the Iranian Consulate in London is closed until further notice.

While the consulate in London is closed, applications need to be made to the Iranian consulate in Dublin or the Iranian consulate in Frankfurt (or in another country if more convenient) where you have to have your passport stamped. Since May 2012 the Iranian consulates in Dublin and Frankfurt have not been accepting visa applications by post and the documents have to be delivered in person.

We provide a visa service to take your passport to the consulate in person. The cost of this service is £275 per passport. This includes a service fee and the actual visa fee which is currently €180 for UK passport holders.

Please allow at least 5 weeks for the full visa process.

Once we have received an Authorisation Number from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, you will need to send Undiscovered Destinations your passport, which must be valid for at least 6 months, together with one completed visa application form (we will provide this) and two passport-size photos (ladies with headscarf).

*Please note that Undiscovered Destinations make NO GUARANTEE that your visa will be issued by the Iranian authorities and all costs, including tours and flights are subject to cancellation fees*

Please contact us for more details regarding this service.
