Drive from Asmara via a zigzag road to Keren- one of Eritrea’s most attractive towns. As time allows, visit the charming town of Keren which was once a favorite resort for European visitors because of the temperate climate and fertile soil, and a place where the decisive battles of WWII were carried out between the British and the Italians. Some of the things to see in Keren include the famous Mariam Dearit inside a Baobab, the British and Italian cemeteries of World War II, the old Railway Station from the 1930s, the 19th-century Tigu Egyptian Fort and St. Antony Romanesque Church and the old Mosque.

Drive to Buri Peninsula, situated on the Danakil east of the Gulf of Zula renowned for its volcanoes and wildlife. Visit the Buri Peninsula noted for its spectacular landscape of semi-desert and Acacia woodlands with basaltic lava flow, while the shorelines are dotted with mangrove forest dominated by Avicinnia marina, an important breeding ground for fish and crustaceans.

It is also home to a number of wildlife species such as a high population of the endangered African wild ass, Dorcas and summering gazelles, ostrich, jackals, and others. At its mouth sits an important archeological site known as “Abdur Reef” -where it is believed that the earliest human beings first set about to exploit marine resources some 125,000 years ago.
