The Horn of Africa is an interesting though frequently uncertain neighbourhood, a focus for trade and a place where African an Arab cultural DNA splits and recombines in surprising ways. Travel in Somaliland remains a pioneering undertaking, there is no tourist trail. An acceptance that comfort and convenience may be compromised is a prerequisite.
This short trip gives the intrepid traveller a unique insight into a country that does not officially exist. Starting in the capital Hargeisa we wander the markets and soak up the atmosphere before heading to Borama, Las Geel, Berbera and Sheikh where we meet local nomadic communities and learn about the challenges they face in this parched corner of the continent. After visiting the eastern towns of Arabsiyo and Gabiley, we then travel to the spectacular rock art site of Las Geel – one of the most impressive examples of prehistoric art in Africa. From here we journey to the coastal city of Berbera with its colonial architecture and discover the stunning scenery around Sheikh before heading back to the capital, Hargeisa.
