Our Africa tours are back for the third year running! Come join us for an almighty off the beaten track experience to one of the worlds least visited places – Somaliland.

Our tour kicks off in the former British protectorate and the self-declared republic of Somaliland. Somaliland is a de-facto state which declared its independence from the rest of Somalia in 1991. To date, no international organisation has recognized it as a sovereign nation.

Parts of it are still recovering from a brutal civil war, but nowadays it is very safe and the local people are extremely welcoming to foreign visitors. Crime against tourists is virtually unheard of and don't be surprised if the locals make a bit of a fuss upon meeting you as they don't encounter foreigners too often! One of many surprises about Somaliland is in how fundamentally different it is from other countries in the region — not to mention almost anywhere else on the planet. We will be joining the locals to smoke some shisha, take a dip in untouched waters, and take a visit to see some ancient cave art.

This tour can run as a standalone or is also a great combo with our Somaliland & Eritrea Tour Combo
