With foreign offices across the World still suggesting against all travel to the drought-prone, war-plagued, and poverty-stricken lands of Somalia. It is perhaps quite tough to see how this nation on the IP o the African Horn will ever be open for business again. Ranging from the urban sprawl of Mogadishu to the cloud-toped, camel spotted peaks of the Cal Madow ranges in the north. This nation is undeveloped and untouched, too; a picture of what Africa once was before the onset of mass safari going. Let’s explore some of the best places to visit in Somalia:
If you ask anyone in Hargeisa and they will tell you that this city is not a part of Somalia at all. But it is instead the self-proclaimed capital of Somaliland. For starters, the place is relatively peaceful and non-violent. There are honorific monuments to great struggles.
Laas Geel is home to some of the earliest cave paintings ever discovered on the Horn of Africa, the multiple nooks and underground tunnels here display a haunting vision of prehistory in these parts. And lastly, the Laas Geel is hardly developed, leaving visitors all alone with the history.
Carrying on the Somaliland theme, the town of Zeila beckons adventurous travelers to the north-western corner of the nation, where the dry and arid land of dunes and rocky hills crashes into the pearly blue of the Aden Gulf.
