Introducing Puntland

It is a semi-autonomous region within Somalia that declared itself an autonomous state in 1998. Since then, it has strived to become a self-governing and stable region within Somalia. Puntland is one of the most stable regions in Somalia, and it has its own security forces, police, judiciary, and business community. There are approximately 2.5 million people living in Puntland. Puntland’s capital city is Garowe.

Puntland takes its name from the Land of Punt, an ancient kingdom mentioned in ancient Egyptian texts. There was a long standing reputation for wealth and trade relations between Punt and Ancient Egypt. The Puntland region is a beautiful and diverse region that has much to offer tourists. Puntland offers stunning beaches, a unique culture, and a rich history that appeal to a wide variety of travelers. Since 2012, we have been conducting tours in this region, and we are excited about it!

Why Travel to Puntland?

There are many reasons to visit Puntland, but here are just a few that are worth noting:

There is no doubt that Puntland is one of the least visited places in the world. This is because it is the most easternmost point in Africa and also one of the most scenic places in the world. It is abundant with Italian art and history. There is something for everyone in Puntland, no matter whether you’re looking for adventure or just want to relax on pristine beaches. Come and discover this hidden gem for yourself – you won’t be disappointed if you decide to visit!

Culture and Language in Puntland

Puntland is the home of the Somali ethnic group. Puntland’s official language is Somali. Despite this, there are many Puntland citizens who speak both Arabic and English. Puntland’s culture is a mix of Somali and Arab influences. The predominant religion in Puntland is Islam. In Puntland, the majority of the population lives in rural areas and engages in subsistence agriculture. Camal and goats are the most commonly raised livestock. In Puntland, fishing plays an important role in the economy and culture.

In comparison with other parts of Somalia, Puntland offers a relatively safe environment for visitors. Nevertheless, when traveling to this region, it is important to be aware of cultural sensitivities. As an example, women should dress modestly and refrain from wearing shorts or skirts above the knee. It is not recommended for men to wear shorts unless they are participating in sports activities. Taking photographs of people without their permission is also considered rude.
