Generally speaking, the best time to visit is between October / November and March, when the temperature will be hot, but not uncomfortably so. The hottest season is from May to September and travel can be difficult during this time.
Somaliland is hot and so light clothes are generally a good idea.
Islamic dress applies to women. Headscarves should be worn at all times. Long-sleeved blouses or shirts are required and preferably long skirts, although loose-fitting trousers may also work. Islamic long coats, ‘manteaux’, would not be necessary.
The first thing on your list should be a first aid kit. Whilst there is no undue cause for alarm, travellers are best advised to travel well-prepared: adequately immunized, with sufficient supplies of prescription drugs, along with a medical kit. Suncream/sunblock is a must. Insect repellent, including a bite spray will also be useful to have.
Footwear is a main priority on this tour. Comfortable walking shoes/boots are recommended, as well as a pair of sandals.
Luggage on tour
Your luggage should not exceed 15kgs, and should have soft sides. One large holdall/rucksack, and one small hand luggage rucksack is acceptable.
Electric Supply & Plugs
Electrical supply is 220V/50 Hz and plugs have three pins like those in the UK.
