Tour Details

Overview

Somalia is on the Horn of Africa and links between the Arab world and the African yet with a flavor all of its own. Essentially the country is divided into 5 autonomous regions including Puntland and the self-declared Somaliland government.

Think Somalia and what springs to mind? PiratesCivil WarIslamic militants? Suffice to say it’s not your average holiday destination.

Until 2012 the country had been without a government for two lawless decades and, although the fractured nation had witnessed a period of relative stability recently, it remains highly dangerous.

Somalia is isolated for two decades due to the severe instability in the region but we can now take small groups to the capital of Somalia Mogadishu, Kismayo, and Puntland.

Overnight in Tooxin.

From there we will meet our boats and return to Bargal. A long day. Overnight in Bargal.
