Arrival in Mogadishu:

Your journey begins with an arrival in Mogadishu at 11:05 AM via Ethiopian Airlines. Once you clear immigration and customs, you will be met by our guide, who will accompany you throughout the tour. From there, we will begin our journey through the city.

Mogadishu Old Town – Hamar Weyne: Our first stop is Mogadishu’s old town, Hamar Weyne. This neighborhood is a maze of narrow alleys, traditional houses, and historic landmarks. Here, you can experience the authentic Somali culture and heritage, with centuries-old architecture, bustling markets, and friendly locals. Our guide will take you on a walking tour of the old town, where you can explore the landmarks, including the colonial-era governor’s palace, the famous Lighthouse, and the ruins of the 13th-century Fakr ad-Din Mosque.

Mogadishu Fish Market: Next, we head to the Mogadishu Fish Market, one of the most vibrant and bustling markets in the city. Here, you can witness the daily life of the locals, who come to buy and sell fresh seafood, meat, and vegetables. The market is a feast for the senses, with colorful displays, lively bargaining, and the aroma of spices and fresh fish. You can also try some of the local delicacies, such as grilled lobster, shrimp, and crab, prepared right in front of you.

Other Highlights: Depending on the time and your preferences, our tour can also include other highlights, such as:

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier: This monument honors the Somali soldiers who died during the wars of independence and civil war. It is a symbol of national pride and unity, and a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by the Somali people.

Liido Beach: This beautiful beach is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike, with white sand, clear waters, and a range of activities, from swimming to camel rides. It is a perfect place to relax and soak in the Somali sun.
