Tour Details

Somaliland and Eritrea are both located in the Horn of Africa, making them a perfect combination for a six-day tour of both countries. In Somaliland, visitors can explore the ancient port of Berbera in the Red Sea, the capital city of Hargeisa, as well as view the spectacular rock art of Laas Geel.

Asmara, the capital city of Eritrea, is a UNESCO World Heritage site, as is the Red Sea. It is a fantastic experience to visit Asmara and Massawa together. A combined tour of Somaliland and Eritrea allows you to experience the best of both countries at once.
