TOWN CENTRE Central Hargeisa is an agreeable and intriguing place to wander around, with a friendly easy-going atmosphere and no shortage of hustle and bustle around the market area.

Most panels include a combination of monochromatic and polychromatic animal and human representations, with the most commonly used colors being red, black, white, and yellow ochre. The most important shelter, on the southeast face of Las Geel, has an inclined ceiling where the almost 100m2 surface is daubed with at least 350 individual paintings. Several...

The oldest quarter of Berbera, known locally as Darole, is also the most northerly part of town, hemmed in by the old port to the west, a series of tidal flats to the north, and several recently resettled suburbs to the south and east. Darole itself can be divided into two distinct districts, with a...

Borama is the trio that lies within a 25km radius of the modern town. Abasa, the best preserved of these three ancient ruins, is also the most remote, situated about 25km north of Borama as the crow flies, and double that distance by road.

Around town, The main point of interest in  Sheikh is the extensive  Ferdusa Ruins, which lie on the northern outskirts of town, not even five minutes’ walk from the Maashaalaah Hotel. As accessible as the unexcavated site is, however, not a great deal is known about it, other than it represents the remains of a...

WHAT  TO  SEE  AND  DO  If you arrive in  Burao expecting superlatives,  you’ve come to the wrong place. In most respects, this pleasant town comes across as a scaled-down, dustier and even more prosaic version of the capital, centered upon a bustling central market area where town dwellers and rural visitors get on with the...

A century ago, Ga’an Libah supported large herds of elephant as well as a significant population of the lions for which it is named. There’s nothing quite so exciting there today, but it still protects relatively dense populations of greater and lesser kudu, Speke’s gazelle, dik-dik, gerenuk, Beira, klipspringer, and desert warthog. The cliffs are...

The main – indeed only – road running west from Hargeisa reaches Borama after 115km, a substantial town seldom visited by travellers unless they happen to be heading for Djibouti. This same road provides access to Dhagax Khoure and Dhagax Marodi – important prehistoric rock art sites that have both suffered from recent defacements –...

Erigavo is of interest mainly as the closest town and gateway to the lovely Daallo Forest and the stupendously scenic Tabah Pass, which descends from the escarpment to the port of Maydh.

Around the Scenic Overlook, The 6km dirt road between Karin and the Scenic Overlook is the obvious starting point for any exploration of Daallo, passing as it does through an area of thick highland forest dominated by the coniferous Juniperus procera.

After reaching the base of the escarpment base at Rugay, the road from Erigavo straightens out to run more or less directly across the flat coastal plain, emerging after 33km – about an hour’s drive – at the venerable port of Maydh (N 11°00.320, E  47°06.588).
Read More
Oog and surrounds Situated in the periodically unsettled province of Sool, the endearingly named town of Oog is of little interest to travelers except as the main junction for the more popular of the two routes to Erigavo. The presence of two adequate hotels also makes it a potential overnight alternative to Burao prior to...
