Islamic Holiday Weekend

Mawlid, "Birth of the Prophet", is expected to be on Sunday the 10th of November, giving everyone a 3 day weekend to explore Africa's secret destination.

Introducing Somaliland

The name Somaliland conjures up images of violence associated with Somalia, but the reality could not be more different. The people are mostly friendly and the capital city Hargeisa is rather laid back, as far as cities go.

Somaliland restored its independence in 1991 after the collapse of Somalia as a result of the civil war. Since then it has established and sustained peace and stability. It remains a self-declared sovereign state with a democratically elected government. After more than 20 years of peace and democracy, it is still seeking international recognition. Therefore Somaliland offers an authentic and one-of-a-kind experience in a breakaway state which isn’t officially recognized.

Somaliland offers plenty of unexpected and wonderful surprises. Admire some exceptional rock paintings, feel the pulse of the fast-growing capital, walk along deserted beaches, visit bustling market towns, be awed by stunning landscapes – wherever you go, you’ll feel like a pioneer. More than anything, though, it is the Somali people who make a visit to the country so memorable, with their legendary sense of hospitality.
