City overview

Hargeisa is the capital of the Somaliland region, Somalia. Not normally the first place that springs to mind as a tourist destination, Hargeisa and the area, however, can be enjoyed with a little forward planning. After your flight to Hargeisa lands, you will be welcomed warmly to this rapidly growing city. Hargeisa has a developing cultural life, a growing urban skyline and, of course, the problems that come with a rapidly growing population. You won’t be overrun with other tourists here, but you will find that most people speak English. On arrival the first thing you will notice is the noise – mobile phones competing with calls to prayers and vehicle horns. As you explore this city of contrasts, admire the exterior of the modern Jama Mosque with its domed roof and tall twin minarets. Look out for the Somali Air force MiG fighter jet which crashed during the civil war. It now stands proudly on display surrounded by colourful murals depicting war scenes. In the central market you will find everything from perfume to pasta, electronics to emeralds and pyramids of delicious looking fruit and vegetables. The long journey to Laas Geel is well worth making. It is a complex of caves and rock shelters that contain amazingly well-preserved cave paintings. Dating from around 9,000 B.C., these are the earliest known art on the African continent.

It is important to note that in Hargeisa all women must wear long dresses or skirts and cover their hair and upper arms. Men should not wear shorts or vests. If you do decide to venture out of Hargeisa you must apply for permission and take a government security guard with you, your hotel will be able to advise on this. Always ask for permission before using your camera as there are lots of restrictions on what can or can’t be photographed.
