Take a visit with us to a country that doesn’t officially exist; Somaliland, and a country that has long struggled to shake off its media image of poverty and famine; Ethiopia.
Despite past civil wars that have struck these countries, Somaliland and Ethiopia are true African gems with very welcoming locals with lots of history, wildlife and interesting architectural buildings.
On our tours, we will start in the capital city of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, where we will learn about the local history. We will also visit the markets of Dire Dawa and the beautiful UNESCO site of the walled city of Harar. In Somaliland, we will explore the caves at Las Geel and the coastal resort of Berbera, where we can enjoy freshly caught fish and relax on completely deserted beaches.
Our current upcoming group tours can be seen below. They are all guaranteed departures.
Our Ethiopia and Somaliland tour runs twice a year in February and November.
We also offer an optional pre trip extension to the other worldly Danakil Depression.
Visas are required for both Ethiopia and Somaliland. Ethiopia is an e-visa whilst Somaliland requires an application to be made at a Somaliland Mission in Addis, London or Washington DC. Somaliland Visa on Arrival (VOA) is also possible for some nationalities (please check in advance for eligibility).
Our tours are priced at £1285 per person. Rooms are on a twin basis.
Single supplement is priced at £150 or we can allocate someone for you to share with (subject to availability).
Deposit required to confirm your booking is £250.
Please note that although we only run tours to areas we feel we can keep our clients safe, the British FCO advises against all but essential travel to Hargeisa and Berbera and against all travel to all other areas of Somaliland.
We research the security of our destinations highly and safety is a priority for us, however, we advise you to do your own research as well to ensure you are comfortable with your trip.
Please note these travel warnings may also affect travel insurance for these regions; please contact us for advice on this. For the latest travel advice from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office including security and local laws, plus passport and visa information, click here
