All around great trip. Company was very responsive with all questions and helped set something up with a short amount of time. Lake assal was awesome, Akram was a great guide and everything went smoothly. Highly recommend.

I am a woman solo traveller and very happy to make Djibouti and Somaliland, that was kind of a heartfelt journey. Even this was only a 5 day trip, I got a very good impression especially about Somaliland. The Tour Organisator was very professional! Communication, Information about Visa, covid testing were fantastic. They provide you with inviting letters for the easy doing Visa applications. The price of the tour was absolutely fair. The hotels they booked where one oft he best in all citys. They also took care about the flight booking between Djibouti and Hargeysa. They provide you with a safe car. My driver Akram in Djibouti was a friendly, caring person and Lake Assal and Djibouti city was nice to explore. Somaliland: The locals were just wonderful. In the rural areas they were very shy but kids face brightened up when I handed some candys over. I was exhausted every evening just from talking to so many people. I am glad that camels, goats& donkeys can not talk, otherwise I would be still in the country. The Damal hotel in Hargeisa had a lovely, modern restaurant and outside terrasse-palmgarden. It was a relaxing place & I enjoyed to sit next to the splashing fontaine while the Muezzin called to prayer. Staff was very friendly. My driver & guide Mohamed was fantastic. He had a good sense of humor, we laughed much. He was a very educated person and I learned a lot about the country. The sunset swim in Berbera was georgeous. My hotel (Maansoor) was next to the beach. The day ended unexpected touring with a group of lovely Europeans & the Mayor of Berbera to look at new projects who were just set up (new bus station, solar street lights, planted trees, pavements). They have done much in Berbera and I think there is much more to come to make this little seaside village need. The Heritage side of Las Gheel was an unspoiled place. I was impressed how well the wall paintings were preserved. Thanks to Somaliland Travel Agency, especially Abdilahi, Akram and Mohamed. Well done! I am sure I will be coming back one day.

First, I was researching tour agencies to help with my trip to Djibouti. I heard it can be a little difficult to do it without. I liked Somaliland Travel Agency for a couple of reasons... the founder was a Somali Civil War refugee, so I felt like I was supporting a native, plus they followed up with me and checked in constantly, which I think communication is key. I had a short trip to Djibouti and did the 2-day/1 night Lac Abbe and Lac Assal trip. It was pretty sweet! My favorite part of the experience was that since tourism is very low right now, I had the main attractions basically all to myself. The driver manuevered the bumpy roads very well and the guide was very knowledgeable. The unfortunate thing is that tourism is very low right now, and Djibouti is a place you should not miss (well, maybe avoid the summer time- it gets REALLY HOT!). Check it out and book with Somaliland Travel Agency. They will help you navigate through everything (COVID tests, moving flights, answering my millions of questions, you name it).

I travelled solo to Somaliland in mid April 2022 for one week, both as a tourist but also as a writer working on a story. My experience with Somaliland Travel Agency was excellent. Firstly, organising the visas was very simple - all done efficiently and promptly via email. Once in the country, everything went smoothly from pick up through to departure. My itinerary had to be flexible, as I was working on a project which required a degree of uncertainty. My guide was extremely accommodating to these evolving requests, and was able to leverage his personal networks and skills to grant me access to individuals I would never have been able to meet without travelling with Somaliland Travel Agency. For independent travellers used to travelling solo or on a shoestring budget, he costs might be slightly prohibitive. But in my view, every dollar spent with Somaliland Travel Agency was worth it in terms of access, flexibility, translation and fixing services, and easy transport around the country. Highly recommend.

I booked the 4 day / 3 nights highlight of Somaliland tour and loved it. Even we visited Dhagax Guure as my flight left only in the afternoon. My guide Abdilahi was great in arranging everything for me making it a wonderful experience. I fully recommend this agency to anyone coming to Somaliland.
