Welcome to the update website for the Bradt Guide to Somaliland by Philip Briggs

For recent reader updates, consult the posts or categories opposite, or search on the topic that interests you.

To add your own news, views or update material, fill in a reply below or a comment form, or send me an email, and I’ll generate a new post as soon as I can.


Posts on this update site are mostly culled directly from reader feeback and I have not verified them first-hand. All opinions and assessments are those of the individual correspondent, and their inclusion should not be mistaken for a direct endorsement by Bradt.

The update website is a free service to readers and can be used without obligation. However, travellers to Somaliland are encouraged to contribute their impressions and updates for the benefit of those who follow in their footsteps.

Finally, if you do find Bradt Somaliland useful, you’ll be doing me a big favour by posting a review on http://www.amazon.com, http://www.amazon.co.uk or a similar online bookseller.

    This guide is really helpful for people who are going to travel in Somaliland. There is great hospitality and wonderful service in this internationally unrecognized country. Berbera & Las-geel were amazing, & we had a great time. Somaliland Travel & Tourism made everything so easy & enjoyable.

    I’m glad I found out about this blog since I’m planning to visit Somaliland in August … I already brought the Bradt-Guide. Has anyone been there? Any recommendations NOT to go due to safety reasons? Is it possible to enter via Ethiopia overland?

    By far the most detailed book out there for Somaliland. A lot of information about history and culture for a better understanding of the country, It includes even maps even though Somaliland doesn’t have street names:). Some info about the tour operators in the book is a bit outdated. We eventually found one that was amazing and took us even to Djibouti for a tour. Somaliland Travel http://www.somalilandtravel.com
