The Republic of Somaliland is an unrecognized country in the Horn of Africa. Internationally recognized as part of Somalia, it has been de facto independent since 1991.
Although Somaliland is considered safe to visit, the number of foreign tourists to the country is still very small. With most Westerners seeing the unrecognzied country as the same as Somalia, they decide to visit other parts of the continent instead.
With that said, tourism to the country is in fact growing and international tourists are beginning to appreciate the untouched and pristine places, nature and historical sites Somaliland has to offer.
