Somalia unravelled

For anyone even contemplating a visit to Somaliland – or even less likely one of the other parts of what used to be Somalia – this detailed Wikipedia map is worth poring over.

The most recent “autonomous” creation is Jubaland, a sort of buffer zone near the Kenya border intended to keep Al-Shabaab jihadists well to the northeast.


About Richard Trillo

I'm the author of Rough Guides to Kenya, Madagascar and West Africa, and co-author of Rough Guides to First-Time Africa and The Gambia. I was formerly editor of the African chapters of the Rough Guide to World Music. The blogs for Kenya, West Africa and First-Time Africa are a way for me to post news for readers and for readers to keep in touch with me and with info from other travellers, posting updates, news and comments. Or that's the idea. To be honest the blogs barely get any attention from me these days. I am the Kenya Programme Manager at the safari tour operator Expert Africa and was previously a freelance writer, editor and PR consultant, and before that Director of Communications at the publisher Rough Guides.
