    1. Day 1 Arrive in Mogadishu

      Pick up at the airport.
      Representatives will assist you with obtaining your visa on arrival and take you to your guesthouse for a briefing. Afterward, you’ll go on an orientation tour around the city, including an opportunity to swim at Lido beach, walk through the ruined Italian colonial architecture and see the monument to the unknown soldier. You will have a chance to use the security team’s experience and that of a local fixer who has worked with several journalists to get an insight into life in Mogadishu today.

    2. Day 2 Mogadishu

      Once again, armed with your security team and fixer you’ll be able to visit the markets, bazaars, and beaches of this traumatised yet vibrant city. This will include the harbour and lighthouse area.

    3. Day 3 Airport

      Your security escort will drop you at the airport to catch your flight. No sightseeing on the final day.

    Accommodation

    The accommodation is in a secure guest house. You will have a private room with wifi.

    Trips to Somalia create dangers all of their own. While we want you to have as much freedom as possible, we must state that the leader has the final word in regards to changing the itinerary for safety-related reasons. The route we have chosen passes through areas that we consider to be stable. However, we may have to alter the route or cancel sections of the trip at short notice if things change.
