split costs for laas gaal and/or berbera?Hi, I'm an independent male traveler in my 20s and will be in somaliland from May 20 to May 25:
May 20: arrive in Hargeisa in the pm
May 21-24: Hargeisa, Laas Gaal, Berbera
May 25: Leave somaliland in the morning
So I basically have 4 whole days in the country and want to spend a day in each of the 3 places of interest (Hargeisa, Laas Gaal, Berbera) with an extra day for whatever, if it so happens that I need that day to plan these day trips from hargeisa. So I'm looking for anyone who will be traveling during that time in Somaliland to split costs for Laas Geel and Berbera.
I also didn't book my hotel yet but I'm thinking about Ambassador or Oriental and will be making a decision in the coming days.
If you're interested in any part, PM me and I'll give you my email address and US phone number. :)

I think five days is a bit short but you should be able to manage it. Other places you can visit are the Daallo Forest & Mountains, Sheik Mountain, Dhagax Khoure ( comparable to Laas Geel) andThe Old City of Zeila. There are many hotels in Hargeisa so it should be easy to find one without having a reservation outside the summer holidays. Try to talk to tourists at the airport or hotel to split the costs. Good luck and have fun.

2Definitely possible.. we arrived Hargeisa on a Wednesday afternoon then flew out of Berbera on Friday morning... seeing Las Geel & Berbera on the Thursday. We stayed at the Oriental, very convenient location. They arranged the transport+Las Geel permits for us as we arrived just after the Ministry had closed.
