Welcome to Daallo Forest
Some 16km northeast of Erigavo lies the village of Karin, which is the gateway to the majestic Daallo Forest. It’s one of the best places in Somaliland to see birds, including a host of endemics, and mammals. From Karin, a dirt track leads through the forest to a lookout, reached after 5km. The lookout is perched on the edge of a vast canyon that plummets dramatically and offers hallucinogenic views down into the valley, more than 2000m below. On a clear day you can see all the way to the Gulf of Aden, some 30km away.
