Leading us neatly on from our last hotspot, the Laas Geel reside between the dusty ridges and hills just on the outskirts of the Somaliland capital, Hargeisa.
Home to some of the earliest cave paintings ever discovered on the Horn of Africa, the various alcoves and underground tunnels here display a raw and haunting vision of prehistory in these parts.
You’ll be able to make out colourful motifs of cattle, artistic renditions of shepherds tending to their flocks, and even what’s thought to be deified cows! The best thing though? The Laas Geel is hardly developed at all, leaving visitors alone with history.
