Wild Expeditions Dalloo is a private mobile camp set and struck at the base of Mount Shimbrus, near Erigavo, in the Cal Madow range of north-central Somaliland. As well as Dalloo, Wild Expeditions operates throughout Somaliland, experiencing much of what this relatively unexplored country has to offer, from the cave paintings of Laas Geel to the cities of Berbera and Hargeisa.
Wild Expeditions Private Mobile Camp is the result of decades worth of on-the-ground experience. Originally Abaca, it has been based in Ethiopia since 2010, expanded into Somaliland in 2015, and is now a joint shareholding between Wild Enterprise (an impact investor) and Ethiopia-based shareholders. Wild Enterprise is dedicated to helping preserve the wildernesses in which it operates, and Daalloo is one of the country’s gems, a wonderful forested highlands overlooking the Gulf of Aden.
A genuine frontier experience, Wild Expeditions Private Mobile Camp is an entirely canvas affair, and consists of a mess tent and sleeping tents. Imported from South Africa, the tents are comfortable but basic, with sturdy canvas walls and floors, the latter reinforced by thick camping mats. Each tent contains double or twin beds, a veranda and en-suite facilities that include hot water and a flush-toilet.
Set and struck every few days, activities with Wild Expeditions Private Mobile Camp include cultural visits, guided walks and sundowners.
