A COUNTRY that doesn't exist is a highlight of a 30-day tour of the Horn of Africa with off-the-beaten-track Far Horizons in January next year.

And although all of the world's major powers say there's no such place, guests on this tour will find that Somaliland is building a strong tourism infrastructure, including first-class hotels for those wanting to explore everything from recently-discovered 4000-year-old cave paintings, to historic Ottoman architecture, and in its spectacular mountain countryside, British colonial buildings that still stand as they were when the British abandoned them forty years ago.

This eye-opening and unusual tour will also visit Ethiopia where the Blue Nile begins, one-time French colonial Djibouti, Yemen for a visit to the Imam's Palace and the ruins of the old coffee port of Mokha,  Eritrea with its art deco flourishes and where Mussolini planned his "New Roman Empire,' and Sudan under whose pyramids forty generations of Nubian royalty lay buried.

Price starts from $24,625pp twin-share ex-Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane and from $24,525 ex-Perth, including return air and taxes, all meals, a Far Horizons escort throughout, daily tours with local guides, and entry fees.
