Must be a nightmare to drive on these roads during rain season.

wow I actually expected better roads in Somaliland. But when calling it a "rich" and stable country, I guess these comparisons are made to the rest of Somalia.

I have heard that road from Ethiopia to Hargeisa and onto Berbera is quite a good now with new asphalt and so on. It's one of the two most important export roads for Ethiopia also. Roads from Hargeisa and Berbera to Burao may have new asphalt by now also.
But road from Borama to border of Djibouti is still pretty awful. And it would stay like this for some time.

It had a head-on collision with a track at the left. Traveler who made these photos wrote that everyone survived. SUVs like this are ordinary public transport between Hargeisa and Djibouti. One way trip takes anything from 24 hours to one week if there are some flash rains.
