Mogadishu is a bustling, thriving centre of commerce and culture, poised on the Horn of Africa and captures the imagination as the capital city and largest urban centre of Somalia. Plan ahead and book your flights to Mogadishu to get an authentic taste of this fascinating city that has witnessed so much history unfold within it. Mogadishu is situated in the Banaadir region, which overlooks the gorgeous blue hues of the Indian Ocean. Mogadishu itself is referred to as Xamar in the local language, but it is also informally known as the White Pearl of the Indian, a title it gleaned when it was under Italian colonial rule. Despite going through a brief period of intense civil unrest, Mogadishu is seeing immense reconstruction to occupy a place amongst the greatest African cities in the modern era.

Terrain & Climate

The city of Mogadishu sits pretty on the coast of the Indian Ocean on the Horn of Africa. Divided into sixteen districts, it is chock full of sights to see and enjoy. Mogadishu also witnesses a strain of the might Shebelle River, which starts in Central Ethiopia, makes a splash near the Somali capital and then veers southwest. The river allows the cultivation of bananas, sugarcane, and cotton. When you are planning your budget flights to Mogadishu, try and time your arrival here between the months of June and August, as temperatures drop to a refreshing cool, before climbing again in September.

Movers & Shakers

Traditionally, Mogadishu was an important centre of commerce and finance, as it witnessed the export of textiles manufactured within the city. Since the pacification of 2011, Mogadishus economy has soared in productivity, as witnessed by the reopening of the local Coca Cola Factory as well as the SomalFruit processing facility. 2012 saw the opening of the First Somali Bank in the capital, which made headlines as it is the first financial entity established in the region since 1991. Mogadishus real estate industry also received a boost owing to foreign investment from Turkey. Large international firms have established a presence in the city, signaling a new wave of prosperity for Mogadishu.

Things to do

There are numerous attractions guaranteed to capture your imagination when your flights to Mogadishu arrive. The city is peppered with a beautiful selection of mosques, with the oldest being the Arbaa Rukun Mosque, built in 667.
