Somalia Location Map

Somalia is in Eastern Africa, next to the Gulf of Aden, the Indian Ocean. It borders just 3 African countries including Kenya, Ethiopia and Djibouti. It’s situated in the Horn of Africa region.

The terrain in Somalia is mostly flat with rising hills in the north. The highest point in Somalia is Mount Shimbiris at 2,460 meters.

One of the biggest challenges in Somalia is its re-occurring droughts and irregular rainfall periods. It’s principally desert, with dust storms in summer.
