The Maansoor Hotel is popular with many visitors to Hargeisa. One of its major assets is that one can walk around the perimeter to get some exercise. The grounds have been planted with many trees, mostly introduced ornamentals but there are some native species. In addition there are, as anywhere weeds. This checklist was constructed to add interest to the perimeter walk and help those who, like myself, would like to become familiar with plants they see. It is in the early stages of developent. Eventually there will be images of all the species and an interactive identification key.
