Djibouti is a tiny country in Eastern Africa and this Djibouti Travel Guide includes all its highlights. It borders Eritrea in the north, Ethiopia in the south and west and Somalia in the east. It has a coastline at the Gulf of Aden.
Djibouti is barren and most is wasteland. In the north there are mountains and a coastal desert with mangroves. It has salt lakes which look like alien landscapes. There are several national parks with wildlife, mainly species of gazelle and ostriches. It’s home to some of the best rock art in Africa as well.
Djibouti city serves as a port city for cargo that goes inland. There is a military presence to protect the Gulf of Aden which makes it a safe country. Djibouti might not be the first destination you think of in Africa but check this Djibouti travel guide and you will understand why it’s a great destination.
