Djibouti - one of the smallest and least known countries

Travel to Djibouti and experience one of the smallest and least known countries, located in Eastern Africa. Experience the lakes, dormant volcanoes, mountains, and beaches, The White City, the capital, Day Forest National Park and much more. The land consists of large parts of the stone canopy, lava and volcanic highlands.
Take a tour to the capital Djibouti city and experience their amazing cuisines, mosques, culture and go for a walk in the park. Djibouti city is strategically located, as it is close to the world's busiest seafront. Djibouti is a very warm country with desert climate. In the capital Djibouti, the average temperature is 30 ° C, with only 25 ° C in the coldest month (January). The country Djibouti receives only little bit rain per year - primarily in October to April. It is therefore ideal to travel to Djibouti during the winter months, as the temperature here will be the lowest.

The oldest city in Djibouti is Tadjoura and is located on the opposite coast of Djibouti city. It takes only 2.5 hours to get from Djibouti town to Tadjoura by ferry, and it is definitely a city to visit. The city of Tadjoura is known for its white buildings and is therefore also called the White City. Take a walk between the white buildings or take a nap on the beach that is close by.

Experience Lake Assal, which is the lowest lying in relation to the ocean's surface in Africa and the third lowest in the world - 155 meters below sea level. Lake Assal is a lake to see. It is located about 40 km from the capital Djibouti, and is definitely a trip worth. The lake is known for its high salt content, and the weather is one of the warmest places on Earth. The temperature can reach up to 50 ° C.

After a trip to Lake Assal, you should experience Lake Abbe, better known as Lake Abhe Bad. This is also a salt lake and is the largest and last of a chain of 6 connected lakes located on the border between Djibouti and Ethiopia. The lake is close to the point - also called Afar Depression - where 3 of the crust's plates move apart from each other quietly. Magma has pushed itself up through small cracks and has thus formed hot springs that resemble the chimneys. The landscape is therefore in a category for itself! It is special and exceptional! Once the plates move completely apart, the Horn of Africa will be an island for itself. Lake Abbe is known to be rich of birds - like pelicans and flamingos. The landscape is so special that it inspired Charlton Heston to record "Planet of the Apes" in 1968 on the shores of Lake Abbe. If you love to travel and experience different scenery, this place is a destination you should visit!
