Djibouti Uncovered 890 , 6 Days

Join us on a journey to one of the smallest and least known countries in Africa rich in lakes, dormant volcanoes and forests – Djibouti! We will admire the strikingly beautiful landscape of this tiny country, like the jaw-droopingly impressive Lac Abbe – the geological wonder with limestone chimneys and Lake Assal – the lowest point in Africa, contrasting the lush greenery and waterfalls of the Day Forest. We shall stroll along the streets of Tadjourah, called The White city because of its whitewashed buildings and we shall have a well-deserved rest on the beach of Sable Blanc – one of the best places for relax. But perhaps the most lasting impression will be the people we will meet – proud of their country with a legendary sense of hospitality.

Djibouti, the cultural melting pot of African, Arabic and Indian Ocean influences, carries an air of excitement that more popular destinations fail to match!

Highlights of the tour:
♦ Lake Abbe and Lake Assal – the lowest point in Africa
♦ Tadjoura – The White City
