Djibouti is in northeast Africa, at the tip of the Horn of Africa, and at the entrance to the Red Sea. It borders Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Somalia.
It is a small country, about the size of Wales (UK). But it packs a punch, with some stunning places to visit. For example Lac Assal, at the lowest point in Africa, fringed by dazzling salt flats. And Lac Abbe, in its landscape of limestone chimneys. If you want to chill out, Moucha Island is ideal.
In summer Djibouti gets very hot, so the best time to visit this beautiful country is between October and April.
