10 Best Places to Visit in Djibouti



Heyy everyone,

I present you, after a long work, my vlog on Djibouti, my homecountry, also available in french on my channel,
I had the opportunity to live in Djibouti until I was 7 years old, since then I go back there every one / two years to see my family there.
This year, we visited all the touristic places of the country, for my cousins, that came from France, I thus benefited from it to film evrerything!
I really hope you enjoyed this vlog, it's about my experience, my vacation.
I tried to represent my country with its good and bad parts, its wealth but also its poverty, in short I tried to approach reality. In fact, my reality.
I am open to all criticisms, positive or negative, as long as they are constructive!

Don't try to vlog in Djibouti (My experience in the most camera-phobic country I've ever visited) ????????

From Ethiopia, I headed north to the small nation of Djibouti, perched on the Red Sea & Gulf of Aden directly across from Yemen, on the horn of Africa. I had been so excited to begin my journey here - but my enthusiasm quickly faded when I realized that this is no country for a travel vlogger (I should have known this, given Drew Binsky's experiences here on his trip). Everywhere I turned, I was accosted by unfriendly, aggressive Police officers who resorted to intimidation and bribery in order for me to continue filming my experiences in the diminutive capital of Djibouti City.

The Djiboutian locals that I met were invariably kind and understanding - they being the unfortunate victims of their own corrupt police, which are highly averse to tourism and tourists in general. The constant threats of fines and possible jail time completely ruined my two days in this small nation. I am hopeful that, should the people of Djibouti demand it, the corruption that plagues the nation (and that causes tourists to flee) will be no more, and the nation would be a tourist-friendly haven in the horn of Africa. Until then, this country is best skipped by the solo traveler.

I mean no disrespect to the people of Djibouti - I sympathize with them that you Djiboutians to live in a country where the Police serve to ruin the nation's economy by driving tourism from their country. Please know, these are just my own experiences - others may experience something very different.

I fly into this seldom visited east African nation. For my first day, I amble around Djibouti City, taking in the sights, sounds and chaos. Day two sees me driving West to Lake Assal, a huge salt lake that is Africa's lowest point.

Country in East Africa
Eritrea is a northeast African country on the Red Sea coast. It shares borders with Ethiopia, Sudan and Djibouti. The capital city, Asmara, is known for its Italian colonial buildings, like St. Joseph's Cathedral, as well as art deco structures. Italian, Egyptian and Turkish architecture in Massawa reflect the port city's colorful history. Notable buildings here include St. Mariam Cathedral and the Imperial Palace. ― Google

Capital of Eritrea
Asmara is the capital city of Eritrea, a country in the Horn of Africa. It's known for its Italian colonial buildings, like the Catholic Cathedral. The city's eclectic architecture ranges from art deco cinemas to the Futurist, airplane-shaped Fiat Tagliero service station. The grand former governor's palace dates from the 19th century. Close by is the ornate Opera House, built in the early 1900s in a mix of styles. ― Google

Have you ever heard of the country called DJIBOUTI? If not, don't feel embarrassed... because it's a very tiny country on the Horn of Africa that gets minimal tourism -- roughly 70,000 visitors per year.

Over the last 2 days, I have explore every facet of the capital & biggest city called Djibouti City. I find this place to be the most interesting country in Africa.

Here are some of my quick realizations:

- It's VERY EXPENSIVE -- I have spent more than $400 in the last 2 days and I haven't done much other than walk around, take a few taxis, eat 4 meals & sleep (keep in mind my visa was $90 and my hotel was $105).

- Walking around the streets feels very much like France, from the colonization period that started in 1884 and ended in 1977. The people here speak French (first), Arabic (second) and English (third, if any at all).

- There is a LOT OF SECURITY everywhere -- police/military guards standing on every corner (literally) with giant guns strapped to their backs. It is kind of crazy and very intimidating, but safe.

- About a quarter of Djibouti's population (~250,000 people) are living in extreme poverty, which is more extreme than you'd think given that this country is so expensive. A massive contrast between rich & poor.

All of my thoughts on this mysterious country, and more, are in this video. Have you ever been to Djibouti?

You will definitely would wish to travel to Djibouti after watching this video. Turquoise salt lakes, limestone chimneys puffing out steam, hot springs, and flocks of flamingos bright pink against extinct volcanoes provide otherworldly drama in the interior, while Djibouti’s coast is home to pristine beaches and waters where whale sharks swim.

Djibouti is in East Africa, bordered by Eritrea to the north, Ethiopia to the west and south, and Somalia to the southeast. The Gulf of Aden lies to the east. The country can be divided into three regions; the coastal plain and volcanic plateaus in the central and southern parts of the country and the mountain ranges in the north.

Djibouti - the capital and largest city
Ali Sabieh
Khor Angar

Other destinations
Lake Abhe on the Ethiopian border is a desolate, steaming lake surrounded by limestone chimneys and a lunar-esque landscape used as the Forbidden Zone in Planet of the Apes
Lake Assal is Africa's lowest point (157m below sea level) and the saltiest lake outside Antarctica. Its shores are largely salt pans and nearby is Ardoukoba, which last erupted in 1978.
Maskali Island
Moucha Island

Djibouti has a lot of sights to see throughout the country. Though some areas are barren and poverty stricken, there are still remarkable landscapes and places to visit and see.

Djibouti city. The rising capital and largest city in Djibouti, it acts also as an administrative province. The city hosts a national archives and national library, allowing visitors to learn more about the history of Djibouti. The city also acts as a major transportation hub. Djibouti city shows different aspects of culture, while the majority of the country's population resides around the city. Many who live there are from Somalia, Ethiopia, and Yemen. There are a few mosques throughout the city for worship as there's a predominantly Muslim population.
Lac Assal. 150m below sea level, Lake Assal is the second-lowest point on Earth. You'll need to hire a car or ask someone who lives in Djibouti to drive you there. Expect a rough ride: the roads outside the capital are destroyed by the truck traffic between Djibouti and Ethiopia. The road passes within sight of the Devil's Island, and some impressive views. Expect to be awestruck.
Lac Abbe. Lac Abbe's surreal and outerworldy landscape are the highlight of a trip to Djibouti. It's located in a remote location, near the Ethiopian border, and it's convenient to get a local guide in Dikhil before going off-road for the 80kms until the lake.

Lac Abbe, Djibouti - Off the beaten track adventure in East Africa - Best places to visit in Africa.

Ever heard of Djibouti. Well it is a small country in East Africa. With neighbours like Somalia, Eritrea and Yemen it is not well know as a holiday destination ! Actually Djibouti sees very few travellers except for the whale shark season. It is one of the best places to spot these gentle giants. And if you have a day to spend without diving before flying out we highly recommend to stay a bit longer and organise yourself a two day trip to the Ancient Lakes of Lac Abbe. However we do recommend to visit from November till March since then the temperatures are more comfortable. The landscapes are amazing and you might get to meet the local Nomads heading their cattle and Camels. Your only accommodation available is the Lac Abbe camp. So with a bucket shower and sleeping in a local hut its a true experience. But the views are worth it !!

Enjoy our video and also checkout our Lac Abbe video if you really like to go off the beaten track!

Filmed with the DJI Mavic Air and Sony A7III

Jamais entendu parler de Djibouti. Eh bien, c'est un petit pays d'Afrique de l'Est. Avec des voisins comme la Somalie, l'Érythrée et le Yémen, il n'est pas bien connu comme destination de vacances! En fait, Djibouti voit très peu de voyageurs sauf pour la saison des requins baleines. C'est l'un des meilleurs endroits pour repérer ces gentils géants. Et si vous avez une journée à passer sans plonger avant de prendre l'avion, nous vous recommandons vivement de rester un peu plus longtemps et de vous organiser une excursion de deux jours dans les anciens lacs du lac Abbe. Cependant, nous recommandons de visiter de novembre à mars car les températures sont plus confortables. Les paysages sont incroyables et vous pourriez rencontrer les nomades locaux qui dirigent leur bétail et leurs chameaux. Votre seul hébergement disponible est le camp du Lac Abbe. Donc, avec une douche au seau et dormir dans une cabane locale, c'est une véritable expérience. Mais les vues en valent la peine !!

Profitez de notre vidéo et regardez également notre vidéo du Lac Abbe si vous aimez vraiment sortir des sentiers battus!

Schon mal was von Dschibuti gehört. Nun, es ist ein kleines Land in Ostafrika. Mit Nachbarn wie Somalia, Eritrea und Jemen ist es als Urlaubsziel nicht bekannt! Tatsächlich sieht Dschibuti außer der Walhai-Saison nur sehr wenige Reisende. Es ist einer der besten Orte, um diese sanften Riesen zu entdecken. Und wenn Sie vor dem Abflug einen Tag ohne Tauchen verbringen möchten, empfehlen wir Ihnen dringend, etwas länger zu bleiben und einen zweitägigen Ausflug zu den alten Seen des Lac Abbe zu organisieren. Wir empfehlen jedoch einen Besuch von November bis März, da die Temperaturen seitdem angenehmer sind. Die Landschaften sind fantastisch und Sie können die lokalen Nomaden treffen, die ihre Rinder und Kamele anführen. Ihre einzige verfügbare Unterkunft ist das Camp Lac Abbe. Mit einer Eimerdusche und dem Schlafen in einer örtlichen Hütte ist dies eine echte Erfahrung. Aber die Aussicht ist es wert !!

Genießen Sie unser Video und sehen Sie sich auch unser Lac Abbe-Video an, wenn Sie wirklich gerne abseits der ausgetretenen Pfade unterwegs sind!

Ooit gehoord van Djibouti. Nou, het is een klein land in Oost-Afrika. Met buren als Somalië, Eritrea en Jemen is het niet zo bekend als vakantiebestemming! Eigenlijk ziet Djibouti maar heel weinig reizigers behalve het walvishaai-seizoen. Het is een van de beste plekken om deze vriendelijke reuzen te spotten. En als je een dag te besteden hebt zonder te duiken voordat je wegvliegt, raden we je ten zeerste aan om wat langer te blijven en een tweedaagse trip naar de oude meren van Lac Abbe te organiseren. We raden echter aan om van november tot maart te bezoeken, aangezien de temperaturen dan aangenamer zijn. De landschappen zijn verbluffend en je zou de lokale nomaden kunnen ontmoeten die hun vee en kamelen voeren. Je enige beschikbare accommodatie is het Lac Abbe-kamp. Dus met een emmerdouche en slapen in een lokale hut is het een ware belevenis. Maar de uitzichten zijn het waard !!

Geniet van onze video en bekijk ook onze Lac Abbe-video als je echt van de gebaande paden houdt!

听说过吉布提。嗯,这是东非的一个小国。与索马里,厄立特里亚和也门等邻国一起,作为度假胜地并不为人所知!实际上,除鲸鲨季节外,吉布提的游客很少。这是发现这些温柔巨人的最佳场所之一。而且,如果您有一天没有潜水就可以消磨时光,我们强烈建议您多待一会,并安排自己前往拉克阿贝古湖两日游。但是,我们建议您从11月到3月参观,因为这样气温会更舒适。风景令人惊叹,您可能会遇到当地的游牧民族,他们以牛和骆驼为食。您唯一可用的住宿是Lac Abbe营地。因此,使用桶式淋浴和在当地小屋中睡觉是一种真正的体验。但意见是值得的!

欣赏我们的视频,如果您真的想超越常规,还可以观看我们的Lac Abbe视频!

Most Attractive Places in Djibouti || Mew Play

Djibouti definitely falls into the category of small things that have a big pay-off.
Though it occupies a tiny corner in Northern Africa, it has copious amounts of beauty and sites that you really can’t
believe unless you’ve seen them for yourself. Few places have such a variety of landscapes – like volcanoes,
sinking plains, limestone chimneys with steam coming from the top, salt lakes, grand canyons, and gorgeous plateaus.
For those that love outdoor adventure, you’ll have plenty to keep you busy here. Enjoy snorkelling with the sharks,
diving, kite surfing, and hiking. The country isn’t overly developed outside of the capital so spending time here makes
for the perfect eco-travel experience as you get a peek of ancient nomadic life.
