Ever heard of Djibouti? I hadn’t either, until now.
Located between Ethiopia in the west and Somalia in the south, this little country in the Horn of Africa is on the rise for tourist.
If you’re looking to travel to Djibouti make sure you brush up on your French and Arabic as they are the country’s two official languages. Compared to other countries in Africa, Dijbouti is relatively small with a population of over 810,000 people. That does not mean you won’t have the time of your life there.
Located next to the Red Sea, Dijbouti has tons of amazing beaches such as the Red Sea Beach, Khor Ambado, Heron Beach and Siesta Beach to name a few. Temperatures can reach up to 116 degrees during the summer months so a dip in the water is much advised. There are also many mountain ranges, historical sites and local attractions to keep you entertained.
Lodging is not a problem as there are many great options. Want to stay by the beach? Then the Sheraton Djibouti Hotel is for you. Looking for something a little more lavish, then a few nights at the Djibouti Palace Kempinski is the best place for you.
All of this fun in the sun will leave you hungry and boy are you in the right place for a great meal. Djiboutian cuisine is very well rounded, there’s something for almost everyone. Whether you’re in the mood for Somali, Afar, Ethiopian, Yemeni, French, Asian or Indian cuisine, a good meal is certainly not hard to find.
Go ahead and book your trip to Dijbouti, make sure you take some awesome pictures for us.
