Located in what is popularly called Horn of Africa, Djibouti is surrounded by other countries such as Somalia, Eritrea and Ethiopia. It is also one of the least populated countries in the world, owing to the hot and arid climate that it has. However, it also enjoys an advantageous location near the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden. This location also contributes much to its economy, as Djibouti serves as a transport hub to most countries around it. Djibouti is an independent state, and it receives economic and security assistance from France, with which it has strong diplomatic ties.

The region is strategically located near the coastline, and there are several salt lakes that you can visit. With the We'ima Wenz supplying water to the area, you’ll definitely enjoy your stay.
