Sub-region: East Africa
Capital : Djibouti
Djibouti is a country in eastern Africa of approximately 23,200 km2 belonging to the Horn of Africa and located at the entrance of the Red Sea. The Republic of Djibouti is bounded on the east by the Gulf of Aden, southeast by Somalia, nestled in the south and west by Ethiopia and north by Eritrea. The country has a long coastline of 370 km, which overlooks the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden. This tiny country makes up for its small size by a multitude of breathtaking geological resources. Few countries in the world offer such diversity. Djiboutian landscapes are dotted with gigantic canyons, basaltic plains through iodine lakes and extinct volcanoes as well as limestone chimneys spewing steam puffs. Let’s not forget its opening to the sea which allows to practice various water activities (kiteboarding, diving etc.) Except for Djibouti City, the country positively lacks large-scale development, making it an ideal place for ecotourism.

Editor’s words Djibouti, because its charms are still unknown. In particular, its stunning seabeds since the country is bordered by the Red Sea.
