10 Best Destinations to Visit in Djibouti

Though it occupies a tiny corner in Northern Africa, Djibouti 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.

A Tourist's Guide to Djibouti

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.

What is DJIBOUTI?

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?

Djibouti

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.

El Salvador Needs to be on Your Bucket List

Did you know that El Salvador is smaller than Massachusetts, but has HUNDREDS of volcanoes?!

I had the opportunity to visit El Salvador a few weeks ago on a tour with Salvadorean Tours, and I was blown away by the natural beauty, hospitable people and tasty food (hello #pupusas)! We went all over the country, hiking volcanoes, visiting small villages, touring big cities, etc -- and I loved every second of being there.

El Salvador, unfortunately, gets a bad reputation on the news & media for being unsafe, and therefore, many tourists avoid going there. I'm here to tell you not to listen to the news and come visit for yourself to see how truly spectacular this country is. I'm not saying crime doesn't exist there (crime is everywhere) -- but as long as you take normal precautions and use common sense (i.e. avoid dangerous areas at night), then you will be fine. Salvadorean People are warm and friendly, and almost everyone is open to having a genuine conversation.

I hope this video changes your perspectives on the beauty of El Salvador.

Travel Africa: Djibouti, Last visit in Africa

Here is a quick video at one of the saltiest lakes in the world. It was my last stop on my trip through Africa.

Somaliland is NOT What You Think...

Have you ever heard of Somaliland?! I am absolutely SHOCKED by how amazing this place is. I never expected this!!!

Since 1991, my birth year, Somaliland has been a self-declared region of Somalia and has been seeking international independence since then (which it truly deserves to get). They have their own government, currency, flag, military, and I even had to get a separate Somaliland visa to get inside.

Somaliland strikes a drastic contrast with its neighbor as a land of peace, democratic stability and safety.

I am not just saying this to sound cool, or for the video's sake, but SOMALILAND IS THE SAFEST I'VE FELT OVER THE LAST 2 MONTHS IN AFRICA. By a long shot. I can walk the streets freely at night without worrying about a thing. I have not felt pressure, once, from people trying to scam me. Everyone is so friendly, honest, and welcoming. It's also very cheap, which is a breathe of fresh air for me.

This video accurately displays my thoughts and first impressions of Somaliland -- I can't wait to explore more around this country all week long!

Thank you to my friends at Damal Hotel in Hargeisa for the incredible hospitality!
