Djibouti is a rreally really nice country to visit,it's situated between the red sea & the Indian Ocean...With Somalia in the South & Ethiopia & Erithrea to the left hand side...

It's hidden in the corner of Africa... I go there every year for at least 1month&half....P.S: It's a little expensive,though....

We have Plateaux,Plaines&Mountains & we have a sleeping volcano....

I hope that helps a little bit....

P.S:Djibouti is called the "Horn Of Africa"

Thanks, although strange that it is expensive? Is it a rich country...can't imagine that?

BTW, is'nt Somalia called the horn of Africa...because..well, it looks like horn?;)

It is expensive because all the military are booked into all the hotels in the city due to this supposedly new"terrorism",which means that visitors are finding hard to come&visit.

Djibouti also has a Lac called"Lac Assal"which is made of"Salt".
Nomads come from all the neighbouring countries to come&helps themselves to this amazing lake.

Djibouti is not bad economy wise....It has its up&down....

P.S:Somalia might look it's the Horn Of Africa But it's not,it's Djibouti...

Pff, I am sorry to say, but Djibouti may be part of the horn of africa, it's not the horn of africa itself, that's really somalia.
Actually, offically the horn of africa is the somalia peninsula and sometimes the greater region of somalia, djibouti, ehtiopia and eritrea is called this way (wikipedia stuff).
On a travellers site it's important to give the right information I think, otherwise we all get confused....
