    Djibouti + Landscapes

    Landscapes

    On a break zone between Africa and Asia, the land of Djibouti is made of moonlike volcano landscapes, with plateaus following scattered plains and faults, in the middle of eroded basalt rocks and small trees and thorny bushes.

    Coasts

    Constantly warm waters, unique corals home to sharks and multicoloured fish, faults and ridges, underwater cathedrals and pillars : Djibouti is no doubt a technicolor paradise for divers.

    Towns

    In total, there are only around ten cities in Djibouti. Its capital of the same name is important both from an economic and a touristic standpoint. The mosques in Tadjoura, Djibouti's oldest town, are also worth a visit.
