Djibouti Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 42%, Djibouti is another one of those stereotypical "undiscovered" countries that for some inexplicable reason has remained pretty much off the international travel radar. While this still happens occasionally, it's becoming more rare, and it's PlanetHop!'s intention to blow Djibouti's cover. The reason for this is simply that it is a terrific travel destination. Djibouti has fantastic beaches along the crystal clear, turquoise waters of the Gulf of Tadjoura, as well as a network of coral islands - Moucha Island - where you can experience some of the most amazing snorkeling in all of East Africa. You can head inland on a truly classic journey - by caravan - to the salt-rich waters of Lake Assal , Africa's lowest point. But not to be outdone, the journey should continue to the bizarre lunar landscapes of Lac Abbé, a place that provided the backdrop for the original Planet of the Apes film and where you can view colorful flocks of flamingos and pelicans who call the place home. Come for a week and spend a month, but don't be surprised if even this isn't enough!
