Whale Sharks
Djibouti is among a few places which the harmless whale sharks are known to visit on an annual basis. From September to January, divers and snorkelers can swim with these giant fishes without any risk apart from unintentionally being touched by the shark's large tail fin. Swimming with Whale Sharks - a truly unique experience!

Lac Assal
Lac Assal (Lake Assal) is the lowest point in Africa at 155m below sea level. As there are no rivers flowing out of the lake, it is ten times saltier than the ocean and is the most saline body of water in the world. It is an only two hour drive from Djibouti City, located in an impressing landscape surrounded by inactive volcanoes, hot springs and lava fields.

Under Water
Snorkeling and diving in this truly unique ecosystem where the waters of the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean meet, is a breathtaking experience. The abundance of marine life in the waters of Djibouti makes it one of the world's top spots for diving and deep sea fishing.

Volcanic Crater
The Ardoukoba Volcano is located some 100km west of Djibouti City. During the eruption of 1978 the dormant giant produced a lot of lava streams which were flowing down to the Red Sea. It has a small cinder cone on the top since then.

Tadjourah is a surprise right from the start. Not because of all the white buildings, nor because it is the ''city of the seven mosques'', but because of its thoroughly maritime character. The city was built a very long time ago, over a well and is based on fishing and trade from its beginning to nowadays.

Lac Abbe
Visiting Lac Abbe is indeed an enchanting experience. The sunrises and sunsets are just majestic.A landscape with hundreds of clay chimneys from one or two meters high. Enjoy the deep green grass growing next to the hot springs and the hundreds of flamingoes, ibises and pelicans practicing their mating rituals.

Moucha and Maskali Islands
The Moucha and Maskali Islands are a source of everything that seaside Djibouti has to offer, from coral reefs to mangroves, huge marine animals and beautiful beaches. The eastern part of the archipelago was declared a National Park, while the south-western part is an Underwater Reserve.
