Where to stay
We were staying at the beautiful Residence Lagun Bleu and it was clean and comfortable. In Djibouti City, there are plenty of nice accommodation options to be found.
Are you planning a trip to Djibouti? Here you can get a room with a 10% discount!
If you are only planning to stay in the city and if you are willing to eat and sleep like a local, the cost of the trip will be quite inexpensive. However, if you are planning to visit a lake or any other remote area, the cost will be somewhat higher, but it’s sure worth it! You can take a taxi or a minibus to Lake Assal, depending on how flexible you are.
Best time to visit
The best time to visit Djibouti is from November until March when the temperatures are slightly cooler (around 25°C).
Deforestation, desertification, water scarcity and pollution, and wildlife conservation are among Djibouti’s most pressing environmental issues. Trees are being cut down at an increasing rate due to the extension of agricultural lands and the use of wood for fuel. The country’s limited water supply is threatened by increasing salinity. The shortage of arable land is causing famine throughout the country. Wildlife conservation programs include the prohibition of wildlife hunting and overfishing in the established underwater reserves in the Gulf of Tadjoura.
Romance and adventure
Djibouti offers many wonderful sights and fun activities. A trip to Lake Assal would surely thrill a romance-seeker and an adventurer alike.
Found lots of LOVE in Djibouti. 😉 ♥
