A small country with big sights, Djibouti has become known for its interesting geology and show-stopping topography. Limestone chimneys, salt lakes, offshore coral reefs, multi-colored mountains, mangroves, and sandy deserts provide the backdrop or focal point of a number of adventures during vacations in Djibouti. Away from the capital, Djibouti remains largely untamed and rural, with plenty of appeal for those into eco-tourism. Traveling down the coast and into the interior during a tour of Djibouti, visitors meet nomadic tribes and share in their singular way of life.
