    This is a wonder of the world. The salty, crystalized volcanic lake. Very beautiful from kilometers away. The temperatures are really hot though and you need to carry spare shoes to access the lake at close range (crocs preferably) . This is a must go in Djibouti, the lowest part of Africa

    Day Forest National Park was actually a disappointment to me as I had expected more of a forest. A lot of the trees are destroyed and there is not much to see. The mountains are, however, spectacular. The camp site consists of basic huts which are well cared for. A shared toilet block is very clean, but best of all the food is great. I did a day’s hike to Banquale with a local guide.

    Yes, you can have a day off and enjoy this cool beach. It is at some distance from Djibouti and road leading to it is very difficult, you need to compulsory have a 4X4 with you to reach over there.

    The mosque is beautiful and from the outside it’s worth a quick peak at. If you are looking for a mosque then this will work for you. It is a ice historical building situated in a central part of town.

    I took my open water diver license (PADI) from them and I had a wonderful time. The instructors were excellent and professional and their knowledge on the local dive spots are unparalleled. Looking forward to have many more dives with them.

    I was in Djibouti for a few days and had some last minute free time and poked around for a tour.

    I got linked up with Ken who has been running these tours for nearly 10 years and has an evident love for Djibouti.

    Unfortunately, no pictures of the turtles (they are quick little buggers)- but we had over 40 sightings, and perfect, smooth water- even for a very novice level kayaker that I am it was a nice balance of active and tourist.

    We shuffled for sting rays, saw a beach full of hermit crabs. Awesome awesome morning- makes me wish I had reached out sooner to have been able to experience other tours--- maybe next trip.

    Mohamed is a real professional. He arranged everything for me from start to finish and took a genuine interest in making sure I had a great time. Because of its size and remote location, this country is not visited by many tourists, which made the experience that much better. If you're planning a trip to Djibouti, this company will help you have a remarkable experience.

    - Excellent support and advices from Aden Fishing to prepare this fishing travel. They will give you all informations needed, to feel confortable one time there.

    - Djibouti is just an amazing spot to fish, u can find so many speccies (GT, KingFish, Wahoo, YFT, Snappers, Groupers, SailFish, SwordFish, etc etc) and the decor is just incredible, u feel like to be on the moon with a crystal sea around.

    - People are friendly, even though I did not really care about their history to be honest.

    Thanks Aden Fishing for this adventure and this incredible moments !

    Was pleased to find a nice perfume shop in Djibouti. The perfumes are genuine unlike in many shops where you find imitations. Prices are competitive. ..and an extra 5$ wouldn't hurt...keeping in mind the staff especially the absolutely welcoming and pleasant manager...
