Which country is Djibouti in?
You probably haven’t heard of a country called Djibouti. The question “Where is Djibouti?”, is quite justified. It is a fairly small country and is located on the Horn of Africa. This is the name of the tip of the land, which actually looks like a horn and which protrudes into the Indian Ocean in the east of Africa. In addition to Djibouti, the countries of Ethiopia, Somalia, Eritrea are located on the Horn of Africa.
These are also the three neighboring countries of Djibouti. To the north is Eritrea, to the west and south is Ethiopia, to the southeast is Somalia. Djibouti is about the same size as the state of Hesse in Germany. Djibouti is bordered to the east by the sea, namely by the Gulf of Aden. This opens to the Indian Ocean, while in the north it goes to the Red Sea. Across from Djibouti is the Arab Yemen. The Gulf of Tadjoura extends far into Djibouti. The country encloses the Gulf a bit like a horseshoe.
The highest mountain of Djibouti with 2063 meters is called Mousa Alli and is located on the Ethiopian border. The rivers in Djibouti are called Essalou, Ouâhayyi and Sadaï. However, they do not carry water all year round, but dry out again and again.
