Djibouti Sea and Lakes Route

From 1,211 $ or 993 € (course May 2021) $ per person, for 4 people

Level: Discovery

Difficulty:

This circuit named "Sea and lakes" privileges the aquatic environment. This is why it radiates from the city of Djibouti to the most beautiful beaches and lakes of the country.

The colours of the Assal lake and its salt floe surrounded by lava are always a wonder (the 3 circles described by the writer-adventurer J Kessel).

You will spend a night at Lake Abe and enjoy the legendary sunset and sunrise. The lunar landscape of the place explains why it was used as a set for the first version of the movie "Planet of the Apes" ....

You will not get tired of observing the wonderful fauna and flora of the seabed in Ras Ali, Korambado, among others, and you may have the chance to approach the whale shark in season. Don't forget your fins, mask and snorkel! 

A pirogue ride will take you into the Godoria mangrove.

In addition to Djibouti, you will visit the cities of Obock and Tadjourah, all three on the seaside...
