Republic of Djibouti
Republic of Djibouti is the smallest country on the Horn of Africa. It is bordered by Eritrea in the north, Ethiopia in the west and south, and Somalia in the southeast. The rest of the country consists of the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden. The Arabian Peninsula and Yemen are only 20 kilometers off the coast. Djibouti is 23 000 km ² and has around 800 000 inhabitants.

The northern part of the country is mountainous, while the central and southern part is dominated by volcanic plateaus. Djibouti is one of the hottest countries. Most of the scarce precipitation falls in the mountains in the north, from late summer to the end of March. The dominant vegetation is desert scrub and forest along the coast and a few forested areas in the mountains. The wildlife is well adapted to the extreme conditions, and there are antelope, lynx, jackals and gazelles.
