Flights to Tadjourah
image of Tadjourah Tadjourah is a small coastal city in Djibouti, surrounded by stark and rugged beauty. You won't find a long list of sights and attractions here, just the landscape and the people. It is known as the "white city" because almost all of the buildings are painted with white-wash.

The closest major airport is the Djibouti-Ambouli International Airport (airport code: JIB), which is just 30km away for convenient flights to Tadjourah. Though it is the main airport for Djibouti, there are limited flights from Johannesburg. South African Airways and Ethiopian Airlines both have one-stop flights to Tadjourah that connect once in Addis Ababa. Your other option is with Kenya Airways for a route through Nairobi. Flights to Tadjourah can take between 10 and 20 hours.

The Tourist Attractions of Tadjourah:
Most people in Tadjourah will speak either French or Arabic, and the city is primarily Muslim. The city has at least seven mosques, many of which have tall minaret towers and offer good photo opportunities though you will not likely be permitted indoors unless you are Muslim.

Day Forest National Park

The Day Forest National Park protects a rare piece of forest in a region of mostly arid desert. The Goda Mountains rise up through the park and it is quite a sight against the more barren landscape around. There are an abundance of birds in the park but not that many large animals. Even so, it is a breath of fresh air to explore the forest and enjoy the green.

Lake Assal

The salt pans around Lake Assal make this a worthwhile trip from Tadjourah, just past the Day Forest National Park. This lake is one of the lowest points in the world, as well as one of the most saline. Animals and plants are both scarce here for obvious reasons but the impressive views are the main draw.

Diving and Snorkelling

There are many vibrant coral reefs in the Gulf of Tadjourah and this has become a very popular place for scuba diving or snorkelling. There are large populations of fish and the regular migrations of whale sharks often draw divers from around the world. Several dive shops in the area will help you rent equipment if you want to head out under the waves.

City of Djibouti

Though you will have to travel around the Gulf of Tadjourah, there are good roads all the way to Djibouti. Their central marketplace is a must-visit to see the best activity of the city. They sell everything and it is open daily. Not far from the city is Lac Abbe, with natural limestone towers and mineral hot springs. The city also holds many international restaurants and shops, so you can easily spend a day or two there.
When Should You Visit?:

Like most of Djibouti, Tadjourah is hot and dry for the entire year. You can choose a month that is less hot than others as there is some variation from season to season. The highest heat will be from June until August. These months will reach 36C (97F) in the daytime. So you may want to do your travelling there in the winter months instead. From December until February it will be closer to 26C (79F). Evenings will drop somewhat as well.
