Djibouti is in the Horn peninsula, bordered by Eritrea to the north, Ethiopia to the west and south, and Somaliland to the southeast. The Gulf of Aden lies to the east. The country can be divided into three regions; the coastal plain and volcanic plateaus in the central and southern parts of the country and the mountain ranges in the north. Much of the country is wasteland with virtually no arable land.

WARNING: A long-running border dispute between Djibouti and Eritrea makes the border region between the two countries extremely unsafe. Also exercise caution in the remainder of the country, because of high levels of crime and threats of terrorism.
