Djibouti Geography, Economics, and Culture

Located in the Horn of Africa in East Africa, Djibouti is bordered by Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea in the north, and the Red Sea. It serves as a gateway to the Suez Canal, one of the world’s busiest shipping routes. Its role in worldwide shipping is its biggest source of income and employment. It is also where many world powers establish military bases due to its strategic location near many political hotspots.

Djibouti is a multi-ethnic nation with a population of just under 1 million people. French and Arabic are the country’s two official languages the vast majority of its residents subscribe to Islam, which has been predominant in the region for more than a thousand years. The (Issa clan) and Afar make up the two largest ethnic groups
