Obock Tour

Obock, Djibouti

Obock evokes the adventures of Henry de Monfreid, writer-adventurer who lived here with his family. His house is still there, not far from the port.

The other vestiges of this past are:

- the house of Governor Léonce Lagarde, which is being restored and which has a superb view of the coast,

- the marine cemetery where a hundred French sailors were buried who were struck down by a contagious disease at the end of of the 19th century. The whiteness of the well-aligned tombs will mark you.

The ferry connects Obock to Djibouti twice a week.

Obock with its seaside campsites can be a stopover to the Godoria mangroves further north.
