Tadjourah Tour

Tadjourah, Djibouti

Tadjourah is a quiet, multi-faceted port city. It is steeped in history: Arabic texts speak of it as early as the 12th century; here transited the caravans of arms to Ethiopia, as well as the slaves who were destined for the Arabian Peninsula or the island of Reunion.

Arthur Rimbaud lived in Tadjourah; the place of his house is indicated, not far from the gas station.

In more recent times the academician and French politician JF Deniau had built a house in the superb bay of Ras Ali a few kms north of Tadjourah. His heirs still come here to spend their holidays.

If you arrive by ferry, you will see Tadjourah the white city from afar. Once you arrive, you will have difficulty counting its 7 mosques, which have now become 8.

But the journey by road is also very interesting and offers superb panoramas. The ideal is to go by road and return by ferry. Our agency can organize this for you.

There is no shortage of quality accommodation, whether hotels or camps, in Tadjourah.
