Lakes and Wastelands in Djibouti


The country of Djibouti is situated on the eastern part of the African continent. The notable lakes and wastelands in Djibouti include Lake Asal and Lake Abbe and the dangerous and barren Kalahari Desert.

Travelers to the small African country make it a point to visit the lakes and wastelands in Djibouti. The notable Djibouti lakes include the water bodies of Asal and Abbe. Lake Abbe is a salt lake situated in close proximity to the Djibouti border with the neighboring country Ethiopia. Lake Asal is a crater containing water. The lake is located in the central part of the country. The unique characteristics of the lake include its extreme salt content-the salinity of the water body is a staggering 34.8%. This fact makes Lake Asal more saline than the Dead Sea.
