Horn of Africa

The easternmost region of the African continent, the Horn of Africa is a beautiful part of the continent, very diverse, and typically composed of 4 countries: Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia, and Ethiopia.

I also added Sudan to the list because people who travel around the Horn also tend to pay a visit to Sudan.

ERITREA

The North Korea of Africa, one of the most hermetic, yet fascinating, countries in the world

ETHIOPIA

One of the most visited countries in Africa, but a huge country with many barely visited wonders

SOMALIA

Actual off the beaten track Africa and home to the unrecognized Republic of Somaliland

DJIBOUTI

A very strange tiny country filled with inhospitable landscapes (COMING SOON)

SUDAN

Nubian pyramids and the most hospitable people on Earth.

The most fascinating thing about the Horn of Africa, however, is that all countries are extremely different, both culturally and geographically.

From devoted Christian Orthodox to hospitable Muslims; from thick jungle to the hottest deserts on Earth; and from the most ancient Christian monasteries to tribal villages inhabited by people with animistic beliefs.
