Travel with Children

  • Many important facilities for children, such as cots in hotels, safety seats in 4WDs, and highchairs in restaurants, are almost totally lacking.
  • Items such as nappies, baby food and mineral water are easily available in the well-stocked Western supermarkets (but are between two to three times their normal price) in Djibouti City.
  • For youngsters, snorkelling with whale sharks (between November and January) is a sure-fire hit. For kids, visiting the Decan, a small wildlife refuge, can be fun. Near Tadjourah, Plage des Sables Blancs is also a great place for families.
