Enjoy hiking and exploring the ecosystem of the forest - dry tropical Afromontane mixed woodland in the Goda Massif mountain ranges in the North of Djibouti where, historically, the dominant forest tree was African pencil cedar Juniperus procera.

In terms of ecosystem of global and national significance, the forest was the most important key site as home of variety of rare, extremely arid-adapted species of fauna such as Critically Endangered species i.e. Djibouti Francolin, Leopard, small breeding population of the Endangered Egyptian Vulture, isolated small populations of green monkey and klipspringer and Endangered flora.
