The Afar people (sometimes also called "Danakil") are living in the Danakil Depression in the border-triangle between Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti. This is one of the most remote and most extreme regions of the world - it is the lowest point in Africa (- 155 metres/-550 ft below sea level) and one of the hottest places on Earth. Until today the majority of the Afar are still nomadic pastoralists and making their life with raising camels, goats and cattle in the desert.
