When you are travelling to multiple countries or bringing more than just your Kindle Fire then the best international travel charger for Djibouti to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. Djiboutians use two different standards of wall outlets (types E and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C.
