Afar is a language of Ethiopia. Roughly 1.4% of the population there speak it as a first language.

Afar is spoken by roughly 1.5 million largely nomadic people in the Horn of Africa (Northeast Africa); in Ethiopia (in the regions of Tigray, Welo, and Western Hararghe), Eritrea and Djibouti. There is also evidence of a very small number of speakers in the United Kingdom.

Territory size shows the proportion of all people who speak Afar as a first language that live in that territory.
