Xhafzotaj is a village and a former municipality in the Durrës County, western Albania. At the 2015 local government reform it became a subdivision of the municipality Shijak.[1] The population at the 2011 census was 12,381.[2]

The area around Xhafzotaj is very flat. The main road from Durres to Tirana crossed the municipality while today the road leads mostly along the highway that bypasses the town to the northwest. Once a highly agricultural area, now the region is an important center of industry and trade in the Tirana-Durres region.
