Destination Information for Chad
Chad, located in the Sahel region of Africa, is a country with a troubled past, with civil war and political unrest making it a risky destination for the average tourist. If you’re considering making Chad your next destination, be prepared to experience Africa at its most extreme. Chad is beautiful, with desert oasis and stunning wildlife – yet at the same time it is inhospitable and unpredictable.
For those who brave the scorching temperatures and difficult transportation, Chad is a wonderland for wildlife enthusiasts. The waters of Lake Chad form one of the largest wetlands in Africa, attracting elephants, rhinos, giraffes, leopards and lions, as well as reptiles and spectacular birds. This is one of the few places in the world unchanged by modern concerns. Tribes people are proud of their heritage, and unlike the landscape, are welcoming to travellers. In the capital, N’Djamena, you’ll find comfortable accommodation, the Chad National Museum, and incredible sunset views.
If you’re looking for a destination that will take you out of your comfort zone and provide unforgettable experiences unlike any other, Chad certainly fits the bill!
