Ten Places To Go To In Chad

Chad is one of the countries of the Saharan Africa. It is bordered by Libya to its south, Niger and Cameroon to its east, Central African Republic to its North, and Sudan to its west. Chad is also a country that boasts of some wonderful places to visit, and here are some of them.

1.) N'Djamena

The war has brought down the liveliness of this biggest city of Chad, and after the war, Chad is tying to regain back its reputation as one of the liveliest city in Africa. Here in N'Djamena, you can still see buildings riddled with bullet holes, but despite of this, there is still some cheerful atmosphere to it as you tour its historic quarters as well as the its marketplace. You can also visit its National Museum to see wonderful artifacts from the Sarh culture.

2.) Zakouma National Park

This is a national park where you can also see the Bahr Salamat and its branches as they run across the plains. During the war, this national park lost most of its wildlife because of poaching and the effects of civil war. But now, the government of Chad has reintroduced back the animals, and so the park is what it once was, full of wildlife.

3.) Lake Chad

This is a historic site since it was once the center for the salt trade industry in Africa. But now, it is rapidly shrinking, and there are fewer animals around the lake. But still, this is a good place to visit, and it is best to visit this lake at about August to December when it is at its fullest, and you can see a lone hippopotamus or a lone crocodile swim by.

4.) Sarh

This is Chad's second biggest city. Its main source of income is through its sugarcane and cotton plantations. What you can see and enjoy here is its national museum and the Center Artisanal where you can also buy some of your souvenirs to take home with you.

5.) Moundou

Recognized as the country's third biggest city, it is made more popular by the Gala Brewery. You can visit the brewery for a tour and get to taste some of the most delicious beer in Chad. But you have to prepare for about a day to reach this place.

6.) Abeche

If you want to see more desert charm, then Abeche is the place for you to go to. Here, its oriental charisma is palpable. You can stroll along its streets made from cobblestones and visit some of its mosques as well as the markets.

7.) Tibesti Mountains

This is a must-see place as it is home to the Toubou Tribe. This is also popular for its racing camels. What you can see here are majestic chasms and crags, perfect for any nature lover.

8.) Restaurants of N'Djamena

It is not worth it to travel to an exotic country and not taste its foods. Here in N'Djamena, there are many French as well as authentic African restaurants that you can visit. Do not forget to taste their rice covered in peanut sauce as it is one of their specialties.

9.) Bars and nightlife in N'Djamena

If you are tired of nature and desert, then hit some of the bars in N'Djamena. Although a war-stricken city, it does its best to entertain the visitors. Drink their best beer, Gala, in these bars as well as join in some open-air dancing.

10.) Novotel N'Djamena La Tchadienne's Casino

This is a very beautiful hotel located in N'Djamena. If you are still in need of some modern entertain, then go to its casino. Here, you can play poker and blackjack.
