Chad Things to Do

  • N'Djamena at the Chari River

    N'Djamena stretches out for several kilometers along the north bank of the Chari River. The road along the river, Avenue Felix Eboue/ Avenue Mobutu, don't give really good views at the river because of the many buildings between this road and the river.The place to be in N'Djamena, from where you have a splendid view at the Chari River, is the...

  • N'Djamena, Grande Mosquee

    One of the most striking buildings in the citycentre is the Grande Mosquee. From far you can see the high minarets, so this mosque is an important landmark to find your way in town.Chad has about 7,5 million inhabitants. In the north live people of Arab descent, mostly Muslims. In the south of the country live the black Africans, mostly Christians...

  • N'Djamena, lively citycentre

    During the 7 days I spent in N'Djamena, I walked a lot in the citycentre. It was not because of there were many ''must see activities'' in town, the citycentre itself was for me the ''must see activity''.I enjoyed the pleasant relaxed atmosphere of this subsaharian sahel city and the many daily activities in the streets. In every street or around...

  • N'Djamena, hundreds of streetstalls and ...

    In the centre of N'Djamena you will find hundreds of streetstalls and small shops, not only in the Grand Marche, but also in the whole area around. In these stalls and shops you can buy almost everything. Anyway you find stalls with vegetables, fruits, nuts, dates, snacks, drinks, soap, clothes, shoes and kitchen utensiles. I could walk around in...

  • N'Djamena, Grand Marche, centre of the...

    The most central point of N'Djamena, the capital of Chad, is the Grand Marche. Most minibuses have their terminal station at or near the Grand Marche.In reality N'Djamena is divided in two cities, each with its own character and atmosphere. At the west side of the Grand Marche is the commercial area with wide green streets and colonial...

  • Hadjer el Hamis, le Rocher aux Elephants

    From Douguia you can visit the Hadjer el Hamis, the Elephant Rock. The rock is of vulcanic origin and has the typical reliefs of the Sahel zone. You need a 4WD to reach the rocks because of the soft sandy tracks. From far you can allready see the ''sugar bread'' rocks rising up in the plain. When you come closer to the rocks, you recognise the...

  • Les Rochers

    Behind the Elephant Rock at the eastside, you can find another rock. Also at this side you can walk up to the feet of the rocks. From here you will have a breathtaking view at the surrounding plain. If the air is not too dusty, you can see very far. At this side of the rocks you can also find a enormous cave. It can be extremely hot, so it is not...

  • Douguia , boattrip on the Chari River

    In Douguia in the cite touristique we hired a boat and made a boattrip on the Chari River. We did see a lot of birds, but not the expected hippos. But most of all we enjoyed to look at the small mud-brick villages along the river. We saw the local people with their daily activities, like fishing, washing, walking or just sitting at the riverbank....

  • Douguia, pleasant place at the Chari...

    Douguia is one of the tourist centres of Chad. It's a nice shady place at the Chari River north of N'Djamena. There is a small hotel and restaurant with a swimmingpool. You can make boattrips on the river and discover from here the area around Lake Chad by 4WD. You can camp for free at the riverbank, if you take your diner in the restaurant.Douguia...

  • N'Djamena, cathedral and Musee National

    Between the Avenue Charles de Gaulle and Avenue Felix Eboue, both important east-west arteries, you can find the cathedral of N'Djamena. The Place de la Liberation and the Presidential Palace are just east of it.Opposite the cathedral you can find the National Museum in a lovely colonial building. A very enthusiastic guide opened all the rooms for...

  • N'Djamena, lively Grand Marche

    The Grand Marche in N'Djamena is the lively centre of the city. Here all the minibuses have their terminal. The 7 days I spent in N'Djamena, I came from the campsite by minibus and started my walk in town at this market. In and outside the market, you find many streetstalls and small shops. In some shops you can also change money.There are some...

  • Abeché

    The city of Aeche, in the east of Chad, next to the border to Sudan was once the capital of the Ouaddai kingdom.

  • N'Djamena

    It is pleasant to wander around N'Djamenas streets. The people there are friendly, but not as outgoing as probably in other african countries. Have a look at the colorful dresses of the women in the city!
