  • The two old MAN trucks

    We travelled in Chad and West-Africa with an old MAN truck. Because of the dangerous situation in West-Sudan, we couldn't cross Sudan from Chad to Ethiopia. So we had to take a flight from N'Djamena, the capital of Chad to Addis Abeba in Ethiopia and had to leave the trucks behind in N'Djamena.The blue one, owned by its Belgian driver Philippe,...

  • Riding a camel

    During our trip north of N'Djamena we saw a lot of camels. Near Douguia this man was very curious to see us. First he looked at us for a long time from behind the bushes, sitting on his camel. Then suddenly he approached our truck at a few meters and gave his show by spurring on his camel. Afterwards he disappeared behind the bushes again,...

  • Transport in eastern Chad

    Transport in Chad is not easy. There are no surfaced road at all outside N'Djamena. There are some not-so-frequent flights with a local carrier. To for instance Iriba or Baha? there are no comercial flights even though there are airstrips there. For the time being they are operated by World Food Programme and the UNHCR hired Air Service.

  • Travelling around in an old MAN truck.

    To travel around north of N'Djamena in the area of Douguia and Lake Chad, you need your own 4WD transport. I didn't see any regular public transport anyway, on the sandy tracks we drove. We made our tour in an old MAN truck.Like we were curious to see the villages, the people and their means of transportation, so the local people and kids were very...

Many...

  • N'Djamena, minibuses and taxis

    In N'djamena I mostly took a minibus from the roundabout near the camping. All minibuses drove to the Grande Marche. So this was rahter easy, because I liked to start my walks in the centre from the market.South of the market was this street where you can find the yellow taxis, but it was also the place from where the minibuses started their route...

  • Where is the donkey ??

    The donkeys are used for all kind of transport.So, we saw near Douguia this man and his dog with walking bundles of straw.At a closer look we saw the donkey under this load of large size. Lucky for the donkey these bundles of straw didn't look really heavy. Anyway he could walk with it.

  • Transport by donkey

    In the area north of N'Djamena and around Douguia we saw a lot of donkeys.People used the donkeys mostly for riding theirselves, but also for transportation of all kinds of goods.These two boys with their donkey we met near the shore of Lake Chad. One was ridning himself, but they also transported a big piece of wood on their donkey.
