Chad Country Information

Map of Chad

After independence, Chad has had nothing but trouble; as Libyan backed Muslim rebels operated in the north, and drought took its toll on the soil.

Lake Chad is also shrinking in size, and the hippos might one day loose their home. In the last ice age the lake was more than ten times its present size.

Local weather forecasts for destinations around Africa.


The capital of Chad is situated on the Chari River, opposite Nigeria.

Before 1973 N'Djamena still had the original French name of Fort-Lamy; even though Chad gained full independence from France on August 11th, 1960.

N'Djamena's Great Mosque was built in the late 1970s and is a dominant feature of the city. N'Djamena also has a cathedral built by the French, and some ancient Sao ruins.

Getting Around Chad

Chad by Air


Air Tchad (HK) is the national airline and operates flights to Abeche and Sarh, while Air Afrique (RK) and Air France both operate flights from Paris to N'Djamena.

Chad by Road

There's no railway in Chad and travel by road is made almost impossible in the rainy season.

The best time to travel by road is between November and May.

Chad Travel

The Tibesti volcanic complex is located half way between Lake Chad and the Gulf of Syrte - in Southern Libya and Northern Chad.

This region makes up a 350 mile triangle in length.

With one of the most painful histories in Africa, Chad is a nation with its foundations built on the precipice of conflict.

With Boko Haram terror activities in the south and signs of conflict spilling over from Libya in the north, the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office advise against travel to Chad.
