Take the chance to visit one of Africa's most mysterious countries. Virtually closed off to tourism for decades after a succession of civil wars and political turmoil, Chad now has a few stable regions that are beginning to become accesible for tourists.
Our Chad tour take in the capital city of N'Djamena and Zakouma National Park; one of Africa's last true remaining wildernesses, hosting lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo and much more.
