Highlights about the trip to Chad
Chad is a great destination, recommended for any traveler interested in natural spaces that are still unspoiled and not overcrowded by mass tourism that is reaching further and more frequently. Chad is a huge country, with a purely Saharan north and a scrubland south, with herds of elephants and scarified tribes. Chad has great potential and there are more and more travelers, exploring new deserts, new tribes and ceremonies. The lack of comfortable accommodation may have hold some people back, but this is changing due to social and political peace in a long-troubled country. At Last Places we have made a determined bet on Chad for its beauty, authenticity and unlimited potential.
Ennedi Desert, World Heritage Site
The Ennedi desert is the most beautiful and spectacular of the great Sahara, with large rock formations and full of impressive rock paintings and engravings. Ennedi is a natural sandstone masterpiece spanning 50,000 km2 of sculpted landscape punctuated by cliffs, natural arches, mushroom-shaped rocks, and giant labyrinths. Nicknamed "Eden in the Sahara", the reserve is located within the Ennedi Massif, a mountainous refuge.
Nomadic desert tribes and the Fulani tribe
Chad is a nomadic country with more than 50% of the population moving each year from north to south in search of water and pasture for dromedaries, cows, goats and sheep. Tribes such as the Red Arabs and the Fulani stand out for their facial scarifications and complex hairstyles.
