Zakouma National Park is located in eastern Chad and is one of the largest animal reserves in Central Africa. If you camp there for a safari, you will discover giraffes, lions, gnous, primates, various species of antelopes, huge herds of elephants, and dozens of bird species.
The Tibesti desert occupies a third of the country, in its northern part: it is a mountainous area with gorges and volcanic massifs, craters that make us think of lunar landscapes, and there are cave paintings and engravings from prehistoric times. The two highest peaks of the country, the Emi Koussi and the Toussidé (the latter being a still active volcano) culminate there at more than 3000 meters. In the same region are the Soboroum springs, whose hot and sulphurous waters have therapeutic properties.
The lakes also offer exciting discoveries for the traveller: Lake Léré and its manatees, a species that has almost disappeared, as well as its carps, but also its fishermen who continue to practice ancestral rites, including initiation warrior dances, always spectacular; Lake Chad, to the north-west of the capital, whose extent continues to diminish, which endangers the survival of millions of people who live on its fish-bearing waters and crops irrigated by its water, and where many animals can be found such as hippopotamus, otter or caiman; Fitri Lake in the centre of the country, populated by a large number of fish and birds, which led to its classification as a “biosphere reserve”.
