Chad is not just a destination for desert lovers. It is an adventure and a discovery that enchants anyone for the incredible natural miracle that is manifested here in all its essence. In fact, who could ever imagine that the heart of the Sahara hides a real “eden”?
In Chad, in the northeastern part of the desert, stands one of the most amazing and spectacular morphologically impressive massifs in the world. A sandstone fortress in which, among cliffs, gorges, ravines, high peaks and surreal rock conformations stratified and eroded by time, real terrestrial paradises are hidden. Breathtaking natural explosions: lakes nestled between rock faces and walls of golden dunes, lush palm groves and secret springs where the last desert crocodiles live. All around, the Sahara, whose advance has failed to erase the miracles that nature has been able to create. Arriving at the Archei Guelta and Lake Ounianga Kebir, one realizes that heaven on earth exists… and it is in Chad!
