Travel Warning

WARNING: Chad is currently experiencing political turmoil and the UK and U.S. governments advise against all but essential travel to Chad. Anywhere outside the capital, N'Djamena, is highly dangerous, especially in the north—where a special travel permit is necessary.

Chad (French: Tchad) is a country in the Sahel, south of Libya, east of Niger and Cameroon, north of the Central African Republic, and west of Sudan. It shares a short border with Nigeria.
