What to do in Chad: the country with the disappearing lake!

Today, we are taking you to Chad, a country that holds a mystery that is literally changing the map of the African continent.

Chad, dear travelers, is a country of extraordinary cultural diversity and epic natural panoramas. With a history that dates back to prehistoric times, we have a place full of enigmas and charms.


During our visit, we highlighted five unmissable tourist attractions: Zakouma National Park, where African wildlife can be seen in all its splendor; the N'Djamena Cathedral, an architectural jewel; the impressive Arc de Triomphe of Mongo; the ancient and charming Vila Gaoui and, of course, the immense and enigmatic Lake Chad.

Here, the currency used is the CFA Franc and the official languages are French and Arabic. And for us Brazilians, it is necessary to obtain a visa to enter the country.

Unfortunately, we suffered at the hands of some corrupt military personnel, who were very harsh and rude to us.

But what is the socioeconomic and political situation in this country?

Chad faces enormous challenges, with high poverty rates, low education levels and political conflicts. However, the population appears resilient and fighting for better days.


And now, let's talk about the mystery that made Chad known worldwide: Lake Chad is disappearing! Yes, Africa's second largest water reserve is rapidly dwindling due to climate change and excessive water use. This is one of the biggest environmental issues of our time.
