August 11 - Independence Day in Chad

   Posted on August 11, 2022     

This is an update of my post published on August 11, 2011:

Chad is a landlocked country in Central Africa. It is one of the poorest countries in the world, and corruption and civil war have plagued it for decades. Because of all the political unrest and a series of undemocratic governments, Chad is extremely dangerous for travelers—and with the tourism industry now dwindling, Chad has become even poorer. Poverty and violence truly are vicious cycles.

Perhaps, though, we can be virtual tourists, and we can explore some of the sights of Chad in safety. Check out the amazing photos by David Santiago Garcia of Zakouma National Park and other sights in Chad. Here is a video of some of the beautiful people and landscapes of Chad.

And check out all the natural arches that can be seen in the Ennedi Desert! Here is a short video of tourists rock climbing in the nation - despite all the travel advisories.
