Other destinationsEdit


The Saharan region covers roughly the northern third of Chad, including Borkou-Ennedi-Tibesti Prefecture along with the northern parts of Kanem, Batha, and Biltine prefectures. Much of this area receives only traces of rain during the entire year. Scattered small oases and occasional wells provide water for a few date palms or small plots of millet and garden crops. In much of the north, the average daily maximum temperature is about 32 °C during January, the coolest month of the year, and a vicious 45 °C during May, the hottest month.

Get inEdit

The only airport of significance within the region is Faya-Largeau Airport (FYT IATA) in Faya. There are regular services from the capital N'Djamena.
