Join the Wodaabe people for a week of traditional festivities and immerse yourself in a culture that is one of the most traditional in all of Africa. Few tourists venture this far into Chad and we can expect to have a very intimate experience. Africa is known for its festivals, but few – if any – can rival the Gerewol.
This trip showcases the very best of Chad. Experience the colourful celebrations of the Wodaabe's Gerewol Festival, then head into the Sahara and explore the Ennedi Mountains, home to ancient rock art, incredible landscapes and nomadic tribes. Join us to experience travel at its most exciting – raw, untamed, surprising and exhilarating.
This has to be one of our favourite trips. It’s a spectacular journey through remote and breathtaking lands that sums up our ethos, and taking you to places few western travellers have ever been. Explore the stunning Ennedi Mountains, look for ancient rock art, meet the Tubu people and see breathtaking desert lakes.
The ultimate trip through an untamed land, travelling to what can rightly be called the holy grail of Saharan travel, Chad’s mighty Tibesti Mountains. Visit Tubu villages and venture to the Sahara’s highest mountain, Emi Koussi. Explore beautiful gorges and marvel at bizarre rock formations, going to a land that few visitors have ever seen.
Discover an incredible wildlife paradise in the south of Chad. Zakouma National Park is home to elephants, lions, leopards and more. Game viewing here gives East Africa stiff competition, but with a fraction of the visitors, you are likely to have sightings all to yourself. Enjoy a true wilderness experience and true off the beaten track travel.
