This is the Sahara’s final frontier. Travel to the remote Tibesti Mountains in the north of Chad, to explore dramatic peaks, including the Sahara’s highest mountain, and meet the Tubu people living here.
Out of bounds for a long time, with a little care and a lot of planning it’s now possible to visit this stunning region. Expect a tough journey as we will be crossing vast empty spaces on our journey from the capital to the north. This is a true expedition.
We head into breath-taking landscapes of the Tibesti, home to volcanic peaks and some of the most isolated settlements on earth. We meet the Tubu people, a fiercely independent group and true adepts at living in such harsh conditions – exploring their settlements we see how they have managed to carve a life for themselves here. This tour of Chad also delves into prehistory, seeing ancient rock carvings and paintings among the stones. Crossing rocky plateaux, tackling vast fields of sand dunes and following the courses of long dried up riverbeds, the landscape here is diverse and constantly changing.
