N'Djamena, capital city of Chad

market at N'Djamena

N'Djamena is a city of contrasts. The capital of Chad is quickly growing, and estimates project the population to double to over two million in the next ten years. Even with that rapid growth, the city feels more like a village due to its ubiquitous mud huts and economy based largely on agriculture. It is the only large city in Chad, and there are few traditional tourist sights, but the bars are lively at night, the markets are great for bargains and the people are friendly.


The city is home to many mosques and also boasts the presidential palace and a cathedral. The views across the river are spectacular, and the Chad National Museum is worth a visit for its small but interesting collection of artifacts.
