N’Djamena is the economic and commercial capital of Chad, a land-locked central African country which was once the hotbed of conflicts and rebellion in the region. The city is home to Lake Chad, a major freshwater lake in the world, which has now began to shrink courtesy of climate change and increased pressure on it. N’Djamena lies on the border of Cameroon and on the confluence of the Chari and Logone rivers. Chari River offers stunning sunset views. The city has a very pleasant and friendly population which compensates for the city’s reputation as one of Africa’s poorest.
The inhabitants are predominantly muslims, so you’re bound to see lots of mosques within the city. In 2009, N’Djamena city was recognized as the Capital of Islamic Centre. However, there are other important attractions in the city such as the presidential palace, cathedral, national park, national museum and the unforgettable Grand Marché (central market) – an interesting place to go shopping and also experience the culture and diversity of Chad.
