Lake Chad is a gradually-depleting water body that was once one of the world’s largest lakes. Largely as a result of climate change, the size of the lake has shrunk drastically over time. Nevertheless, the lake remains a useful resource for irrigation and a popular spot for fishing and boat sport.

The expansive Zakouma National Park lies southeast of N’Djamena, about 800 kilometres (500 miles). The 305,000-hectare park is home to massive herds of giraffes, lions, wildebeests, elephants, antelopes, lions and wildebeests, among others. March and April are the best months to visit.

The Tibesti Mountains are a mountain range in the central Sahara, primarily located in the extreme north of Chad, with a small extension into southern Libya. The highest peak in the range, Emi Koussi, lies to the south at a height of 3,445 metres (11,302 ft) and is the highest point in both Chad and the Sahara.

Lakes of Ounianga are a series of lakes in the Sahara Desert, in North-Eastern Chad, occupying a basin in the mountains of West Tibesti and Ennedi East. It was added as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2012. There is a total of 18 lakes.
