Nice @Botswanadreams, very nice indeed.  Thanks for a great report.

 

I will get round to my TR soon but I'm currently typing "one-finger, left handed" as I've just had shoulder replacement surgery on my right and it's so sloooow!!

Excellent photos and the video of the the Quelea. It's such an extraordinary sight, isn't it, they just go on and on and on! 

 

@AfricIan hope you're recovering and looking forward to your TR!

Many, many thanks for all your kind comments @Alexander33 @kilopascal @gatoratlarge @CaroleE @AfricIan and @Galago. It gives me a bit more motivation to get the next part ready soon. I hope the struggle with Google translate isn't too heavy. If so the pics will tell sometimes the story of our trip better than my writing.

Fabulous places and photos @Botswanadreams! It is very hard to say, which area is more beautiful (Zakouma or Ennedi), indeed...  I went through the more detailed report on your website, too. Great trip and great job with the TR-s!

Thanks @FlyTraveler. Which area is more beautiful Zakouma or Ennedi I'm not able to answer this question. As I said in the other topic about security in Chad it depends really on the interest of travelers what they like to see. The combination of both did it for us.

 

 

It's one of the lakes at Ounianga Kebir - for me it looks like it could be on our earth.

@Atravelynn Thanks very much for following us through Chad. @Ritsgaai your post offers me too many flowers. Thank you so much. Yes Chad has very beautiful places. The only little problem is that they all are fare away from N'Djamena.

Hi Christina @Botswanadreams

i read your entire report ( 8 parts) on your website. Just superb especially the sections when you were deep in the desert - I have read several wonderful reports on Zakouma and a couple on Ennedi but this was the very time I saw pictures of the lakes and that deeper desert area area. Spectacular trip- 2 weeks of driving in the heat and dust- you are really troopers but it was well worth it. Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures and writing. Also Google translate has really improved and appeared to me was nearly perfect in English.

Many thanks for your interest in our 2019 trip to Chad @Nik63, @gatoratlarge and @AKR1. Zakouma, Ennedi and the lakes of Ounianga was a dream combination for us. We had a very good team from EYTE' VOYAGES & AVENTURES SAHARIENNES for our private two weeks tour to the Sahara, where we lacked nothing. Good to hear that Google translate works well.
