There is nothing much to do in N'Djamena and this street is the only place which looks different from others and active. If your in N'Djamena who have to take a look at this street.

This is where you should be, and in fact I slept in a hotel in this avenue, full of life, shops, restaurants and even ATM, very safe area to walk even at night.

Nobody comes to NDjamena for the sights, not much to say about them. A 5 minute walk down the street will provide all the impressions you need, suggest leave wallet, phone & watch in hotel safe while doing so.

In all honesty, N'Djamena is not a very beautiful city: it is flat and with no special attractions. The only places to see are the Av. Charles de Gaulle, the market and the river. Nothing more. The good thing is that, over the years all...More
