Owner description: Populated by embassies and colonial houses, the Avenue Charles de Gaulle is evidence of lasting European influence in Africa.

That's the main road of N'Djamena. It is often very dusty, especially during the dry season.

Some nice spots with trees and green areas, many little shops where you can buy a soda or some biscuits, and lots of secondary roads linked to.

If you go to N'Djamena, you will definitely pass by it!

N'Djamena, was an interesting city to visit. I stayed there for approx one week and stayed at the Novotel.

I was comfortable there although the AC was not the best.

I found entry into Chad very easy, and exit very difficult, thanks in part to Air France and in part to the uniformed persons at the airport on exit. Not a good experience and not one that I will be repeating.

As for the city itself, it had its share of worthwhile restaurants, although It is not a place to go wandering around by oneself.

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 the important roads have been asphalted.

I've only been a few other places in the world that hits all my senses at the same time. The sights, the sounds, the smells, walking through the mass of humanity. I Loved It!!
