Chad is one of the countries in the Sahel, a region in Africa. Like Niger, it is completely landlocked. The country, named after Lake Chad, is divided into three major belts: the desert zone in the North, a Sahelian belt in the center and the Sudanese savanna zone in the south. After entering Chad we immediately drive to the Libyan border to climb its highest mountain before heading back into Chad to climb Emi Koussi, Chad's highest mountain, rising 3,445 meters above sea level. The capital, N'Djamena, will be our last stop in Chad and our point of getting visas for CAR and Cameroon.
