NTT USES ITS CREW AND CONTACTS IN CHAD TO EXECUTE THIS TOUR AT BETTER RATES THAN ANY OTHER RESELLER OR TOUR COMPANY. WE ARE ACTUALLY IN THE SAHEL. 

*YES, WE ALSO RUN A TOUR TO ZAKOUMA PARK IN THE EAST OF CHAD, WITH APN AND OUR GROUND CREW. THIS CAN BE RUN AS AN EXTENSION TO THIS TOUR OR ITS OWN SAFARI. WE SUGGEST 1 WEEK IN ZAKOUMA AFTER THIS 10 DAY TOUR AS A RELAXING CAPSTONE, FLYING FROM THE CAPITAL AS THE ROADS ARE NOT ALWAYS RELIABLE EAST (900KM)

HOWEVER FOR CHADIAN CULTURE AND FOR A GOOD SCOPE OF THE COUNTRY, THIS TOUR IS THE BEST OF THE BEST.
