Chad Gerewol Tribal Festival - Festival of the Mbororo Nomads @ Dourbali, Deep Desert
(NOTE: This is not the Niger Cure Salee Festival, often confused for this event.)
THIS IS A PRIVATE TOUR - NO MINIMUM NEEDED TO BOOK, AND THIS IS YOUR GROUP AND TRIP!!The Gerewol Festival is a spectacular display of traditions and culture that have been around for hundreds of years, and have remarkably remained very authentic. In the blistering desert heat, the focus of the festival is around these young men as they compete for a wife who ultimately choose them based on a number of factors.
This festival is sure to be one of the most unique experiences that Africa has to offer, and one of the least known as well. The tour is packed with color, culture, food, and once in a lifetime experiences, you will not find anywhere else.
Thanks to attractiveness being a large part of the courtship equation, the colorful costumes and original make up the men have worked tirelessly on is of a grand scale. Typically made up of mud and clay, it is said that in order to prepare their make up and to be unique, they sometimes walk for days finding a new ingredient to include as part of their attire.
You'll have the opportunity to watch these men dance and sing songs for hours on end in order to prove their stamina to their prospective wives.
Day 1: Upon arrival at N'Djamena airport, you'll be met and transferred to your hotel in the city. Depending on the time you arrive you can opt to rest for the remainder of the day or head out and explore this great city.
Day 2: After breakfast this morning, your guide will pick you up from the hotel for a city tour of N'Djamena. Later this afternoon, relax at the hotel. Meals are not included today.
Day 3: The next four days focus 100% around the festival. Making the decision to experience this festival is already impressive as it is an opportunity of a lifetime that very few westerners will ever have a chance to see.
