Tourism in Chad is not a major industry but the country still attracts a number of tourists each year. Visitors in Chad are usually excited by the hunting capabilities in the country. Zakouma National Park is also a great destination for tourists. The park is the oldest national park in the country and it houses lions, elephants and a host of other animals.
The country is named after the ‘Lake Chad’ which is the largest wetland in Chad and the second largest in Africa. French and Arabic are the most popular languages in the country. The country has over 200 ethnic groups. Crude oil became the country’s primary source of exporting income in 2003, usurping the cotton industry.
Homosexuality is seriously frowned at in Chad. People caught in this act will serve prison sentence ranging from 3 months to 2 years and incur a fine of between 50,000 and 500,000 CFA. Foreigners should ensure they are in possession of a valid means of identification at all times.
