Things to See and Do in N’djamena
The Grande Mosquee is at the city center and the striking minarets setting can be seen from afar. The landmark is also a great point of interest to help you get around town.
The central market area has colonial architecture along the wide streets lined with minibuses, internet cafes, banks, embassies, airlines, supermarkets and patisseries. Located in the West side of N’Djamena, to the east of Grand Marche are mud brick houses of local residents, street stalls, African bars and small shops.
Another great option is to visit the Zakouma National Park in March or April and see herds of elephants, lions, giraffes, monkeys and wildebeests, including many varieties of birds and antelopes. They like to gather near the water for a bit. In Bol, you can see hundreds of birds and a hippo or two and floating islands between November thru February.
