January 12, 2018 Velvet Champine

N’Djamena (/əndʒɑːˈmeɪnɑː/; French: N'Djaména; Arabic: انجمينا‎ Injamīnā) is the capital and largest city of Chad. A port on the Chari River, near the confluence with the Logone River, it directly faces the Cameroonian town of Kousséri, to which the city is connected by a bridge. It is also a special statute region, divided into 10 arrondissements. It is a regional market for livestock, salt, dates, and grains. Meat, fish and cotton processing are the chief industries, and the city continues to serve as the center of economic activity in Chad.

Musee National N'Djamena (National Museum)

Though many of its artifacts have been lost over the years, the Musée National N'Djamena still makes for an interesting visit.

Reviewed By William S - Tempe, Arizona

The museum is rather isolated from busy parts of town. It's not extraordinary, but holds a lot of archeological, historical, and cultural. The docents obviously took a great deal of pride in the presentations. Now all of them are not equally interesting, and some of the descriptions may be a bit exaggerated, but where else can you view petrified crocodile poop?

Cinema le Normandie

Reviewed By Zach G

Great cinema. I was very surprised at the quality and couldn't believe that I hadn't visited before. Most films will be showed in French but usually once a week there will be a "version original" in the original language. It has AC, there is a bathroom, but there aren't snacks. There is a nice restaurant just around the corner so it's nice to eat then go watch or vise versa.

L'Olympia

Reviewed By P_Rabouin - Le Plessis-Robinson, France

l'Olympia est constitué de deux salles un bar pub pour les soirées tchadiennes mais aussi un Véritable grand restaurant, accessible midi et soir. Le midi vous avez accès à la carte haut de gamme ou au menu avec un prix accessible. Et globalement question soit la formule choisie vous ne serez pas déçues. L'olympiade mériterait d'être également dans la partie restaurant de trip., je n'ai pas testé la partie pub du soir. Je le recommande vivement sachant qu'à djamena il n'y a pas tant que ça de bon restaurants.

Avenue Charles de Gaulle

Populated by embassies and colonial houses, the Avenue Charles de Gaulle is evidence of lasting European influence in Africa.

Reviewed By Francesca A

That's the main road of N'Djamena. It is often very dusty, especially during the dry season.
Some nice spots with trees and green areas, many little shops where you can buy a soda or some biscuits, and lots of secondary roads linked to.
If you go to N'Djamena, you will definitely pass by it!

N'Djamena Cathedral

Reviewed By ironmanjt2 - Arlington, Virginia

it appears to be closed, falling into major disrepair. There's a large fence around it, and you can't approach the structure. From the road, it looks like it's completely gutted
