CHAD

Secrets of BORKOU

With the Spazi d’Avventura guides, we will discover this little-known region, which was important in the past as a connection zone between sub-Saharan Africa and Cyrenaica for the slave trade, and has also been a transit zone for us towards the Tibesti, ever since we carried out our first ever exploration of it in 1992.

    Secrets of BORKOU

    Borkou was also the name of a large lake that was fed by the waters of the even larger Lake Chad via the Bahr el Ghazal river. These formed the lake system of Mega Paleo Chad. Evidence can be found in paintings depicting boats, oars and fishing trips, and the remains of bone hooks and harpoons preserved in the lake sediments.
