Best time to visit Saharan Chad:

Dry Season (November to February): This period is considered the dry season, and it's the most favorable time for tourism. The weather is cooler and drier, making it ideal for outdoor activities such as desert adventures, cultural experiences, and wildlife viewing in national parks like Zakouma National Park.

Hot Season (March to May): As the dry season transitions into the hot season, temperatures begin to rise significantly. This time can be challenging due to extreme heat, especially in the northern desert regions.

While the rainfall varies across regions, it can make travel more difficult due to muddy roads and certain areas being less accessible.
