Chad, officially the Republic of Chad, is a landlocked country in Central Africa. It is bordered by Libya to the north, Sudan to the east, the Central African Republic to the south, Cameroon, and Nigeria to the southwest and Niger to the west. A country that to me is so hidden but plays an important role in the making of the great African Continent.
