Travel outside N’Djamena
New Zealanders who decide to travel outside N’Djamena should ensure they put in place appropriate personal security protection measures. We recommend travelling in convoy, with a local guide and only during daylight hours. You should prepare well in advance and make sure you have a satellite phone as telecommunications outside D’jamena can be unreliable. Such measures may mitigate some risks but will not eliminate them entirely.
