Chad - the Ennedi
I'm looking for some up to date advice on security in Chad. I'm travelling there next month with an Italian operator, and heading up to the Ennedi region and from there to the Ounianga lakes. Am wondering whether this part of the world is subject to the same problems in Niger - ie. nasty fundamentalist groups with a penchant for kidnapping westerners. Has anyone been there recently (am thinking not too many as it's been summer, but could be wrong) that could give me a good picture of the current situation?
All research so far suggests that it shouldn't be a problem and AQIM and associates aren't active in this region, and I'm pretty confident there's not much to worry about, but it would be good to hear from someone with any recent details or thoughts.
