Lake Chad, Baga Sola

#10 of 13 in Things to do in Chad
Observe the immense Lake Chad, which supplies water to 68 million people despite being relatively shallow. Ride an old-fashioned boat along the lake while keeping an eye out for crocodiles and taking in scenic panoramas of the surrounding forests. You can also get a sense of local life and culture, with many people living and working near the lake's shores. Interestingly, the lake's area--currently 26,000 sq km (10,000 sq mi)--and depth are slowly shrinking. Conservation efforts aim to prevent this, but it's worth seeing the lake before it's too late.
