Guelta d’Archei – The Most Famous Permanent Water Source in the Ennedi Region of Chad

 

The Guelta d’Archei is probably the most famous guelta in the Sahara. It is located in the Ennedi Plateau, in north-eastern Chad, south-east of the town of Fada. The Guelta d’Archei is inhabited by several kinds of animals, most notably the Nile crocodile. The Guelta d’Archei is a barren place, away from beaten paths: it requires a 4×4 and is at least 4 days’ travel from N’Djamena, the Chad capital. The place depicted in the picture can only be reached by a few hours trek from the nearest point a 4×4 can approach.
