Al Qatrun Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Mohammed Tager of the Wadi Alhikma Travel & Tourism Agency (Tel/Fax: 0735-2901) runs a camping ground in the old Italian Fort which is very nice. Mohammed organisea guides for Chad ($600) or Niger ($400). It is possible to do it yourself however. Go to Tajarhi, 80km south of Gatrun to wait there for the convoys. One warning: conoys are not very regular. Most of the traffic consists of Niger-bound smugglers passing through at night.
