N'djamena - Post Report Question and Answers

Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

If you are comfortable with reading, watching videos that you bring, working in your yard, or other stay-at-home activities, you can have an enjoyable tour. If you want the social activities and night-life that you would associate with a major U.S. city - you'll be miserable here. - Apr 2014

This is a hardship post. Singles have a hard time as the expat community is small. Right now most NGO's, International Organizations, and businesses have removed their non-essential staff.

Most activities are not worth doing twice. - Nov 2006
