Chad - Gerewol Festival

Style: PioneerGroundbreaking tours to unique destinations
Duration: 8 days
Type: GroupSmall group tours with a maximum of 12 travellers

After the annual rains, the nomadic Mbororo people gather for a unique celebration known as the Gerewol. This is a festival full of colour and has to be considered one of the most off the beaten track and fascinating cultural experiences in the whole of Africa. We will feel privileged to be able to travel to the remote region of Durbali to see the age old traditions of the Mbororo and join them as they celebrate the Gerewol Festival by feasting, singing, dancing and engaging in courtship. In particular, a real highlight is to witness the spectacular way in which the young Mbororo men decorate themselves with make-up and jewellery to impress a prospective partner. During our days at the festival we will immerse ourselves in the local traditions on what is sure to be a truly unique memorable African experience.
