Le Lac Tchad est situé au sud du sahara. Il était le quatrième lac d’Afrique a l'époque. Sa superficie qui était de 25000 km2 est tombée aux environs de 5000 km de nos jours. Il est constitué des eaux du lac et des bras du lac. II est alimenté par deux sources principales qui sont le Logone et le Chari.
