Tibesti Region

Tibesti Region is a region of Chad. It was created in 2008 when the former Borkou-Ennedi-Tibesti Region was split into three, with the Tibesti Department becoming the Tibesti Region. The Ennedi Region and Borkou Region were also created at that time. This region lies in the Sahara.Bardaï is the capital of the region.Parts of the Tibesti Mountains are in the region.HistoryAncientThe rock paintings and engravings in Tibesti bear witness to an ancient civilization from 25,000 B.C. There are rock engravings in the area of Zouar, featuring, among others, bovine lovers of fresh grass, they attest to the wet past of the Sahara. The area has mainly been inhabited by the Toubou people.Age of ColonizationIn 1869, Gustav Nachtigal, sent by Otto von Bismarck to contact the Sultan of Bornu, was the first European to travel the Tibesti from Zouar to Bardaï. Condemned by the traditional assembly of the Toubou to capital punishment for espionage, he appealed, but this was rejected. He was only released upon the intervention of Maï Arami Tetimi, and after his return to Germany, he published the book Sahara and the Sudan.
