Ennedi Massif: Africa's remote geological wonder

BBC NEWS   16 May 2023   Africa   Chad  

My eyes lifted up towards a rocky ledge carved into a sandstone cliff in the heart of Chad's Ennedi Massif. I saw a face, then, as my eyes adjusted to the gloam, another appeared. Painted in bright ochre and white, men were riding camels and giant cows danced over the entire surface of the rock.
Over millions of years, the wind and rain have sculpted the Ennedi Massif in Chad's remote north-eastern corner into a plateau of inselbergs, lonely spires and towering arches the colour of honeycomb. Meanwhile, primeval people have decorated this landscape, too, painting and carving thousands of images into the rock.
