Laghi Ounianga

Situati a nord del Ciad e nel pieno deserto del Sahara, tra i massicci del Tibesti e dell’Ennedi; i laghi  Ounianga

sono un gruppo di una cinquantina di laghi d’acqua salata. In questa regione desertica le acque blu e verdi dei

diversi laghi costituiscono una vera e propria ricchezza idrologica. L’acqua è inoltre presente sotto forma di

stagni d’acqua dolce e salmastra dove vivono pesci, nonché sotto forma di sorgenti vicino alle scogliere e alle

dune che costeggiano i diversi laghi.

I laghi  Ounianga sarebbero un unico lago più grande che occupava il bacino oltre 5000 anni fa. Essi

abbracciano una superficie totale di 20 km quadri e formano il più vasto complesso lacustre del Sahara.

I laghi di Ounianga sono stati dichiarati Patrimonio mondiale dall’Unesco nel 2012.
