N’djamena, Chad

With a population of just under 1 million, N’djamena, the capital and largest city in Chad, is the most expensive city to live in Africa. It ranked 11th worldwide, moving up three places as compared to last year’s report. Expats complain that various items, including safe apartments, are hard to find. For instance, an international daily newspaper is priced at $7 while a Club sandwich and soda can go as much as $26. Due to the expense of food and other necessities, 62 per cent of Chadians lives below the international poverty line of $1.25 a day, according to UNICEF.
