The Chadian Border War, also known as the Chadian-Kamburi WarsKamburi Bush Wars or the Central African Wars, were a series of military conflicts between The Republic of Kamburi and the Republic of Chad over a 16 year period between May 17, 1963 and March 4, 1979.

Fought primarily over for the border town of Sarh and the wetlands of Manda, the conflicts originated due to the fact that when the countries were partitioned in 1960, France cut both Sarh and Manda in two to stop complete warfare between the new states, however, the imperialistic views of both of the nations leaders led to various, often undeclared wars and conflicts which ravaged both nations during the 1960's and 70's.

The only time war was declared was when Kamburi officially announced that a state of warfare existed between it and Chad, thus beginning the last, and most bloody, of the conflicts, the Kamburi War. Both the war and the entire conflict was brought to an end in 1979, when France headed delegates from both nations in peace talks in Sarh, with Kamburi recognizing Chadian claims on Manda and Chad recognizing Kamburian claims on Sarh.
