We are thrilled to be returning to Zakouma National Park, Chad, in 2020. Our trip this April was incredible, as summed up by our phenomenal guide Alan McSmith
“A bonanza of beauty, conservation success and incredible hope … a safari here, beyond the frontier, will leave you stirred and speechless.”
Zakouma teems with massive elephant herds (a population of 600 in a 3000km reserve), abundant predators and Africa’s largest population of Kordofan Giraffe. The volumes of open-billed stork and red-billed quelea, amongst other prolific birdlife on the floodplains, is jaw-dropping. It’s remote, untouched, unspoilt.
But don’t just take our word for it. A couple that joined us are really expert African travellers having been on countless safaris, but they say this was “probably the best safari experience we have ever had. Alan is an excellent guide and really added value to the experience, being particularly good at spotting on night drives. Day & night games drives were extremely productive. We enjoyed other activities like walking safaris and a village market visit. Game and birdlife was extremely plentiful and interesting. Zakouma fully lives up to its reputation, with the trip being very well organized, and can be highly recommended.”
