Overview of Itinerary

Located in south eastern Chad, you’ll find Zakouma National Park, a true wildlife treasure. Uncover 350 000 hectares of raw, wild Africa. Here, lions roam open plains in search of vast buffalo herds, and red-billed queleas flock in their thousands. Roan , tiang , amazing birding, local villages and cultures complete this very special picture.

A park once ravaged by civil conflict and poaching, Zakouma is one of African Parks real turnaround success stories. Evidence of their conservation efforts being rewarded include:

● A buffalo population that has grown from 200 in 1986, to over 10,000 in 2016.

● A thriving elephant population which was brought back from the brink of extinction

● Zakouma is home to 50% of Africa’s Kordofan Giraffe population

In 2019, Wild Frontiers led an expedition to Zakouma, guided by Alan McSmith. With 32 years of safari industry experience in several African countries, Alan lives and breathes as a private safari guide, tracker and conservationist. He is an accredited Zakouma guide who led our 2019 trip. Alan has been selected to train the Zakouma guides with African Parks at the end of 2019 , in a wide range of guiding principles , for a period of 6 weeks. As well as this he will be investigating opening up of new areas of the park , so when he guides our groups in April 2020, he will be extremely knowledgeable on the area , and add unique value and insight to our guests on these trips. He has spent many years guiding safaris and walking trails throughout Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa.
