Unique Wildlife Safari in Chad

 
Exploring Zakouma National Park

Fast becoming the poster-child as the unique and wild African safari destination of the moment, Chad - and more specifically Zakouma National Park - is a magical blend of conservation success story, and rugged wilderness adventure blended into one. Recent political events have started to settle and if you are looking to expand your horizons, it is certainly somewhere to consider getting to in the next couple of years before it starts to become too well-visited, losing its uniqueness.

Following a decade of regeneration this beautiful region of pans and Sahelian forest is thriving. After heavy rains from June to November the landscapes dry out, making February to May the perfect time for a safari.

In Chad we work with a couple of highly experienced specialist guides. One is leading a set trip from 22nd February to 3rd March 2022 which still has space. We can also arrange a private safari for a small group of family or friends, though we do need plenty of notice in view of the guide’s commitments and logistical considerations.

Since 2018 Africa National Parks has also begun developing wildlife corridors and areas adjoining Zakouma and the whole is over 30,000 square km. Work began in 2010 after poachers had killed 95% of the elephants, leaving just a couple of hundred survivors.

African National Parks has carried out superb work with local communities, providing education for children in 17 schools and income generation linked to the fledgling tourism infrastructure. Almost no poaching has occurred in recent years and there are now over 500 elephants, 12,000 buffalo among 66 mammal species.

Game viewing centres upon the magnificent pans in the eastern part of the park. Their reliable water draws an abundance of wildlife including rare sub-Sahelian species like Kordofan giraffe, Lelwel’s hartebeest and northern greater kudu. Predators are much in evidence including wild dog, leopard, cheetah, lion and both spotted and striped hyena. There are also plenty of smaller cats such as serval.

The pans are also a magnificent setting for enjoying the birdlife. Great flocks of white and pink backed pelican and yellow-backed, marabou and saddle billed storks can be seen. In 2018 a count observed 13,885 black crowned cranes! The 373 recorded species include many Sahelian specials like the Beaudouin’s snake eagle and the Abyssinian ground hornbill.

You would be based in fairly simple safari accommodation and a fly camp – remember, you are virtually pioneering! Game viewing would be on foot and by vehicle. In 2023 we have plans to also include the amazing sandstone landscapes and rich cultural heritage of the 40,000 square km Ennedi National Park in Northern Chad.
