Zakouma National Park, April 2018 (10 Days/ 9 Nights)

Zakouma National Park in Chad
Chad – join us on this jaw dropping trip to Zakouma National Park: untamed, untouched, undiscovered

EARLY BIRD OFFER : Book and pay non refundable deposit by end OCT 2017 and SAVE $850 per person

John Addison, director of Wild FrontiersFor those of you who don’t know John Addison, director of Wild Frontiers, he is best known as that bare foot guy always on the quest for Africa’s next best kept secret. A trip with John, a seventh generation South African who has guided and travelled in most parts of Africa for over 35 years, is guaranteed to be a treat. His vast knowledge and boundless enthusiasm for all things wild and natural is spell binding.

Coming soon… 

In 2018, John is again heading to Zakouma National Park in southern Chad. Uncover 350 000 ha of raw, wild Africa - unfenced, untamed, undiscovered. Here, lions roam open plains in search of vast buffalo herds, and red-billed queleas flock in their thousands. Roan, tiang, other rarities and amazing birding, as well as local villages and cultures, complete the 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.

If hot, untamed and untouched is the way you like it, this is one safari you cannot miss.

Zeros for Rhinos – a Fundraising Safari with Great Plains Foundation

Zeros for Rhinos - a fundraising safari with Great Plains Foundation

A SAFARI FOR FREE?
WELL, FOR THE RHINOS!

Great Plains Conservation has committed alongside industry partners to undertake a relocation of rhinos on a magnitude never done before – to relocate no less than 100 rhino from South Africa to safe havens in Botswana. By mid-2015, this relocation operation will take place with an assertive and elaborate anti-poaching force and strong commitment to save this species.

Our fundraising campaign, Zeros For Rhinos, will ensure this relocation initiative is a success; striving to rescue this treasured species from spiraling to extinction. What is gained is the knowledge that we all collectively stopped a species from meeting its maker. Great Plains Foundation, our non-profit partner, will raise the funds to do it, and every dollar counts.

As a fundraiser, Great Plains Conservation has contributed a limited number of safari bednights to the Great Plains Foundation. The cost of your stay in these three camps goes to the fundraising efforts of the Zeros for Rhinos initiative!  

Join us at Zarafa, Selinda or Selinda Explorers camps
an exclusive way of experiencing Africa while contributing to this tremendous initiative!
Included in this limited offer are value-add surprises in camp.**

For more information, contact Africa Discovery at:

or Email us

 

Can’t come on safari? We’ll miss you, but you can still contribute to the Zeros for Rhinos campaign. Any amount counts and matters – $10 from many people will very quickly add up.

Want to know more about this initiative and how we will do it? Read a Q&A with Dereck Joubert here.

**Applicable seasons: Now – 31 May 2014 and 01 Nov 2014 – 31 May 2015 (excluding 19 Dec ‘14 to 10 Jan‘15). A 20% non-refundable reservation is required upon confirmation reservation. Cancelled travel is subject to cancellation penalties, as funds will be committed to the Zeros For Rhinos effort. If the Zeros for Rhinos reserve is not met then funds may be applied to other projects administered by Great Plains Foundation. Full Terms & Conditions available.
