Zakouma National Park: Chad, 8-17 April 2020 Group Trip

Not escorted by Cindi LaRaia

Zakouma National Park, Chad

Zakouma National Park: Chad
8-17 April 2020
9 night/10 day private safari

Very unique and off the beaten path.
An untouched part of Africa that few other westerner's have experienced.

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 itinerary.

In April 2020, we will be returning to Zakouma on a 10 day expedition led 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.

Alan McSmith

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


"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."
