Zakouma National Park is one of the last remaining intact Sudano-Sahelian ecosystems in Africa. Due to its close proximity to the centre of the Chadian Basin, the terrain of the park is almost exclusively flat with the exception of the beautiful...more
My wife and I are seasoned Africa travelers and we were part of a group with four other experienced travelers. We all thought this was one of the best if not THE best safaris we’ve been on. Eights days went by surprisingly quickly. Late in...More
This is absolutely not a trip for sissies - temperatures in the high 40C, lions walking through camp, tetse flies etc - but was the most exceptional wildlife experience we have ever had.
Indescribable quantities of bird and animal species, all rubbing along together -...More
Chad is truly an experience onto itself and Zakouma is an amazing example of the national government and African Parks working together and protecting the beautiful natural heritage of Chad. Birds are abundant, the skies feel limitless. Sleeping in the park you hear the most...More
I spent 6 days in Zakouma in March 2019. In a word, it is Incredible. This is the best that Africa has to offer...please don’t come here, cause your safari experiences are only going to be downhill from here, and I can already feel the...More

I have to say that after having been on no less than 16 safaris in Kenya,Namibia,South Africa, Zambia. Zimbabwe, Botswana, Uganda, Ethiopia, and Tanzania that Zakouma is simply one of the finest safari experiences available. I found that the wilderness vibe and game viewing to...More
Zakouma N.P. would not be for everyone, but it will certainly more than satisfy the 'hard core' wildlife enthusiast. I am reasonably well travelled in sub-Saharan Africa but there is little doubt that this park is simply the best and most interesting I have experienced...More
I spent three days in the park, and took a number of safaris with the drivers and rangers from the Lodge/Park. The vehicles were comfortable. The wildlife and bird watching was interesting. While I saw many different animals, including species I have never before seen,...More
