March 2020 Chad

This is what safari Africa is meant to be.

Zakouma National Park in Chad is a rare conservation success story. African Parks (AP) took over the park in 2010 and have done an extraordinary job of stemming the tide of poaching, and carving out a real future for this little-known corner of Africa.

Camp Nomade is stylishly simple, with everything you need and nothing you don’t, and offers a truly authentic and intimate safari experience. Hosting a maximum of 8 guests on only 16 safaris a year, this is fast becoming the “must go to” place for the safari cognoscenti. Zakouma delivers the freedom to explore in ways that very few parks can in today’s increasingly regulated Africa. Using the camp as a base, we explore remote pans and corners of the Salamat River, often sleeping in the perfect fly camp – essentially just a mosquito net under the stars.

Zakouma is a place of real abundance, and it is perhaps this that makes it so remarkable. Flocks of 5,000 plus black crowned cranes; swarms of ten million Red-billed Quelea; waterfowl too numerous to count and plains teeming with wildlife, much of it unusual. Large herds of orange-tinted buffalo fringe the pans, Kordofan giraffe, roan antelope, tiang and hosts of other species speckle the plains. Lion are numerous and represent the single largest population of the highly endangered West African subspecies.
