Chad Safari, Tours & Holidays
Chad Safari, Tours & Holidays
Chad, officially known as the Republic of Chad, is a landlocked country in north-central Africa. It is bordered by Libya to the north, Sudan to the east, the Central African Republic to the south, Cameroon to the south-west, Nigeria to the southwest, and Niger to the west.
Virtually unvisited for three decades due to a series of civil wars, the last of which ended in 2010, the country has finally reached a level of stability and is opening up to travellers, albeit under certain conditions which the traveller would do well to understand.
By definition, the choice is limited in Chad. Currently, despite rumours of Enedi in the north opening up, Chad remains complicated at the time of writing and Zakouma is the only place you can realistically expect to visit on a pre-arranged safari. However, the resounding success story in terms of conservation is Zakouma National Park, brought back from the brink by Africa Parks, this rich and diverse park is well worth a visit.
Zakouma has been off-limits for the last three decades – tantalizingly however it’s possible to visit this important wilderness once again. Zakouma is, in parts, strongly reminiscent of some of its better-known peers – the Bahr Salamat looks like the Luangwa River with its sand-bars and nesting Northern Carmine Bee-eaters, while its concentrations of enormous crocodiles are comparable to the Katuma in Katavi.
It provides an eccentric mix of the familiar with the unusual. The most remarkable thing about Zakouma is the work of Africa Parks on the conservation front; it has been hauled back from basket-case status to that of a viable national park and those who will gain most from visiting (and be most welcomed) are those looking to be involved as serious donors with the project. Conservation and rarity value aside – it is worth taking a clear-eyed look at the safari experience in Zakouma and asking all but the most committed whether the additional cost is justified by the experience on offer.

Rwanda holiday packages
Rwanda is accessible all year round but the dry season between June and September is renowned for being the best time to go to Rwanda. There is often light cloud cover during this time of year and it makes for a comfortable climate for gorilla trekking experience.
Doing things for the first time in Rwanda is exciting and fun, but it can also be a bit scary especially when it comes to safaris – a situation that puts you in a new country surrounded by wild animals! That said, once you know you’re in good hands, the anxiety dissipates and you’re left with the freedom to make the most of your adventure.
Being a safari company in Africa offering highly defined exclusive journeys in all African countries takes nothing like experience to be able to do that for years and this is why we are your preferred safari operator in Africa.
