ZAKOUMA - CHAD
Zakouma is a park of extremes and abundance – we encounter flocks of millions of red-billed quelea flying to roost, tens of thousands of waterbirds on dwindling pans and thousands of black-crowned cranes flying into the sunset. The big game is plentiful too. The park is the last stronghold of a thriving population of Kordofan Giraffe. Roan Antelope, Tiang and a host of other somewhat unusual antelope species are common and the parks healthy Lion population live alongside large herds of Central African Savannah Buffalo. The uniqueness of a safari in Zakouma is that you are in an untouched part of Africa that few other westerners have experienced.
