Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Visited this incredible park with Pictus Safaris in March 2023, and had an amazing time. The diversity of game we saw for a park in Central Africa was even higher than we had hoped, and we saw caracal, serval, aardvark plus the more 'usual' lion, leopard and elephant.

Be warned that the temperatures are extremely hot (over 40 degrees every day) and the night drives are long. You will see lots of wildlife, but some mornings we didn't return to camp until well after midnight.

Like many on their first safari I visited Tanzania's iconic Serengeti and the northern circuit, but my second safari was to be very different. I did a deep dive into African wildlife conservation, community support and tourism conservation which kept leading me to a word that sounded fascinating and an organization that was truly noteworthy. Zakouma, Zakouma, Zakouma ... it seemed like those in the know were all raving about this remarkable conservation success story located in a remote corner of south-west Chad. And as I read the story of Zakouma, I read the story of African Parks, a wildlife conservation organization that manages Zakouma and 19 other national parks across Africa. I was so impressed with Zakouma and African Parks that I wanted to visit so I could contribute to Zakouma's exemplary conservation story.

Zakouma National Park is definitely off the beaten safari track and required a thorough investigation into the logistics of travel to such a remote location and the the best opportunities to visit - either solo or with a group. I definitely did my homework, over about a 2 year period; I contacted every safari guide and agency that was leading trips to Zakouma. I even contacted Zakouma directly and inquired as to solo travel. In the end, I decided to travel with a small group led by the remarkable and pioneering Sangeeta Prasad founder of Chalo Africa and Kenyan guide/naturalist extraordinaire Zarek Cockar for the Zakouma segment, in an itinerary that would encompass both Zakouma and the Ennedi, a rocky plateau and desert region of Chad that I longed to visit. Sangeeta's Zakouma and Ennedi trip was the only itinerary that included both areas and gave them the time they required, as well as the Ouadi-Rimé Ouadi-Achim Game Reserve in Central Chad. I definitely made the right decision and embarked one of the most unforgettable trips of my life.

Zakouma
- probably the most authentic wildlife experience in Africa
- species in huge numbers and great diversity
- interesting and varied terrain
- visited Rigiuliek Pan twice and it was fabulous - a birders paradise
- great for birders, but also fantastic for other species
- the Zakouma elephants are a legendary wildlife conservation success story. I was lucky to witness, for about an hour, a vast herd of 200-300 elephants leisurely cross a river - this was the sighting of a lifetime and brought tears to my eyes

Wildlife Sightings:
- cheetah (very rare to see in Zakouma, but they are there), lions (multiple prides), african wild cat, serval
- roan, tiang, kudu, lewel hartbeest, red fronted gazelle, western kob, defassa waterbuck, bush buck, striped gazelle, bohor reedbuck, duiker
- buffalo (huge herds)
- Kordofan giraffe (large numbers)
- elephants
- striped hyena, spotted hyena
- patas monkeys, tantalus monkeys, baboons
- many civets, genets and bush babies
- ostrich
- crocodiles, nile monitor lizard, spurs tortoise
- cobra

Birds:
- enchanting clouds of red billed quelea murmurs
- carmine bee eater, red throated bee eater, green bee eater
- great white pelican
- black crowned crane
- african spoonbill
- knob-billed duck, white faced whistling duck
- egyptian goose, spur winged goods
- saddle bill stork, wholly necked stork, african open billed stork, marabou stork
- abyssian crowned hornbill, african grey hornbill, northern red billed hornbill
- bateleur eagle, tawny eagle, african frish eagle, long crested eagle
- greyish eagle owl
- senegal coucal
- abyssian roller
- spur winged plover, african wattle plover
- great white egrets, little egrets, cattle egrets
- sacred ibis, glossy ibis
- purple starling, long tailed starling, nightjars

TINGA CAMP = 5 STARS
- loved Tinga Camp and highly recommend it
- a comfortable down-to-earth camp with a fabulous location overlooking a dried river valley that acted as an avian highway - awseome!
- the rooms were neat and comfortable with a bed, desk/chair and closet with an overhead fans, electrical outlets and mosquito nets (though did not need the nets as it was dry season so did not really notice any mosquitos)
- each room had an ensuite toilet and a separate shower and sink area
- each chalets is built with 4 separate rooms that are well sound proofed
- the main open-air reception, dining and lounge area which is also thatched and overlooks the riverbed is just simply perfect
- excellent food
- great service
- outstanding guiding and safaris (mornings, afternoons and evenings)

I visited Ennedi in late February and Zakouma in early March 2020, just before Covid shut the world down and I am so glad I went!

We flew into Zakouma on a charter flight from the Chadian capital of N'Djamena and we drove back with a tented camping overnight enroute as it is a long drive.

We did the Ennedi portion of the trip in 4x4 vehicles driving the entire distance, due to a cancellation of the scheduled domestic flights. But it was awesome - quite the roadtrip - and I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Zakouma is unforgettable! If you ever get the chance to go, GO!
It's an authentic safari in the conservation story of the century.

Este parque es una autentica joya desconocida en el sur del Chad.
Ha tenido una historia reciente bastante convulsa ya que en un periodo de 8 años del 2002 al 2010 fue devastado por los furtivos con la masacre del 95% de los elefantes, alrededor de 4000, para la venta del marfil de sus colmillos. En 2010 el gobierno del Chad firmó un acuerdo con African Parks para llevar la gestión del parque y acabar con el furtivismo a toda costa, desde entonce las cosas han cambiado mucho y ahora empieza a recuperar la fauna y a recibir visitantes y turistas de todo el mundo.
La población de búfalos del parque se redujo a unos 220 animales en 1986, pero ahora supera los 12.000, hay más de 600 elefantes, antílopes ruano, Alcélafos de Lelwel y Jirafas Kordofan (50% de la población mundial).
Se están re-introduciendo los rinocerontes. Hay leones (unos 150), leopardos, cocodrilos, etc. y la riqueza en aves es sorprendente.

Einzigartiger NP im Tschad. Schon die Reise von N´Djamena ist ein Ereignis in sich, mal bekommt einen guten EInblick in das örtliche Leben. Der Nationalpark hat alles, was man sich von einem großen Park erwarten kann: geführte Safari zweimal täglich vom Tinga Camp aus mit einem sehr kundigen Führer. Große Elefantenherde, Löwen, unzählige Vögel und andere Tiere in unberührter Landschaft. Großartiger Job von African Parks!!

Having read previous reviews, we flew to Zakouma in a almost new Cessna Grand Caravan piloted by a very competent Jay. We spent 3 nights at the Tinga Lodge and found the rooms comfortable at night with a ceiling fan and a shuttered window open/insect screen closed - outside daytime temperature peaked above 40 Centigrade. Lunch and dinner were fine and we complimented the basic breakfast with choc-oatmeal bars. Management and staff were very helpful and friendly.

With the exception of elephant herds, most other animals were seen in smaller numbers to what we have seen East/South African game parks. However, this comment does not apply to birds where 'spectacular' would be an understatement when it came to variety and numbers.

Despite using Diet, was the only one to be bitten on the ankles, through the socks, and on my back by what I believe were tsetse flies - ce la vie!

I recently went to Zakouma for the second time and enjoyed it just as much as I had on my previous trip. It was prettier due to the fact that in January it was still wet.

I enjoyed taking the plane trip and flying over the park. It was just fabulous and I saw the largest herd of buffalo that I'd ever seen before. I also could see plenty of elephants, as well as giraffes.

I enjoyed going camping and seeing a leopard. It was obviously hunting and a troop
of baboons was barking furiously. It paid looked at us and walked on.

I was staying at Camp Nomade. The Dutch manager Willem couldn't have been kinder or more courteous. The food was even better than on my last visit. The tents were just as comfortable. I will return.

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 the dry season there are huge flocks of birds, herds of antelope, and some predators around the remaining sources of water. The flocks of quelea in the millions were impressive. We saw many lions too. Night drives were the most productive of any place we’ve been and we saw many servals, genets, Africa wild cat, civets, side-striped jackals, and pale fox (no pictures of the foes though ... too shy).

We stayed at Tinga Camp which was basic but had good service. Lots of game in the vicinity of the camp and there is a carmine bee-eater colony within walking distance. Lunches and dinners were good. They don’t have many English speaking driver guides though so best to go with a group as they will likely assign the English speaking guide to the group. We went with Wild Frontiers and they did a very good job.

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 - we humans could learn a thing or two.

Huge thanks to Adrian Bantich, our guide, and Willem and Iris at Camp Nomade.

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 incredible cacophony of buffalo snorts, lions, etc. Felt like a bucket list item.

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 longing to visit again.

We saw Lions (several prides), Hyena (several), Serval (several), Honey Badger, Civets, Gennets, Baboons, Patas Crocs, Buffalo (herds of 100s), Giraffes (100s), and yes the very elusive Ely herd (250+), in addition to other single male elys. Birds like Pelicans, Crowned Cranes, Storks, Parakeets, Geese, Ducks, Bee Eaters, Raptors, etc by the 1000s. Same with many different kinds of antelopes (Roan, Reedbuck, Topi, Waterbuck,etc)...by the 1000s. Did I mention the million plus Quelea on multiple occasions?

Having said that, it’s not the park for most given the logistical difficulties of getting here, and then staying put. Let’s just say that Camp Tinga can be a challenge, especially in the late dry season. I don’t see how much better Nomade could be either.

Overall, I loved it and highly recommend a visit...but don’t expect a cushy East Africa safari. Special thanks to Doug MacDonald and Steve Gao for leading our rides.
