Zakouma National Park

This national park is a major Chadian success story. After poaching and civil war ravaged the area’s wildlife, the Chadian government and the EU restocked the park with an eye on the affluent European tourist market. Now you can see large herds of elephants, as well as giraffes, wildebeests, monkeys, lions, and a wide variety of antelopes and bird life.

The best time to come is March and April when the animals congregate around watering holes. It is not possible to visit June-October because of the rains. Getting to the park can be laborious with the best option being organising the visit through one of N’Djamna’s travel agencies.
