Safari summary

This is not an ordinary safari I suggest you just book and go as there is nowhere quite like Zakouma. There is a simply wonderful array of animals here that include all the big cats and the big mammals - the Kordofan giraffe, now probably comprising 50% of the African population. Red-fronted Gazelle, Lelwel's hartebeest, Tiang, Oribi, Bohor reedbuck, and Pangolin. Among the predators, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and Spotted hyena, as well as smaller predators such as Viverridae species, Serval, Caracal, Honeybadger and wildcat, occur in the park. Canidae is represented by four species including the Sand or Pale Fox and the Wild Dog. Three primates are found, namely the olive baboon, the patas monkey, and the tantalus monkey. Spaces are always limited to visit Zakouma, and this is the perfect safari.  Our team are extremely experienced at bringing visitors to Zakouma, arguably the most experienced and certainly the best value.
