Cape Town, South Africa - October 20, 2015 - Exploring Chad’s Zakouma National Park is every adventurer's dream, offering unparalleled and exclusive wilderness and the opportunity to go as far off the beaten path as you want to. The expert Passage to Africa team are inviting solo travelers to join them on a unique expedition.
As a consistently recognized Travel+Leisure "A-List travel expert," Michael Lorentz, co-founder and CEO of Passage to Africa, has set up an exceptional itinerary led by some of Africa’s elite guides, your passport to visiting Zakouma. The expedition starts with a night at the 5-star Kempinski Hotel in N’Djamena, Chad’s capital and largest city. Then travelers will charter to Zakouma for a seven-night all-inclusive stay at Camp Nomade.
Hosting a maximum of eight guests on only 16 safaris a year, this is fast becoming the go-to’ place for the safari cognoscenti. Camp Nomade is an upmarket mobile camp that allows guests to explore numerous paths and rivers across the 3,000 square kilometers of Zakouma Park. The wildlife experience rivals anything else in better-known safari Africa and perhaps more crucially, the park retains the ineffable sense of being truly wild.
Zakouma National Park is home to 66 mammal species and 374 bird species, highlights include:
  • Walking with the iconic elephant herd
  • Viewing flocks of more than 10 million red-billed quelea
  • The constant presence of northern carmine bee-eaters, like splashes of fire across the sky; a photographer’s dream
  • Encounters with predators both large and small
  • Spotting endangered species including the Kordofan Giraffe, Lelwel hartebeest and West African lion.
Michael Lorentz says, “A journey to Zakouma is like going back to an Africa that was 30 years ago; to have one’s senses ignited and to be inspired…and at the same time, to make a real contribution to conservation. It is the personalization of the experience and its uniqueness, experientially, culturally and spiritually, that transports us. The rewards are infinite - beneath the rough exterior lies a wealth of warmth and undiscovered natural wonders.”
