Chad may not be the first location that springs to mind when you plan your travel bucket list, but it is an often-overlooked gem with a noteworthy conservation success story with the government committed to conservation by joining various conventions to work towards making a change. Chad remains relatively untouched and a safari venturing into the country's interior is truly unique.
Explore ancient sandstone formations of the Ennedi Massif, where stone pinnacles and cathedral-like rock formations cast their shadows over the land, and desert nomads have left stellar rock paintings along the cliffs and canyons, herding camels and goats across the sand for over 10,000 years.
Travel South to Zakouma National Park, and explore the world’s most diverse grassland ecosystem which is home to a plethora of life, and is one of Africa’s most dramatic birding experiences. In addition, and one of the continent's huge conservation success stories, the area supports a thriving rehabilitated herd of elephants, and is rich in wildlife diversity in dramatic landscapes.
While Chad has remained off the radar for so long, the wild experiences this remote destination offers are unparalleled and a safari here is reminiscent of Africa 100 years ago offering experiences in pure wilderness.
