Zakouma - February 2018 - It's affordable

1 post in this topic

From the moment that @@Paolo posted his first report from Zakouma it has moved to the top of my bucket list.

Unfortunately all the trips I could find were beyond my budget.


The logical next step was to put together my own itinerary. So I did.


The itinerary is not very long - at the moment it is just 8 nights - but could easily be made longer if that is what people want. However this will give you an idea of costs.


Proposed departure date is February 2018



1 - arrive N'Djamena - overnight in Mercure Hotel (dinner not included)

2 - en route - overnight camping

3 - arrive Zakouma - Tinga Lodge, twin share

4,5,6,7 - Zakouma National Park - Tinga Lodge

8 - en route - overnight camping

9 - arrive N'Djamena, trip ends


Cost per person:

In a group of 4 people is Euro 3,160

In a group of 2 people is Euro 3,740



  • 4x4 vehicle(s) specially equipped for desert expeditions. (for a party fo 2 people there would be 1 4x4 Toyota Land Cruiser, for a party of 4 there would be 2 4x4 Toyota Land Cruisers)
  • English speaking guide (European with extensive knowledge of Chad
  • Government travel permits
  • local taxes
  • full board for days 2-8, cook and all kitchen equipment provided
  • accommodation: 1 night N'Djamena, 2 nights desert camping, 5 nights Tinga Lodge, Zakouma
  • all camping equipment (except sleeping bags and pillows)
  • park entrance fees
  • 10 game drive activities in Zakouma



  • International flights
  • Visas
  • travel insurance
  • personal expenses
  • tips
  • meals other than breakfast in N'Djamena
  • drinks

So there you have it.


Is anyone interested???
