Tchad has true otherworldly beauty: seas of orange-yellow sand, multi-coloured oases, and surreal rock formations. After all, most of the country is a part of the Sahara Desert. But Tchad also has one of the world's largest single herd of elephants, many lions, some surprising rhino and cheetah, 70% of the world’s rare Kordofan giraffe and over 10,000 Central African savanna buffalo, which range in colour from jet-black to magenta.
This is wild adventuring, including driving across seas of sand, seeing rock paintings that are 1000s of years old, and coming face to face with elephants whose recovery is one of the most heartwarming of wildlife conservation stories in the modern era.
But that's not all. Meet dromedaries. See the Toubou. Visit a guelta. What are these? Read on. And last but not least - in these times, if you are looking for a holiday with an emphasis on isolation, then look no further than Tchad. Truly.
Tassili n'Ajjer is a vast plateau in south-east Algeria. It covers an area of 72,000 sq. km. with an exceptional density of the paintings and engravings, as well as the presence of many prehistoric vestiges. From Roman ruins to stunning dunes, from Touareg encounters to experiencing giraffes and hippos in the desert, this trip to the edge of Africa is not to be missed!
Instead of dashing in and out of this vast reserve after spending a scant 2-3 days here, we will circumnavigate the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, passing by pans and valleys with names like Piper’s Pan, Sunday Pan, Passarge Valley, hoping to see the famous black-maned Kalahari lions, cheetah, vast herds of oryx and other desert-adapted species like springboks, brown hyena, porcupine, red hartebeest, blue wildebeest, and all manner of birds and reptiles.
Do join us as we embark on an intimate journey in Kenya and follow the "re-wilding" of elephants (orphaned by human-wildlife conflict, poaching and natural disasters) from their baby-years at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust nursery in Nairobi, to their adolescent years and the stockades of Tsavo East.
A safari like no other — from flying over Gambella National Park to travelling to the remotest parts of Ethiopia's Omo Valley. This is Undiscovered Country!

Explore wilderness watching wildlife at close range is endlessly fascinating and the quintessence of every African safari or Kenya Holiday. Conservancy safari is unlike anywhere else with off-road driving and limits on vehicles.
