Throwback to the 2017 wet season as we slowly see the park changing from dry to wet this month. This photo was taken in July, when the park was flooded entirely and access limited to boats, horses and the airplane. Hard to imagine that we will see the water flowing into the system in a few weeks time, but how excited we are!

Storms building up above the Zakouma headquarters. After a week with multiple rain showers the first shoots of green grass are peeking their heads above the ground, and the roads have turned into muddy slippery tracks that black cotton soil can do so well. I think we can safely say that the wet season has started!

Monday morning: even the rhinos are feeling it!

The rhinos are enjoying a well-deserved mud bath after one of the first rains of the season in #zakouma_national_park! All six rhinos are doing very well and adapting quickly to their new environment.

The 4th of May was a historical day for Chad. It was the first time in decades that black rhino set foot on the soil of the country. @africanparksnetwork has been preparing #zakouma_national_park for the return of the rhinos by overhauling law enforcement, working with local communities and improving livelihoods, increasing tourism and providing an overall protection for this extremely rich ecosystem.

We proudly witnessed the graduation of 49 new guards today, who will reinforce the Law Enforcement teams in #zakouma_national_park and form the first anti-poaching teams for Siniaka-Minia Faunal Reserve. The men and women have gone through two months of intensive training to prepare them for the important work in the field.

Women in #zakouma_national_park working in the recently established community vegetable garden, where we grow fresh produce that will soon supply the lodges and staff of their greens. This is one of the projects #africanparksnetwork commenced to #empowerwomen in the region around the park, and provide them with training and an alternative source of income. #internationalwomensday #Chad #Zakouma
