Chada Katavi, Tanzania
Western Tanzania’s Katavi National Park offers one of the greatest wildlife experiences in Africa – it is thought to have a greater density of mammals than any other Tanzanian reserve. Miles from anywhere, it is the Park’s very inaccessibility which is proving its salvation. Katavi remains the domain of only wildlife and the most intrepid of explorers.
From its elevated vantage point on a peninsula which rises out of acacia woodland, this intimate camp enjoys spectacular far-reaching views across the wide Chada Plain. Hidden amongst the trees, six tents revel in their splendid isolation – each one boasting fine wooden furniture, woven rugs and crisp white Egyptian cotton. The tents are large, romantic and airy with ‘bush-deluxe’ bathrooms comprising a traditional safari-style bucket shower and long drop toilet.
Vast herds of buffalo roam the plains – and you are also likely to see lion, elephant, leopard, cheetah, crocodiles and hippo. Days at Chada Katavi can be wild beyond belief – and you will return each evening to silverware gleaming in the mess tent and glasses shining in the lamplight. This is wild Africa at its mythical best.
In addition to game drives, you can also enjoy walking safaris or optional ‘fly-camping’ under the African stars (extra cost). This is a place for the wildlife connoisseur or the traveller who believes the African bush has no more surprises... you will undoubtedly feel like one of the last great pioneers of this vast continent!
