Chada Katavi

Chada Katavi is a charming and intimate camp with only 6 beautifully furnished East African style tents that are very spacious and perfectly located enabling you to explore Katavi’s seasonable rivers, open plains and woodlands.

Overview

Chada Katavi is situated in the heart of Katavi National Park with a focus on the wildlife that often is not very far from the camp. Chada Katavi has been open for 20 years, and since opening very little has changed. Katavi promises total immersion into the natural world and the camp is concealed beneath the tree tops of Acacia and Tamarind trees surrounded by vast open spaces miles from anywhere. Chada Katavi is as far away as you can get from the main tourist circuit and because of this it feels untouched almost as if you are travelling back in time.

Other activities

As well as the unbelievable game drives that you can do in your own private 4×4, Chada Katavi offers the opportunity to experience a walking safari with your own guide and an armed scout, so make sure you bring a good pair of walking boots! You might find yourself watching elephants from up close or you might have chosen to have a stroll along the river to see the many types of birds, crocodiles or hippos who are all major features of the Katavi wildlife.

Chada Katavi also offers the more adventurous guests the opportunity to go fly camping where you will spend the night lying under the stars in a small tent with enough room for a bedroll kitted out with soft mattress, sheets and a feather pillow. In the evening you will sit down to a three-course candle lit meal and a glass of wine with a stunning backdrop to the main event before returning to your tent to listen to the wild animals that you would not normally hear in the day time.
