Chada Katavi Camp

If you like ‘remote’, you’ll love Katavi. If you love uncrowded, raw gameviewing, you’ll love Katavi. And if you are happy with a simple yet comfortable and well-run camp, you’ll love Chada Katavi.

In one of the richest wildlife areas in Tanzania, the wilderness of the Katavi National Park offers isolation and absorption into the natural world. Only about 1500 international visitors make it to Katavi each year, so you really do feel like you have this place to yourself.

Chada Camp is one of only three camps to be found here. Views of the Chada Plain can be enjoyed from the private verandas on the six comfortable safari tents, whilst game drives and guided treks allow you to explore the surrounding wilderness and the abundant wildlife.

Times to Go

Katavi is best in the drier months, from June to mid-November when the plains fill with thousands of zebras, topi and impala, and predators have a feast. The vital water sources of the Katuma and Kapapa rivers attract vast numbers of game and hundreds of hippos congregate in the waterholes, struggling for space as the water diminishes.
