African wildlife is densely concentrated around this Tanzania safari accommodation in Katavi National Park. Buffalo herds reach a thousand, Hippo pods up to 50 and Lions are everywhere. Chada Katavi is a remarkable Tanzania lodge and remains the only tourist operation in Katavi and is comfortable, nostalgic and stylish.
Chada Katavi tented safari camp has a resident Elephant who comes into the camp and, short of helping himself to a bourbon and soda, seems to be as at home as the guests in this remarkable wilderness region. Game drives by open safari vehicles and walks with armed guards are the favourite Tanzania safari activities. Bush picnics are laid out under shady trees and drinks are usually accompanied by an assortment of wild African animals wandering by.
Man's limited presence in Katavi National Park means that Katavi is like a private preserve, but it is the large mammals who really own it. There is constant conflict between Lion and Leopard, Hippos and Crocodiles, Buffalo and antelope, which makes for electric game viewing and an unforgettable insight into the wilds of Africa on a Tanzania safari.
Chada Katavi welcomes children of 8 years and older. However, only children of 12 years and older can go fly-camping or do walking safaris.
