Katavi National Park Accommodation

Hidden in plain sight in Tanzania’s remote south west, is Tanzania’s third largest national park, one of Africa’s most unspoilt wildlife destinations, the Katavi National Park. Large herds of buffalo, often over 1000 animals, roam this vast wilderness, along with many other big African mammals, their wild existence mostly uninterrupted by human presence. Only a tiny handful of very discerning travelers visit this ‘secret’ paradise every year, mostly less than 300. The distance and cost are also quite prohibitive, leaving only the very seasoned few nature lovers to find their way to what may well be Africa’s last true wilderness. Here, scattered about in the harsh African terrain, a few outposts, await the eager traveler to offer rest and nourishment after a long day exploring the many hidden wonders that still lie undiscovered here. Among this very small number, a few stand out for their unique character, and for the surprising variety in their offerings. We highlight three of these facilities and how they attend to the diverse needs of our diverse clientele on their Katavi safari.

The Chada Katavi Camp perhaps best embodies the true spirit of the perfect African safari. A functional safari explorer’s base with all the practical facilities, and an unmatched enthusiasm and love for the African wild. They offer enough comfort to get you totally rested, enough nourishment to give you the energy you need to venture out, and just enough vanity to remind you that despite how much you feel at one with the bush, you are still 100% human. The Katavi Wilderness Camp operates just as long as it is practical. In the drier months of the year, the lodge offers a spectacular location where you are essentially still among the wildlife even from the comfort and safety of your semi-luxury tent. The Katuma Bush Lodge dispenses with the romanticism and offers you all the small, familiar luxuries of a regular city life, yet sufficiently surprising you every time you step out of your luxury suite. You are still at the heart of this raw, rustic, and eternally beautiful wildlife destination. There’s something for everyone and we can get you a package to suite your personality and budget.
