Chada Katavi

Discover Chada Katavi

Chada Katavi Camp is an off-the-beaten track camp set deep in the heart of Katavi National Park, in remote Western Tanzania. It sits under a shady canopy of acacia and tamarind trees overlooking the wide Chada Plain and is a hub of wildlife activity, particularly elephants in the dry season.

There are just 6 spacious safari tents with large shade net windows to let in lots of light and cool breezes. The ensuite bathrooms have traditional safari style bucket showers, and eco- flush toilets. There is hot and cold water available on demand. From the camp you can enjoy epic walking safaris, game drives in open 4WD vehicles, night drives, fly camping under the stars, outstanding birding, and big mammal safaris.
