Nice tents with incredible views over the Chada Plain. The night sounds are amazing - lions, hyenas, hippos. And that was the first night! The tents are comfortable with king sized bed, and "attached bathroom tent" and an outside shower where hot water is "on demand" and provided by the camp staff. We had plenty of water - the buckets are big. The food served here was great but then it was at nearly every camp we stayed at in Tanzania. It ws all-inclusive so it was convenient to have a drink and not be bothered by the accounting, while we sat around the fire at night watching the stars and recounting the day's adventures. One really nice thing about this park is it is difficult to reach and you will not see the vehicles and other tourists you will find on the Serengetti.
The game drives were spectacular and we had very helpful guide/drivers. This is a magical location where hippos are the specialty but we also got good lion and leopard action. Unfortunately, also tsetse fly action which loved me but not everyone. I got bit a lot but so far seem to have survived. I will remember this camp forever. Great EXPERIENCE!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 20 years ago, when Roland Purcell first landed his plane in Katavi there wasn't a camp in site. It was no accident that he chose to pitch his camp overlooking the game-rich floodplain of Chada.Today, Chada Katavi retains the pioneering spirit on which it was founded. Perfectly placed to explore Katavi's fragile seasonal rivers, open plains and woodland, the focus here is on wildlife and the action is rarely far from camp.And yet few who visit us fail to remark on the charm and intimacy of this little camp. With only six beautifully furnished tents, it's understated...but effortlessly sophisticated. ... more less
