Katavi Wilderness Camp is only open June to end November to coincide with the dry season. Katavi National Park is one of Tanzania's most remote and therefore lessor known parks. With a mere 200 visitors a year, Katavi is the ultimate in off the beaten track safari destinations. Lake Katavi and Lake Chada have an abundant population of hippopotamus and crocodiles and the adjacent floodplains are home to a multitude of different water birds.

Katavi is for travelers passionate about wild Africa. Due its vast size, the grassland plains seem to stretch to infinity. Isolation and inaccessibility have meant that herd sizes are huge and it is not unknown to see up to 1600 buffalo at once! Lion, and other predators, wait along the fringed woodland to ambush the game as it returns to the woodland for shelter at sundown. There are few places like it.

Katavi wilderness camp is exclusive and located in the best game area of the park. The camp consists of six tents which are luxurious in both size and furnishings. Each has a private bathroom. There is solar power for lights and charging batteries. Meals are enjoyed in the open or a communal dining tent. Located in amongst the trees lining the floodplain, the tents are sheltered with shade and are superbly camouflaged so that the wildlife is mostly unaware of your presence.

Katavi Wilderness Camp is located in Katavi National Park, Western Tanzania

Specially adapted four wheel drive vehicles are used on game drives, with two-way radio and tiered seating for visibility. Tom Appleby, an experienced zoologist and professional guide, will host your visit and lead game drives and walks.
