Chada Katavi

Katavi

Chada Katavi is a small and intimate camp with just six East African safari tents. Each tent is spacious and comfortable with wide-open fronts giving you panoramic views of the plain and animal life that constantly comes and goes. From the air you have to be looking carefully to spot the tents as they blend totally into their surroundings. So much so in fact, that you often don’t have to leave your tent veranda to see game of all kinds. Elephant are frequent visitors, attracted to the same shady fruit trees, and vast herds of buffalo graze on the flood plain. Chada Katavi is stylish and wonderfully comfortable; all the resources are shared with Katavi’s animals and so the human footprint remains light. Chada Katavi’s tents are raised up on wooden platforms on the edge of the Chada Plain. They have wide-open fronts and lots of shade net windows to let in the passing breeze.The en-suite bathrooms are at the side, also on platforms, and have eco-flush loos, an urn of cool water to refresh yourself. Safari style bucket showers are the best thing here, tried and tested and we can think of no better way to wash off the Katavi dust under one of these.In a clearing you’ll find the dining tent and a library, both are comfortable spaces to while away the hours when you’re not out in the midst of a safari adventure. An evening drink around the camp fire is the essence of safari, helping to round off a day of excitement out in the wild.
