Katavi Wildlife Camp

Katavi Wildlife Camp is a lovely bush camp in heart of Katavi National Park. It is one of only two permanent safari camps in the Park.

Katavi Wildlife Camp is a small, intimate camp located in the heart of Katavi National Park, southern Tanzania. Situated on the banks of the Katuma River, in the game-rich region of Ikuu, this is one of only two permanent safari camps in Katavi, ensuring a quiet safari experience away from the crowds. The camp overlooks the Katuma River and the Katisunga Plains, which provides great game-viewing opportunities, particularly during the dry season.

Katavi is one of the most remote and wild of Tanzania's game parks, attracting only a very small number of tourists each year. Access is via light aircraft only.

Katavi isn't a luxury camp, but it's hardly basic either. The rooms are comfortably furnished, and the food and service is generally very good. Nevertheless, it's the location that is the real attraction here. You shouldn't expect the facilities of a luxury Serengeti camp (though the camp does have a WiFi connection, which is something of a novelty in remote Tanzania!)

Accommodation

Katavi Wildlife Camp offers eight spacious walk-in tents on wooden platforms, each with their own private veranda and en-suite bathroom. These are traditional Meru-style safari tents, modestly furnished with large double beds, desks and mkeka mats.

Dining

There are options for communal dining - in the dining area or around the boma-fire - or private dining in the comfort of your tent.

There is a relaxed bar with great views of the plains.
