Tucked away in Tanzania’s far west, Katavi is a collection of untouched plains, occasionally flooded after the rains. Simple yet elegant Chada Katavi sits lightly on these ephemeral grasslands, with just six Meru-style guest tents, designed to blend completely into their natural surroundings.
Inside every tent is a flushing eco-loo and an urn full of water for washing your face. Bucket showers are provided to wash off the dust of Katavi, while conserving the most valuable resource of all. Large netted windows catch the breeze whilst a broad veranda out the front provides a shady space to unwind.
In a clearing, you’ll find a dining tent, library and campfire – perfect settings to sit back with a refreshing drink and a book when you aren’t out exploring the wilderness in a vehicle or on foot. Fly camping adds an extra dose of adventure to your safari – walk across the bush with an armed scout and watch elephants up close, before falling asleep under the vast open skies in the comfort of a mosquito-proof tent.
