Katavi Wildlife Camp is very exclusive and located in the best game area at Ikuu on the banks of the Katuma River opening out on to the biggest plain – Katisunga which is the middle of the 3 main plains that form Katavi making both Lake Katavi and Lake Chada also accessible from this camp.
Katavi consists of 6 large Meru-style tents, overlooking the plain; each built on a raised wooden platform, and sheltered from the midday sun by a traditionally thatched roof. Each tent is en-suite, and has its own large veranda with hammock and chairs. There are four double tents and two twin tents, and all have a safe. The two-storey main banda is perfectly located to maximize viewing of the daily movements of game between grazing and drinking from the Katuma river.
Upstairs is a sitting area where guests can relax in the heat of the day, with stunning and far-reaching views overlooking the Katisunga plains. There is a small selection of books and magazines to browse.
Just out the front is our fire-pit, where guests can have a pre-dinner drink and swap stories from the day’s safari.
