Katavi & Mahale - Chimps & Big Game

This luxury Tanzania Safari offers a unique opportunity to explore one of the most remote corners of Africa.

Fly to Kilimanjaro and head to the remote West of Tanzania for a stay in two luxury tented camps.

This remote Tanzania safari includes walking safaris, game drives, lake excursions by dhow, kayaking and the highlight of the trip, chimp trekking in the Mahale Mountains.

You'll also spend a night fly camping in Katavi - a fabulous (and suprisingly comfortable) experience which will get you as close to the African wilderness as possible.

The remoteness of this region means you'll truly ensconced in the wilderness, far from the well trodden safari routes.

The best months for this trip are July to October, although June and November also represent very good value.

As with all of our holidays to Tanzania and East Africa, this onc can be tailored to suit you, so just let us know your preferences. We can easily combine this with a Serengeti Migration safari or a Luxury Beach extension in Zanzibar.

Chada Katavi

Chada Katavi is a traditional safari camp in one of Tanzania’s least visited but most rewarding safari destinations.

Chada Katavi is small and intimate, with just 6 spacious and comfortable East African safari tents, each with a wide-open front offering panoramic views of the plain and animal life that constantly comes and goes.

Chada Katavi is designed to be a stylishly simple bushcamp with a light footprint.

What’s so Special?

Katavi is about as far away as you can possibly get from the tourist circuit, an outpost in far off western tanzania Little has changed here since Chada Katavi was established in the late 1990’s.

From the air you have to look carefully to spot the tents, amongst the wide-open spaces of Katava, and that's the promise of a stay at Chada Katavi, total absorption into the natural world.

It’s common at Chada Katavi to be able to see game from the tent veranda.

Elephant are frequent visitors, attracted to the shady fruit trees, and vast herds of buffalo graze on the flood plain.

Bear in Mind

Chada Katavi is remote and far removed from Tanzania's more visited northern circuit. The remoteness adds to the difficulty and expense of getting here.

Katavi National Park

Katavi National Park in the far west of Tanzania is somewhere that even today, few people have been lucky enough to visit.

Katavi is remote and feels untouched, almost like travelling back in time.

The park centres on a series of wide flood plains, blond with waist high grass in the early dry season, green and flooded like a mini Okavango after the rains.

Connecting the main flood plains is a network of fragile seasonal rivers that form the focus of the game viewing for which Katavi is renowned during the dry season.

In the late dry season, there are few places that offer such a raw and wild experience as Katavi, which is truly one of the most exciting game parks in Africa.
