Lodge

Katavi Wildlife Camp is set amongst the trees that fringe the Katisunga plains.  From your vantage point either on your tents veranda or from the upper viewing lounge you can join the predators watching the plains game during the day.  Then anticipate the excitement of the predators hunting their dinner as the game move back to the trees in the evenings.

 
 
 

Tents

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 it’s own large veranda with hammock and chairs. There are four double tents and two twin tents, and all have a safe.
 
After dark, guests are escorted to and from their tent by Askari.

 
 
 

Dining/Bar

The camp is located where the Katuma river drains the Katisunga plain and the  two-storey main banda is perfectly located to maximise viewing of the daily movements of game between grazing and drinking from the Katuma river. Downstairs consists of a bar, a few sitting areas with comfortable armchairs, and a cosy dining area at the front of the banda, overlooking the Katisunga plains.
 
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.
 

 
 
 

Accessibility

The tents at Katavi have ramped access, and a spacious bathroom, but no specific adaptations.  A plastic chair can be provided for showering and the staff are always willing to help in any way required.
