Katavi Wildlife Camp is set amongst the trees that fringe the Katisunga plains. From your vantage point either on the veranda of your tent 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.
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.
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 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.
