The success of our camps ultimately comes down to our extensive and hands-on experience managing safaris. From the beginning the company has grown from the interests and talents of the family. Above all, each and every one of us just loves to be on safari and are passionate about protecting these wildernesses that we love so much.
When to visit
Katavi enjoys a 6 month dry period from June through to end October. As the park dries out the animals are concentrated into smaller areas contributing to the spectacularly large herds. From November to February the park turns green and lush, still with excellent viewing and better than ever bird populations. The camp is open from the 1st June through to the end of February. The main reason for closing at this time is that the soil is black cotton which is very challenging when wet.
Community and Conservation
Foxes Safari Camps are heavily committed to working with communities in Tanzania and operate an NGO – Foxes Community and Wildlife Trust which runs health, education, social and childcare projects. For more information visit http://www.orphansinthewild.org/
Our camps are committed to the protection and sustainable development of our natural environment, as part of the commitment have planted over 6000 trees.
Safari Air Link (www.flysal.com) run a bi weekly schedule to Katavi National Park departing from Ruaha and return through to Dar and Zanzibar. The flights only operate on Mondays and Thursdays. There is also an option to fly in from Arusha, also on Mondays and Thursdays. By road, Katavi is accessed via Sumbawanga, but the roads are not in good condition and the drive can take a lot longer than anticipated.
