Overview of Chada Katavi

In the heart of Tanzania’s Katavi National Park, Chada Katavi is a stylish tented camp situated off the beaten track in a landscape of seasonal rivers, open plains and woodlands. From its elevated vantage point, the lodge is perfectly positioned for panoramic views over the Chada plain, while the canopy of acacias, kigelias and tamarinds are a popular source of shade and food for wildlife.

Go on thrilling game drives in open-air vehicles or explore the area on guided walking safaris. For an authentic safari experience, go fly-camping for the night under the stars, or simply enjoy soaking it all up from your tent veranda.
