Panoramic views of the Katisunga Plains greet arriving guests at Mbali Mbali Katavi Lodge, set at the heart of Tanzania’s third largest reserve: the Katavi National Park. Located in central Tanzania, Katavi is also one of the least visited reserves in the country – despite its reputation for wildlife – which means you can look forward to uninterrupted views and game sightings during your visit.
Mbali Mbali Katavi provides a comfortable and well-appointed base from which to head out on day and night game drives with expert guides. The general wildlife in Katavi is very good. Indeed, it is claimed that the park is the most bio-diverse in Africa and it certainly has a reputation for the heavyweight species – lion, elephant, buffalo, hippo and crocodile – which gather in increasing numbers at water sources in the dry season (about May to October).
A small camp with only eight suites, Mbali Mbali Katavi Lodge has a relaxed, subtle and informal atmosphere and would suit experienced safari travellers looking for an off-the-beaten-path destination that combines experience with comfort and convenience. The camp’s suites also include a four-sleeper unit – good news for adventurous families with older children – and modern touches include battery charging stations and complimentary Wi-Fi.
