This 9-day safari combines two of the most incredible and off-the-beaten-path wildlife destinations in Tanzania to leave you with indelible memories and plenty of stories. The journey begins at Chada Katavi Camp in western Tanzania’s Katavi National Park. This little-known and even less-visited gem offers tremendous big game sightings in a wilderness so primal it would seem as if you had stepped back in time to when the great herds roamed.
After your fill of elephants, buffalo and big cats, the experience moves to the unique Greystoke Mahale Camp, set on a golden beach next to Lake Tanganyika where close-up encounters with our closest animal relatives await. Trails in Mahale's canopied forests take you to troops of habituated chimpanzees while your guides point out other primates, birds and butterflies along the way. Suitable for second-time-around safari visitors and those after a genuine safari adventure, this is a journey that will connect you to nature in a manner you have never experienced before.
