Chada Katavi is a well-established tented camp in the Katavi area of Western Tanzania. A traditional, seasonal camp, Chada Katavi is of the highest quality and enjoys a prime location of untouched beauty.
Set in the heart of Katavi National Park, this camp is about as remote as you can get and offers a superior standard of hosting and game viewing. The lengthy journey to get to such a secluded spot is worth it for the unbelievable game viewing, outstanding natural beauty and authentic experience that Chada camp provides.
Known as one of the wildest areas on earth, it comes as no shock that Katavi offers some of the best game viewing. Run by Nomad Tanzania, a long established safari operation with a reputation for excellent safari guiding, guests can enjoy both game drives and bush walks in this untouched wilderness. Day and night game drives are taken in 4x4 vehicles with professional guides and promise viewings of great herds of Buffalo, hippos, leopards, crocodiles and elephants. With extremely low visitor numbers and the opportunity to venture off road this is one of the finest safari experiences.
An exclusive camp, there are only six spacious safari tents that are simple and traditional in style. Light and airy, with large double beds and sophisticated furnishings, all the Meru tents have wooden front facing verandahs and ensuite bathrooms with safari style bucket showers. Guests are also encouraged to walk out to their own fly camp and spend a night under the stars.
The experience is not suited to very young children and therefore the camp welcomes children 12 years old and over. This allows the whole family to participate in the bush walks and game drives and these can be adapted to suit the interests and attention span of the children. Meal times and menus can be adapted to suit children and babysitting services are available.
Conscious to fit in with the natural world around it Chada Katavi is by no means decadent, but a stylishly simple bushcamp that looks after your every need. For couples or older families looking for a truly authentic experience that stays off the beaten track, this would make an excellent choice.

Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair

Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
Fiona and Kevin
