Katavi Wildlife Camp
is located in the Katavi
area in the western
region of Tanzania
It is a medium specification tented option set in the very remote Katavi National Park, an area which claims to have the highest bio-density of any reserve in Africa and boasts some some unique and awesome animal sights, including vast herds of buffaloes, incredible hippo pools and tunnelling crocodiles. A real holy grail for safari aficionados, with extremely low visitor numbers. It is a comfortable and traditional camp, with eight guest tents, pleasantly hosted.
Activities include vehicle safari, walking safari and bush meals. Wildlife viewing is at its strongest during the Jun/Nov dry season, whilst the reserve remains a beautiful place to visit during the converse Dec/Mar green season.
The main potential downsides at Katavi Wildlife Camp are that it is relatively simple but still quite pricey and guests are often asked to share safari vehicles. The park itself has a relatively small sweet spot and is traversed by a significant road.UpsidesDownsidesSeasonsPricesTrips
