Katavi Wildlife Camp is an exclusive tented camp set amongst trees that boasts a view fronting a river and vast plains from which one can view large herds of wildlife. From its well placed location on the Katisunga plains, it is easily accessible to Lake Katavi and Lake Chada. One can therefore enjoy viewing wildlife from your private verandah or on game drives.

Katavi Wildlife Camp is located on the banks of the Katuma river in Katavi national park.

Lounge, Dining and Bar
At Katavi Wildlife Camp the main lodge (banda) is a two storey structure with the lounge enjoying a high elevation that allows for game watching over the Katisunga plains and watching the wildlife quenching their thirst from the Katuma river. In the evenings as the sun sets the game moves closer to the camp to take shelter among the trees that surround the camp. There is a bar, Cosy seating area, small library and dining area that are all under a large thatch roof that is open sided.
