Location: Chada Katavi is in Katavi National Park in the far west of Tanzania. The camp is set beneath shady trees at the edge of the Chada plain, a wild and remote setting. There are twice weekly flights from Arusha, currently operating on Monday and Thursday, to Ikuu, the nearest airstrip to the camp. The flight takes about 3 hours.

Rooms: There are 6 safari tents with adjoining en-suite bathrooms, separated from the bedroom by a zipped flap. These have bucket showers, for which hot water is supplied on request, and eco-flush toilets. Gauze windows keep out insects but let in the light and breeze. Each tent has a private veranda at the front for secluded relaxation and views of the plain and game.

Activities: These include game drives in open-sided 4x4 vehicles, guided bush walks, bird watching and fly camping. Fly camping is subject to availability and needs to be booked and paid for in advance.

Dining: Meals are eaten communally.
