Tour Overview

Indulge the spirit of the adventurer in you as you experience a classical safari in one of East Africa’s most isolated and untouched wild places. Home to some of Africa’s largest herds of buffalo, Katavi boasts a wonderful array of habitats from reeded floodplains to open grasslands, dense forests, clear rivers, and seasonal lakes. Explore the magnificent landscapes in search of wildlife in a 4×4 safari vehicle or set off on foot to discover the finer details of the bush

. Opt to spend a night out beneath the stars on an exhilarating fly camping adventure and listen to tales of the legendary huntsman Katabi, who the park is named after, as you relax around a blazing bonfire. A true taste of wild Africa, this adventure is the ideal option for seasoned African travelers looking for an authentic experience and out of the ordinary.

Highlights of this Itinerary 

  • Excellent game viewing opportunities in the grass plains of the renowned Katavi National Park
  • Watching crocodiles and hippos surface in the seasonal Lake Chada
  • Lazy afternoons out on the waters of Lake Tanganyika
  • Friendly encounters with soul-tickling personalities

Day 1

Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will be warmly welcomed by a member from our andBeyond team who will accompany you to Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge which is approximately 1-hour drive. Spend your 1 night stay at Arusha Coffee Lodge in a Plantation Room with an ensuite bathroom. Your stay includes breakfast.

Day 2 -4

A member of our team will collect you from Arusha Coffee Lodge and drive you to Arusha Airport for your scheduled flight to Southern Katavi Airstrip. Katavi National Park in the far west of Tanzania is somewhere that even today, few people have been lucky enough to visit.

Perhaps because of this, it feels untouched, almost like traveling back in time. Explore and unwind during your 3-night stay at Chada Katavi in a Tent with an ensuite bathroom. Your stay includes all meals, safari activities; Game Drives, Walking Safaris, Fly camping; scheduled road transfers to/from Katavi (Ikuu) airstrip, drinks (excluding champagne and premium wines), and laundry.

Day 5-8

After a mouth-watering breakfast, you will be transferred to the airstrip for your scheduled flight departing from Katavi Airstrip to Mahale (Ikuu) Airstrip. From the Airstrip, you will then take a boat transfer to Greystoke Mahale.

Delight in your 4-night stay at Greystoke Mahale in an Open Fronted Banda with open-air bathrooms. Your stay includes all meals, activities on a shared basis (chimp trekking, boat trips, deep water swims, forest walks, and Village visits), return boat transfers (Mahale airstrip), drinks (except champagne premium wines), laundry, catch & release fishing and park camping fees.

Day 9

After breakfast, you will be transferred back to Mahale (Ikuu) airstrip for your scheduled charter flight to Arusha Airport where you will continue with your onward arrangements.
