Katavi enjoys a 6 month dry period from June through to end October. As the park dries out the animals are concentrated into smaller areas contributing to the spectacularly large herds. From November to February the park turns green and lush, still with excellent viewing and better than ever bird populations.
The camp is open from the 1st June through to the end of February. The main reason for closing at this time is that the soil is black cotton which is very challenging when wet.
Katavi Wildlife Camp is set amongst the trees that fringe the Katisunga plains. From your vantage point either on your tents veranda or from the upper viewing lounge you can join the predators watching the plains game during the day. Then anticipate the excitement of the predators hunting their dinner as the game move back to the trees in the evenings.
Katavi consists of 6 large Meru-style tents, overlooking the plain; each built on a raised wooden platform, and sheltered from the midday sun by a traditionally thatched roof. Each tent is en-suite, and has it’s own large veranda with hammock and chairs. There are four double tents and two twin tents, and all have a safe.
