Days 4 – 13
Spend the rest of your time thoroughly exploring everything that this remote and truly wild park has to offer.
Katavi has the largest herds of buffalo found in Africa, reminiscent of the Great Serengeti Migration. Katavi National Park consists of a series of secret floodplains that open up in front of you as you arrive through their woodland fringes. It will almost feel like you have the whole place to yourself as Katavi has very few visitors a year.
Katavi Wildlife Camp has 8 guest tents with King Sized beds, including 5 doubles, and 3 twins set on platforms under woven palm thatch. Our tents, luxurious in size and furnishings with ensuite bathrooms (flush toilets and hot showers), are cunningly set back in amongst the trees that line the floodplain, providing both shade and camouflage in the prime game viewing area of the park, where the wildlife are unaware of your presence.
After a fantastic safari you will check out of Katavi Wildlife Camp and you will then be transferred to the airstrip for your return flight back to Dar es Salaam – Overnight at Southern Sun where you can relax next to the Botanical Gardens before your departure.
Transfer back to the airport for your return flight at 0835. Arrive into LHR at 1545. Have a safe trip home.
