"Chada Camp"

3 nights Arrived 24 Sep 2007
"By chance we were the only guests here for the three days. The whole experience was wonderful with expert guides and great staff and managers. This was the most memorable experiance of our lives.

At Katavi, by some fluke of the booking system, we found ourselves the only people staying there for the three days. At first we thought this might be a problem but in fact it was a total privilege. We were treated to the undivided assistance of Silvanus Mbise who proved to be a truly wonderful guide and more than that, companion for our time at the camp. The other staff and Richard and Anna, as the camp managers, were also without fault. We were made to feel really welcome the whole time we were there despite the fact that it was Richard's last three days in charge and he undoubtedly had other things to be arranged.

The tented accommodation was better than we had expected and one got used to the fact that water was in short supply here and having a shower whilst being watched by a monkey was a new experience!

We have to mention the food: how your chef managed to produce food that would be appreciated in a good restaurant anywhere in the middle of Katavi was inexplicable.

The range and extent of the wildlife that we were shown was awe inspiring and I will never forget Silvanus's tracking of a leopard from a kill-site to the animal lying on a tree branch just above our heads. He managed to get the Landcruiser into areas that I don't think I could have got a bicycle!

All-in-all Katavi was an absolutely unforgettable superb experience due, in no small part, to your great staff and managers.

"Walking at Chada"

7 nights Arrived 13 Aug 2007
"We all ended up loving Chada after a dicey start when it became clear that our request for a walking safari had been transmitted/interpreted as fly camping by jeep. After the problem became evident itwas amazing to see how everyone threw themselves into the task of 'making it happen' even though it was evidently not something that had been done before (at least not in the way we envisaged it) and entailed a complete up-ending of the entire camp routine and bringing in a support manager while Richard was with us walking.

Eventually we ende up with three memorable days walking which will stay with us for a long time.

It's clear that Chada is a great area for walking and that with the right support anything from a few days to a couple of weeks could be achieved. Many people I talked to who visited Chada some time ago remember it for the walking. I really recommend that this should be undertaken as part of the normal activities offered from now on and that the infrastructure should be revised to accommodate this.

Either that or the website needs changing to avoid major misunderstanding! Well done to Richard and Anna for coping with us!" See all these reviews: 14n in Tanzania; 1n in Zanzibar
