Chada fly-camping: Our full report

All year

In a place as big as Katavi National Park, it's possible to travel long distances exploring many areas and still not see any other vehicles. To help reach the more distant corners of Katavi, the Chada Camp's team can arrange one- or two-night fly-camping trips. These are often combined with walking safaris to help you to appreciate the sheer scale and remoteness of this park.

A few members of staff will go ahead to set up the camp, which consists of small dome tents of mosquito netting with comfy mattresses, proper quilts and pillows, a (hot) bucket shower and a long-drop toilet.

You'll return from your drive or walk to a cold drink, a roaring fire and a first-class dinner under the stars in one of Africa's most remote locations. Note that this is available (for a supplement) as part of a trip including Chada Camp; fly-camping in Katavi should always be arranged in advance.
