Foxes Katavi Wildlife Camp, Tanzania
Join the lions observing the thousand head herds of buffalo on the Katuma Plains – the park for the African connoisseur.
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.
The camp is located where the Katuma river drains the Katisunga plain and the two-storey main banda is perfectly located to maximise viewing of the daily movements of game between grazing and drinking from the Katuma river.
