About Nomads Chada Katavi Tented Camp

Lodge Details


A luxurious and remote tented camp.


Nomads Chada Katavi luxury tented camp is set on a wooded promontory overlooking the plains of Katavi in Western Tanzania. It’s remoteness means this is one of the least visited parks in Tanzania, indeed it is said to be one of the wildest places on earth.

Accommodation & Facilities

Hidden in the shade of the acacia trees that flank it are six guest tents furnished with fine wooden furniture, woven rugs and bedspreads with crisp white Egyptian cottons. The tents are large, romantic and airy and the bathrooms are ‘bush deluxe’, with steaming-hot showers. Each tent commands superb views over the plains. With open camp fires at night and over-friendly elephants wandering through the camp, this is a great spot for a Tanzanian wilderness wildlife safari.


Come dinner time, the mess tent is nothing short of splendid, with silverware gleaming and glasses shining in the lamplight whilst guests dine on delicious food and good wine.


There are no limits to game viewing in this area and no other jeep around! Game drives can go for miles or sit tight and watch the drama unfold across the floodplains in front of the camp.

Nights out can be spent in lightweight fly camps - bedrolls unrolled under mosquito nets below borassus palms. Fabulous bush cuisine is served in your remote hide-away, and the bucket shower - with piping hot water - leaves you feeling fresh and ready for dinner under the stars.

Walking safaris take you even deeper into Katavi´s untamed world. The game is unbelievable with sightings of elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, crocodiles and hippo amongst many others.

Child Policy

Children under 8 years old are not accepted.
