Where to stay

Below you can see some of the wonderful places we have recommended for this journey.

Chada Katavi £££££

  • Tanzania
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

Chada Katavi is in the heart of Katavi National Park, said to be one of Africa’s best wildlife experiences. Filling the floor of the Rukwa Valley – a minor fault of the western great rift – the park spans over a million acres. From the blue escarpments, rivers run down through Tamarind, Fig and Albida forests to feed large floodplains. From its elevated vantage point on a peninsula that rises out of the miombo woodland, the camp is perfectly positioned for panoramic views over the grasslands of the floodplain. Chada Katavi offers shared open 4x4s and a dedicated guide for every group, plus there’s the flexibility of activities, game drives and walking with an armed guide.

Greystoke Mahale £££££

  • Tanzania
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

On a wide, golden beach along the eastern shores of Lake Tanganyika, sheltered by the dense forests of the Mahale Mountains, stands the tiny sanctuary of Greystoke Mahale. This spectacular and isolated setting is home to the world’s largest known population of chimpanzees, with approximately 1000 individuals inhabiting the Mahale Mountains National Park – Greystoke Mahale is within hiking distance of the 60 strong M-group, one of the most habituated groups in the world. As a result, it is one of the world’s premier locations for observing and photographing these great apes.
