The only other camp in Katavi of real note, Chada Camp, as the name suggests, looks out onto the Chada floodplain and is set at the other end of the Katuma River systems to Katavi Wildlife camp. Established as a simple tented camp, Chada Camp does offer something a little different to its neighbour in that it has the feel of a satellite camp, of being more exploratory in its design. We would still opt for Katavi Wildlife ourselves, but Chada definitely has its place.


One thing that the Nomads cooperative have firmly built into all of their camps is the emphasis on wildlife. All of their camps, Sand Rivers, Greystoke Mahale, Nomads Serengeti, are unique in their design and have tried to incorporate whichever habitat they are located in into the features. This is no exception in Chada Camp. The simple design of the tents, with the small external walkway to the loos, is in keeping with the exploratory nature of the park itself and it really adds to the experience.


The camp, as with many camps in seasonal areas across Africa, is broken down when the rains arrive in November and so has a fairly short usage life. This means that, instead of plumbing and other more permanent features, they have decided to pare the camp back to basics with long drop loos and bucket showers...in all honesty, if you have never used these before, there is absolutely no difference to normal....if, like me, you are a Londoner, you may actually find this to be an improvement!


The game in the area and the park is, without doubt, some of the best in Africa and, taking in the great service and food in camp, this is a superb little option.
