Katavi National Park
Depart Arusha airport this morning on a 3.5 hour flight to Western Tanzania – this includes pick-ups / drop-offs & a short fuel stop.
On arrival at Katavi National Park you'll be met by a guide who will drive you to Chada Katavi camp for your 4 night stay, with great game-viewing and a picnic lunch en route.
Drive out into wildest Katavi, potentially witnessing herds of buffalo, elephants, other plains game and big cats. Follow the river to see the podsof hippos who congregate in the pools and mudholes, plus plenty of crocodiles.
You will also get the opportunity for a walk, exploring the edge of the plains on foot. Also spend a night out fly-camping under the stars, drive from camp on an afternoon game drive, ending up at a fly-camping site for sundowners and a 3-course meal.
Greystoke Mahale Camp
Depart camp for a short (one hour) flight to Mahale. On landing, board the dhow which will take you down the lake - with lunch on the way - to Greystoke Mahale camp (approx. 1.5 hour boat ride).
On arrival at Greystoke the managers will orientate you around the camp, and explain about the chimpanzee trekking. The afternoon is at leisure to either go fishing, enjoy a short forest walk, or relax on the beach.
