This Tanzania Safari Getaway lets you discover 2 of the country’s lesser known parks: Katavi and Mahale Mountains National Park. It was designed for 2 couples from Australia who wanted to see the untouched, remote western circuit with this one of a kind experience that gives the perfect blend of safari adventures and luxurious relaxation.
They arrived at Kilimanjaro International Airport, where they met their transfer flight to Katavi. They stayed 3 nights at Nomad’s Chada Katavi, a 5-star tented camp in the remote Katavi National Park. The game viewing here is like nothing else, as the small camp is designed to blend into its surroundings. They enjoyed close-up elephant and monkey sightings as the animals walked right up to the camp, and ate delicious breakfasts in the bush each morning overlooking a waterhole frequented by hippos.
During their stay, they explored the remote and pristine park in the mornings with their expert guide, and spent their afternoons on guided bush walks for an unforgettable safari experience. They were treated to scrumptious food and wine and spent the nights gazing up at the stars in their cozy, tented rooms with netted roofs.
Continuing their Tanzania Safari Getaway, they took a short flight to Mahale Mountain National Park, where they spent the remainder of their journey at the secluded Greystoke Mahale, a 5-star camp on the shore of Lake Tanganyika. Upon arrival, they freshened up and enjoyed a delicious dinner before taking a sundowner cruise in a traditional wooden dhow.
Their 4 nights at Greystoke Mahale provided the ultimate relaxation and outdoor adventure. They spent a day chimp trekking in the nearby forest to see these remarkably human creatures in their natural habitat, followed by a romantic candlelit dinner on the beach to unwind after their exciting day. For the remainder of their stay, they enjoyed kayaking on the lake, hiking in the mountains, and more, retreating each night to their luxurious, private rooms with gorgeous views over the lake.
Finally, their Tanzania Safari Getaway came to an end. After a leisurely breakfast on the beach, they were transferred to the airstrip to begin their journey home.
