After arriving in Tanzania you will have an early morning departure from Arusha via the Serengeti (dependent on schedule) and Tabora to refuel. Arrive into Katavi in time for a late lunch and a siesta in your spacious en-suite tent.


Head out early morning in one of our kayaks and have your first cup of coffee out in the middle of the lake or enjoy a relaxed morning in camp before boarding the dhow and heading back to the airstrip to board your plane back to Arusha and onwards.
