Life changing experiences
at Chada

Prepare to have your mind blown amidst some of the greatest concentration if large mammals in the world.

Fly-camping at Chada

Sometimes the simplest things in life are the most enriching for the soul. Fly-camping is a wonderful surprise, that brings so much to your safari experience. Escape from main camp and sleep-out in the real middle of nowhere.

In the rivers

We see crocodiles and hippopotami everywhere here. As the season progresses and the rivers dwindle, crocs skulk into mud caves or pile themselves brazenly under shady trees. The hundreds of hippos are forced together in ever smaller wallows. Tensions erupt. Sometimes only the strongest of them survive.

Bush walks into untouched wilderness

The wide-open spaces of the Chada flood plains with extra wide-angle visibility make for a unique brand of rambling. At times you can feel impossibly insignificant against backdrops of golden grass, distant herds of buffalo and piercing blue skies. Yet again, we redefine the meaning of a walk in the park.

Free wheeling

Very few people or vehicles ever come to stay in this park. The park rules, too, are more relaxed, so our cars are how we like them best - fully open to the air. All this brings with it a huge dose of almost old-fashioned safari freedom, and a special sense of intimacy with this extraordinary natural environment.

Picnics on the plains

Why head for cover, when the open-air is so good? We love the eccentricity of rounding a bend in the river to find a fully laid breakfast table and steaming cups of coffee, in front of a pool of hippopotamus. While sharing picnic lunch, as we watch elephants crossing the plains, is as high octane as dining can be.

Western Tanzania safaris

Our Western Tanzania camps bring a safari of extraordinary contrasts. Katavi is about remote, expeditionary safaris. Mahale takes you further off the map, to meet our chimpanzee cousins. Put simply, this is the pinnacle of life-changing safaris.

Review for lamai

Stunning Experience

Lamai is located in a spectacular part of the Serengeti. Most beautiful landscape we have ever seen in Africa. The rooms are done in traditional style and are nestled into a rocky outcrop above the plains. You can often see the elephants, and hear the lions roaring, from your room. Overall a stunni...

Loved Lamai Serengeti Camp

We loved our stay at the Lamai Serengeti Camp. Every detail is so well thought of, in every aspect of our stay — from the bush drives to the amenities of the room, and even as we said good bye! Thank you again to the staff, you guys were so warm and happy and made our trip so much fun!
