KATAVI HAS TWO VASTLY DIFFERENT FACES.

Our dry season, which runs from June through to end October, gets more and more intense as the temperatures rise.  As the season progresses, the river - life blood to so many of its animals - starts to dry up; the pools and watering holes fill up with pods of hippo almost stacking up on top of each other to try and get into the water.  The savanna grass is golden and the sunsets are dusty, the heat shimmers like a mirage over the plain. This is Katavi as raw and real as it can possibly be, and when Chada comes into its own.

The rains usually come mid November and go through until early June. Katavi then undergoes a complete transformation.  Almost as soon as the first rains hit the ground, everything goes green; long green and lush grasses sprout from what was just dry and cracked earth. The rivers flow again, the pools overflow and there is space for all. It's a birders paradise as all the migratory birds flock back. Grass as high as an elephants eye, but there is still so much to see.  Chada closes for the main part of the rainy season.

It works great with Mahale!

TOGETHER WE MUST PROTECT OUR WILDERNESS

AS A COMPANY THAT WAS BORN FROM ITS LOVE OF WILDERNESS, WE TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ITS PROTECTION.

Nomad was founded on the belief that for us to make a meaningful contribution to the conservation of our wildlife, we must also take care of the needs of our people, making sure that it is them that feel the benefit from keeping wild places safe. In a normal season we put our safaris to work. We make use of our reach and logistics; planes, cars, camps and teams, to reach deep into some of the most remote parts of Tanzania with health and education outreach. We donate safaris to auctions to raise funds, all of the proceeds from our camp shops goes to our projects, and all of this is managed by a full time CSR Manager and supported by our camp teams. This all, for the moment, has had to stop.

 

While we are in lockdown, our wild places are quietly facing their own crisis.

 

As a community who love Africa's wilderness, we must urgently turn our attention to the pressing issues facing our National Parks, wildlife, and remote communities. We need your help to make sure we have a wilderness for us to return to when this is all over. We all have a responsibility to look after it, as well as the people whose lives are so intertwined with its protection.

 

We've set up a fund.

 

Asante sana, thank you, for your support.

It means the world to us and we can't wait to have you back on safari with us soon.
