Palahala Luxury camp****
Located in Katavi National Park, a remote national park in southwest Tanzania, Palahala Camp is a permanent tented luxury safari camp which affords the perfect opportunity to experience a wildlife-rich, wonderfully tourist-free part of Africa during your Tanzania safari. Opened in 2005, Palahala, which means “sable antelope” in Swahili, sits on the banks of the Kapapa River, an advantageous location particularly during the dry season.
Accommodation : Palahala’s eight spacious tents are octagonal-shaped and measure 90 square metres. Each tent is furnished with king-size beds, the finest linens, and goose down quilts, and includes verandas that overlook the bush and river. NEW in 2013: We have installed plumbing at Katavi, so each tent now features solar heated hot running water. Old-fashioned hurricane lamps light your way for your short walk from the camp’s main tent. Each tent also features a writing desk and free daily laundry service.
Dining : The quality and variety of dishes our chefs can prepare in the middle of the bush will astound you. Experienced chefs create mouth-watering delicacies using fresh Tanzanian produce, meats and fish. Delectable meals are served in a number of intimate locations with uninterrupted views of the river. Enjoy a hearty breakfast in camp on our viewing deck, to the raucous cries of fish eagles, before heading out on an early morning game drive. Lunch is provided in the bush, and there are always snacks and drinks on the vehicles. And what would a safari experience be without the requisite afternoon tea and cakes? You will experience late afternoon sundowners in amazingly beautiful locales, and enjoy romantic, torch-lit dinners in the boma, complete with campfire and a full sky of stars.
