Adventure Safari Katavi to Lake Tanganyika - 8 day

Ride Quad bikes from Katavi to Lake Tanganyika - the only trails here are animal trails, then go on a kayak and diving safari at Lake Tanganyika. Bring your sense of adventure!

A safari for adrenaline junkies covering areas probably untouched since the days of the great explorers from the majestic Katavi National Park to the shores of Lake Tanganyika, undoubtedly one of the most atmospheric and remote destinations in Africa.

This safari works well as an add on to Ruaha National Park with flights from Ruaha-Katavi on Mondays and Thursdays.

We recommend 3 nights on safari in Ruaha then 3 nights in Katavi before starting the adventure safari outlined below. Please note this safari is going to very remote areas and a certain level of fitness is required, on the quad bike section you will be rough camping. But its also a lot of fun!

Monday – Depart from Katavi National Park on quad bikes (self drive, suitable for two people). Overnight in a fully equipped fly camp and enjoy a wonderful dinner in the wild.

Tuesday – Continue the ride of your life on the quad bikes arriving at Lake Shore Lodge on the banks of Lake Tanganyika. Take in the incredible sunset and overnight in one of the luxurious beach chalets.

Wednesday – Half day dive/kayak excursion to a nearby island and back for lunch on Lake Shore Terrace with the afternoon to relax.

Thursday – Begin your dive/kayak safari. Spend the night in your own private campsite in one of the pristine, sandy bays on the lakeshore.

Friday – Another day of awesome diving/kayaking, picnic lunch on one of the remote beaches and dinner served around a fire at the campsite.

Saturday – Today, enjoy more diving/kayaking and return to the Lodge for a fabulous dinner.

Sunday – A day of relaxation or more activity – you choose. End off your stay at the Lake with a sunset cruise on a traditional dhow.

Monday – Drive back to Katavi to meet your flight back to Dar es Salaam or Arusha
