Accommodation at Katara Lodge

The lodge offers accommodation in eight luxurious thatched cottages on a beautiful stretch of hills overlooking the open savannah in a serene and relaxing atmosphere. Each spacious cottage was hand crafted using locally available materials and carved into the hillside by the Katara village community. The cottages combine wooden floors, grass thatched roofs and canvas that can be folded away for uninterrupted views of the park stretching out below. Our water is heated using solar thermal energy.

On a lucky day, you might be woken up by the trumpeting sound of the elephants in the savannah below.

We have 7 regular cottages and one family cottage.

The regular cottages have one large open sleeping and sitting area, with a double bed and a four poster star bed that can be wheeled out onto the veranda to sleep directly under the starlit African sky (only recommended during the dry season!). The bathrooms are luxuriously fitted – the romantic roll top bath, or the invigorating rain shower, provide a perfect way to unwind after a thrilling day on safari.

The family cottage has two separate bedrooms with a shared sitting area and bathroom. It has a double bed in one bedroom, and two beds (one is 3x6ft and the second 4x6ft)  in the other bedroom which can accommodate up to three small children. In addition, the family cottage comes with a small private outside sitting area with a swing couch and two hammocks.
