Katavi National Park

Katavi National Park is one of the upcoming tourist attractions in Tanzania and has become part of the new western circuit. Found deep into western Tanzania it is unspoiled and untamed; undoubtedly in a league of its own.


It is not uncommon to see herds of thousands of elephant and buffalo, yet it attracts around 300 visitors per annum. As Mahale and Gombe, Katavi is remote and ideal for those who prefer game viewing in peace and solitude. This undiscovered wilderness is awash with plains game including elephant, leopard, giraffe, lion and zebra. This is a place for the wildlife connoisseur to see sable, roan antelope and puku.

Birdwatching is also excellent, with over 400 species recorded. Walking is permitted with special permission, which can be very exciting. Like all gems it will not be long before you have to share this with fellow travellers so we suggest you think now rather than later.
