Katavi National Park
Katavi National Park is a remote and seldom
visited National Park in western Tanzania, Katavi
affords the modern day explorer an experience of
untouched African wilderness.
The valley grasslands support impressive herds of
buffalo, topi and zebra. The higher elevations and
miombo woodlands are home to sable, roan and other
Lion and elephant are common, and the waterways are
home to populations of hippos and crocs. Lakes Chada
and Katavi host extraordinary concentrations of
water birds, and the Rukwa valley in the south of
the Park is home to puku (an impala-sized antelope
related to the waterbuck) and southern reedbuck as
well as large numbers of other wildlife.
Katavi is accessible by road, but most visitors
fly in by private charter aircraft. A small, classic
tented camp provides the only suitable guest
accommodation in the Park.
