Katavi National Park

Katavi National Park

Katavi National Park is in the western area of Tanzania. It is an untouched area. There are dense waterways, thick reeds and houses varied birdlife and hippos. The forest canopies include herds of elephants and buffaloes.

Katavi presents a true wilderness offering a thrilling taste of Africa. It is the third-largest national park. You can choose a safari to go and enjoy the spectacular game viewing in the dry season.

Places of attractions

Game viewing

The Game viewing is plentiful. There are predators in plenty and it includes leopard, lion, wild dog, and cheetah. The Katuma River in the dry season becomes muddy pools as it dries and here hippos cram that there are terrifying fights among the males.

Walking Safaris

Walking safaris is enjoyable and there will be a guided walking fee for a group to be given. The guide comes like an armed ranger and includes paying for bus camping for each person. Walking is permitted throughout the park. You can opt for a short or long walk. The road leading to Lake Katavi is a good route for walking and no need for a vehicle. Walking safaris are not allowed by top-end camps aiming to keep the guests safe.

Riverside Camp

This is the right place to arrange safaris. Even if a person is not available, the staff will escort you and no worries as they know the park like the back of their hand.

Self-drive Safaris

The park does not give vehicles on hire, but there is a charge for a 4WD as the US $200 a day featuring a pop-up roof. Taking a driver or a guide paying $20 ensures the safety and best viewing experience.
