National Park is a very remote conservation area located in the Western Region
, well over 700km from the nearest international airport at Kilimanjaro and Dar es Salaam.
This is a fabulous savanna safari reserve, a real collector's item. The wildlife viewing during the Jun/Oct dry season is very rich, especially the incredible hippo pools and tunnelling crocodiles. But it is the remoteness of the place which really wins the day, coupled with extremely low visitor numbers and some truly excellent safari camps.
The main potential downsides of Katavi are the extremely high costs, the relatively small core wildlife area and the fact that the reserve is traversed by a significant dirt transit road.UpsidesDownsidesSeasonsAccommodationTrips
