Katavi National Park


... is a very remote conservation area located in the Western Region of Tanzania, well over 700km from the nearest international airport at Kilimanjaro and Dar es Salaam.

This is a fabulous savannah 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.
