Katavi National Park

Written by 

One of Africa’s greatest secrets

“A true wilderness, teeming with game, evoking for those few intrepid souls who make it there a thrilling taste of Africa as it must have been a century ago...”

Said to have the greatest density of wildlife of any park in Africa, Katavi is one of the continent’s best-kept secrets. Located miles off-the-beaten track in the southwest of the country, in a shallow arm of the Rift Valley, Katavi is Tanzania’s third-largest national park. The brooding expanse of Lake Rukwa (the largest body of water entirely within Tanzania) makes up its southern border. Utterly remote (some 3-5 days drive from Arusha or Dar es Salaam) it receives fewer than 1,000 visitors a year.

However, for those hardy souls that make it there, the journey is more than worthwhile. Practically inaccessible during the rains, Katavi is best visited in the dry season when sightings of lion, elephant, thousand-strong buffalo herds and large pods of hippo are prevalent.
