Experience the rich wildlife of Katavi National Park
Katavi National Park remains one of the greatest wildlife experiences you will ever have in Africa. This remote and untouched park is located in western Tanzania. It forms a part of the Central African Rift system and is thought to have a greater density of mammals than any other Tanzanian reserve. This is the perfect place for your safari adventure.
There are over 50 species of mammal here. These include lion, leopard, elephant, wild dog and sable antelope, all of which run freely in the park. Head for the rivers which teem with hippopotamus and crocodile, while over on the endless plains some of the greatest East African herds of buffalo can be found. If you’re a keen bird-watcher, there are 370 species in the park to keep you entertained.
Katavi is named after Katabi, a spirit that lives near the lake according to locals. Many still come here to worship at the park’s sacred swamps, waterfalls, rivers and woodlands. And you too could be blessed with some stunning wildlife sights.
