Katavi National Park is located in the remote west of Tanzania and is the perfect place to witness animals, including elephants, giraffe and hippo, in the wildest wilderness. There are no humans for hundreds of miles and aside from at the lodge, you are unlikely to encounter anyone. The park’s main features are the enormous floodplains around Lake Katavi in the north and palm-fringed Lake Chada and Katuma River with scattered woodland in the south. The lakes support enormous groups of hippos, crocodiles and over 400 bird species but it is the dry season that brings Katavi to life as great clouds of dust rise from the 3,000 swift-moving buffaloes!
