Katavi National Park
- For the few intrepid souls who ever make it there, Katavi provides a thrilling taste of East Africa as it must have been a century ago.
- This is a true wilderness.
- The quintessential African landscape, a hypnotically featureless cover of untrammeled woodland that surely stands as East Africa’s best- kept game- viewing secrets.
- Tanzania’s third largest national park, Katavi sprawls in magnificent isolation across the country’s remote southwestern plains, within a truncated arm of the Rift valley that terminates in the brooding expense of Lake Rukwa.
- The predominant cover is tangled brachystegia woodland, trodden by substantial but elusive population of the localized Eland, Sable and Roan antelopes.
- The main game viewing focus is the Katuma River and associated Katavi and Chada floodplains.
- During the dry season, when the floodwaters retreat, that Katavi truly comes in its own. The Katuma reduced to a shallow, muddy trickle, forms the only source of drinking water for miles around, and the flanking floodplains support game concentration that defy belief.
