About Katavi


Katavi is as dramatic as anywhere you'll ever see, and this is what we try to reflect. Life as an adventure, the world as a living, breathing thing: Man as a detail.

Katavi National Park remains one of the greatest wildlife experiences of Africa. Miles from anywhere, it has an almost mythical status and, it’s thought, a greater density of mammals than any other Tanzanian reserve. Rivers groan with hippopotamus and crocodiles, and massed on the plains are the last great herds of buffalo in East Africa, up to 1000 head.

Katavi belongs to the beasts of Africa, it always has. As if they were created here, and the primeval soup still runs through its veins. Almost everywhere you look there’s something grazing, bellowing, fighting, mating, hunting. Days on the hoof in Katavi can be wild beyond belief.

This is the place for the wildlife connoisseur, and the traveler who thinks the African bush can offer up no more surprises.

From December to February, Katavi is green and lush after the short rains, with great elephant and plains game sightings. It's a fantastic time for birding, and everywhere you look the plains are covered in wildflowers.

In May and June, it's still green and lush after the long rains, and this is a wonderful time of year to visit.

From July to October, the weather is getting hotter as the plains dry out. The rivers and pools are drying up which concentrates the game in specific areas making for amazing sightings of animals, particularly the crocs and hippos who congregate in their masses in the pools.
