Katavi is probably the wildest and most untouched reserve in the whole of Africa. It is the only remaining park in Africa that would best fit the description of Africa as it would have been 200 years ago, as described in the biographies of ancient white hunters and missionaries. It is the only remaining park in Africa where you are sure to have a million acres just to yourself. It just cannot get wilder!

Occupying an area of about 4,500sqkms- the 3rd largest in Tanzania, Katavi national park lies within the Rukwa rift, a shallow easterly extension of the main western rift valley that culminates in the extensive Lake Rukwa basin to the east of the national park. Katavi
is characterized by the dense cover of brachystegia woodland, which are transected by the Katuma and Kapapa rivers. Here one can enjoy the spectacular game viewing of wildlife.

There is hardly anyone who comes out of Katavi not happy with the experience. For us this is the No. 1 destination in Africa.
