The Katavi National Park lies in the far western region of Tanzania, East Africa. This secluded area of Tanzania feels untouched giving visitors the impression of travelling back in time. Connecting the main floodplains, namely Chada, Ngolema, Katisunga and Katavi, it is a network of fragile seasonal rivers.
Many hippos are home in the pools, crocodiles live in the mud walls of the river banks, and elephants and buffalo are attracted to the rivers to quench their thirst.
