Katavi National Park in the far west of Tanzania is somewhere that even today, few people have been lucky enough to visit.
Katavi is remote and feels untouched, almost like travelling back in time. The park centres on a series of wide flood plains, blond with waist high grass in the early dry season, green and flooded like a mini Okavango after the rains.
Connecting the main flood plains is a network of fragile seasonal rivers that form the focus of the game viewing for which Katavi is renowned during the dry season.
In the late dry season, there are few places that offer such a raw and wild experience as Katavi, which is truly one of the most exciting game parks in Africa.
