This 3-day Katavi Safari offers a diverse and rewarding game viewing experience, driving along rivers teeming with crocodiles, seasonal lakes, and plains inhabited by an abundance of game animals. Katavi National Park boasts an exceptional volume of wildlife, surpassing many other Tanzanian parks. Research supports that Katavi has a higher concentration of animals than the renowned Ngorongoro crater. Despite its wealth of wildlife, Katavi receives a limited number of visitors, making it an ideal destination for a honeymoon safari.

While on game drive during this 3 days katavi safari you will encounter large prides of lions, immense herds of buffalo, and gatherings of hippos and crocodiles unlike anywhere else in Africa. Other frequently spotted animals in Katavi include zebras, topis, giraffes, leopards, hyenas, and waterbucks. The rare African wild dog is also occasionally seen in the park.

While the cost of a Katavi Safari may be higher compared to northern Tanzania safari destinations, it is precisely this reason that attracts fewer travelers, resulting in an uncrowded experience unlike the popular parks in the north. Additionally, there are a limited number of accommodation options available, providing quality lodging at a reasonable price.
