Day by Day Itinerary

Day 04-06

Katavi

Enjoy three full days of game viewing activities. When people think of being on safari, most of them don’t know how wild it can, and should feel. Some of them are lucky enough to find out – in Katavi – which makes other places look literally like a walk in the park. It certainly seems that way. You walk a lot, and drive across the enormous National Park. The game is everywhere. Great families of elephant, huge herds of buffalo, pods of hippo, lion, leopard, hyena, fabulous birds, all competing for space, food and water. Katavi rotates during the course of a year from being a rampant water world, rivers wide and brimming to – as the dry season moves towards October – a dry bush desert, where the rivers have dwindled and only a few fresh water springs support a huge competitive biomass, concentrating the game.
