Description [ correction ]

Katavi National Park is one of Tanzania's most remote parks and a true hidden gem. It is only just beginning to gain recognition for its beauty and the quality of its game viewing. Katavi is remote in the extreme and with just 650 visitors a year, is the ultimate 'off the beaten track' safari destination. This park is for those who like to visit the most remote places away from the crowds. Visitors will probably see more lion than other visitors and Katavi has the highest concentrations of hippo in the world. It is also not unusual to see herds of over 1000 buffalo.
