When to visit
Katavi enjoys a 6 month dry period from June through to end October. As the park dries out the animals are concentrated into smaller areas contributing to the spectacularly large herds. From November to February the park turns green and lush, still with excellent viewing and better than ever bird populations.
The camp is open from the 1st June through to the end of February. The main reason for closing at this time is that the soil is black cotton which is very challenging when wet.
