Join the lions observing the thousand head herds of buffalo on the Katuma Plains – the park for the African connoisseur.

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.

Getting there

Safari Air Link ( run a bi weekly schedule to Katavi National Park departing from Ruaha and return through to Dar and Zanzibar.  The flights only operate on Mondays and Thursdays.  There is also an option to fly in from Arusha, also on Mondays and Thursdays.
By road, Katavi is accessed via Sumbawanga, but the roads are not in good condition and the drive can take a lot longer than anticipated.
