Absolutely superb. Hardly anyone is there and you are completely at one with nature, it's peaceful and full of hundreds of animals!

One word Remote! This is Tanzaias hardest to o to national park and yet offers the best number of wildlife. I did a 6 day journey with train road and frankly should have flown out. If you can fly in and out. Loads of animals you ll be freaked!stayed at chada camp but my friends Fox family owners of ruaha river lodge now have a camp here

Long driving distances from game drive areas to camp! Flamingos and lions were very special here, but also a lot of fine birds.

A great place, like Ruaha, with great wildlife viewing. Actualy fantastic lions viewing in some part of it (sorry i won t say exacly where) when I visited in october 2009. We also saw hyenas, elephants, lots of giraffes, large herds of buffalos, diferent species of antelopes, crocs, birdlife etc.

In my opinion, Katavi national park is not a very good park as other national park of Tanzania. Though it's very large area. Also it is very far from Dar es salaam. And the rods are not good to go there.

4/5

Also a remote park, Katavi was fantastic, with its small river along which wildlife was concentrating. Well-known for its hippos and crocs.
