Katavi National Park reviews

The best of western Tanzania

Views: 116 Visited: Oct 2018 Reviewed: May 10, 2019

Serengeti sees over 300,000 safarians each year; Katavi, about 1,000 (with half of them local Tanzanians). These two orders of magnitude have serious consequences. In the peak of the tourist season in Ngorongoro up to $80 US may descend onto a single poor cheetah, turning the whole experience into something like a zoo. In contrast, during our six days in Katavi, we would get excited if we saw another vehicle in the distance; cars being rarer and harder to spot than elephants or giraffes.
