Katavi Safari Travel Tips

Book well in advance

Katavi is a very remote location where it’s possible to enjoy wildlife with very few other visitors. During our visit, there were a maximum of 2 or 3 jeeps in the same site (including ours), meaning more photo opportunities, no rush and more importantly, minimizing the possible stress for the animals.

This exclusivity is due to several reasons. Katavi is not easy to reach: you have to take a charter flight and land on a dirty air strip. Besides, Katavi has only 3 lodges and 1 campsite available for their visitors. Far from being a downside, this is something that makes the trip more unique, special and for sure, exclusive.

Make sure you book it well in advance as otherwise you can miss it!

When to go

The best moment to visit Katavi is from June to September. Keep in mind that unlike other parks in Tanzania, you won’t get to see the migration here, nor the rhino if you’re looking to tick off the Big 5 from your list!
