Katavi National Park is recently extended southward to cover some 4500 sq km the main features of Tanzania’s third largest park, located about 40 km south east of Mpanda town, Lake Katavi with its vast floodplains and Katuma River. The park is distinguished for its Miombo woodland and is home to Buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and Zebra. Antelope Species include eland, impala, topi, red tail and blue monkeys. The area is heavily forested making it an unsuitable habitat for carnivores and safe for walking safaris. Bird watchers will be richly rewarded here.
