KATAVI NATIONAL PARK – Tanzania - Isolated, untrammeled and seldom visited, Katavi is a true wilderness, providing the few intrepid souls who make it there with a thrilling taste of Africa as it must have been a century ago. Tanzania’s third largest national park, it lies in the remote southwest of the country, within a truncated arm of the Rift Valley that terminates in the shallow, brooding expanse of Lake Rukwa. Katavi National Park is the heart of one of the biggest and richest wildlife areas in Tanzania, the Katavi-Rukwa ecosystem. It encompasses the second largest wildlife population of Tanzania (after the bigger national parks of Serengeti and Ruaha). It is during the dry season, when the floodwaters retreat, that Katavi truly comes into its own. The Katuma, reduced to a shallow, muddy trickle, forms the only source of drinking water for miles around, and the flanking floodplains support game concentrations that defy belief. An estimated 4,000 elephants might converge on the area, together with several herds of 1,000-plus buffalo, while an abundance of giraffe, zebra, impala and reedbuck provide easy pickings for the numerous lion prides and spotted hyena clans whose territories converge on the floodplains.

RUAHA NATIONAL PARK – TANZANIA - Ruaha national park is a wilderness area which combines game viewing and a fascinating landscape. The park is rich in plants and animals such as Greater Kudu which cannot be found in any other national park. The park boasts an almost untouched and unexplored ecosystem, making visitors’ safari experience very unique. The Great Ruaha River, as well as the Mwagusi, Jongomero and Mzombe Rivers, are the life line of the park. During dry season, these rivers become the main source of water for wildlife. Waterbuck, impala and the world’s most southerly Grant’s gazelle risk their lives for a sip of water – the shores of the Ruaha are a permanent hunting ground for lion, leopard, cheetah, jackal, hyena and the rare and endangered African wild dog. The water is also important habitat for hippopotamus, fish and crocodiles.
