The Katavi National Park is a relatively remote park, in Western Tanzania - and has relatively few visitors compared to the more well-known Tanzanian safari parks. In the dry season large numbers of hippos congregate in the shrinking waterholes and rivers (the smell is quite horrendous!). There are also large numbers of elephants (we had them walking through the camp on several occasions), as well as lions, giraffe, crocodile and vervet monkeys. A wide variety of birds are also to be found. It was a truely wonderful experience to sit in a jeep near the shrunken river and just watch a vast array of different animals and birds, all visible at the same time.
