Katavi National Park was gazetted in 1974 and is located in Western
Tanzania. It is a very remote park that is less frequently visited
than other Tanzanian national parks. The park is approximately
4,471 square kilometers (1,726 sq mi) in area, which makes it the
third largest national park in Tanzania. The park encompasses the
Katuma River and the seasonal Lake Katavi and Lake Chada
floodplains.Wildlife features include large animal herds,
particularly of Cape Buffalo and elephant, plus along the Katuma
river, crocodiles and hippos which upon annual dry seasons results
in mudholes that can be packed with hundreds of hippos. Some
sources claim a very high biodiversity in the park, although there
are also reports of wildlife decline due to illegal hunting and
poaching, presumably 'bushmeat' sustenance. In general, what is
probably most noteworthy feature of Katavi versus other Tanzania
parks is that it lacks human visitors and jeeps conducting game
