Remote and undiscovered, Mahale Mountains National Park and Katavi National Park provide a true African wilderness in western Tanzania.

The third largest of Tanzania’s national parks and the least visited, Katavi National Park provides the most exclusive, untamed and wild safari experience possible. Accessible only by light aircraft, the 4,471km2 park is supported by three seasonal rivers; the Katuma, Kavu and Kapapa. Following the rains, the park shows similarities to the Okavango Delta whilst the dry season brings the rapid loss of water sources with hippo and crocodile in their thousands collecting in diminishing pools, large populations of mammals flocking to the rivers in search of water followed by vast numbers of predators and the imminent fight for survival in this wild and arid area.

On the shores of Lake Tanganyika, the 1,650km2 Mahale Mountain National Park is home to the Mahale Mountain range and one of the largest wild chimpanzee populations. Habituated since the 1960’s these chimpanzees remain completely wild whilst allowing for close up human encounters – this is undoubtedly one of the prime chimpanzee experiences in the world.
