The 1974 founded National Park is in a northern extension of the Rukwa Valley and was build on the initiative of the local population and with financial and technical help from the Zoological Association Frankfurt.

The Katavi National Park is known as a very untouched, wild and exciting park. Most of the tourists tour the north of Tanzania and therefore leave the west to a few lucky tourists who are able to gaze at more than 4000 elephants and giant herds of buffalo. Often spotted animals are hyenas, giraffes, zebras, eland–antelopes, hippos, corocodiles, waterbucks and with some luck lions which like to lie on trees during noon. The highlight of a visit is the sighting of a leopard at dawn or twilight. Even though the park is easily reached by domestic flight only a few tourists tour it. One of the reasons is the Tsetse-fly, widespread in Katavi, however it is possible to visit the park.

Original African wilderness is characteristical for the Katavi National Park which iscaffected by three waters: In the north by Lake Katavi and its grassland, in the southeast by the palm-fringed lake Chada and the Katuma River with its swampland.
