Tanzania What To Do

Dodge Hippos in Katavi

An estimated 4,000 elephants and herds of up to 1000 plus bufalo converge in Tanzania's wildest park, yet Katavi's most singular wildlife spectacle is provided by its hippos. Towards the end of the dry season, up to 200 individuals might flop together in any riverine pool of sufficient depth. And as more hippos gather in one place, so does male rivalry heat up - bloody territorial fights are an everyday occurrence. During game-drives, you can spend hours enjoying this fabulous spectacle in splendid isolation in the quest of that perfect snap.
