There are various other national parks in other regions of the country, mainly in the Western region of Tanzania. Close to the embankments of Lake Tanganyika are the Gombe Stream and the Mahale Mountains creating an extremely graceful landscape.
A visit to the Katavi National Park will allow you to experience the vast wilderness consisting of lions, leopards, hippos and the Cape buffalos. Katavi is typically a dry season conservation area with large portions of Miombo woodland that are met by a number of rivers, each with expansive floodplains. Between April and November, these open floodplains entice ample amounts of wildlife.
