Mpanda is the administrative centre of the Katavi Region of Tanzania, East Africa with a population of over 46,000 people.
It is an important centre in the rural economy, especially for the marketing and transhipment of rice and maize. The Katavi region is increasingly of interest to mineral prospectors, especially for gold. It is also a staging point for visiting the beautiful Katavi National Park, with its headquarters just 35 km to the south at Sitalike. The Park has a good cross-section of East African wildlife but is perhaps best known for its populations of hippopotamus.
