MIKUMI NATIONAL PARK

The savanna of light

This National Park lies 300 km West of Dar-es-Salaam. It is nestled between the Uluguru Mountains to the East and the Rift Valley escarpments to the South-West.

Even though this is a small park, it borders with the Selous Game Reserve, allowing movements of game and therefore Mikumi benefits of the highest game density of the entire conservation area, while still being easily accessible. Mikumi National Park is composed primarily of the Mkata River flood plain, surrounded by gently rolling hills covered in miombo woodland.

Mikumi still offers a good safari experience with typical flora and fauna of East Africa. There is a rich variety of bird species as well as large numbers of giraffes, buffaloes and elephants, lions, leopards, hippo, wildebeest, impala, warthog and eland.
