Mikumi National Park
Mikumi is half a days drive for Dar Es Salaam and is a great destination for a weekend getaway visit or in combination with Udzungwa or Ruaha. Mikumi is surrounded by Eastern Arc Mountains leading to spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Mikumi is a great park for seeing lots of animals very quickly and after 5 minutes passing the gate you will have seen about ten species of large mammals. Mikumi is also excellent for birdwatching (in particular raptors) and an IUCN Important Bird Area.

Mikumi is not a busy park and you will frequently be the only car in site. This gives that great feeling of being alone in the bush.
Mikumi has a good cat population and recently we have been seeing both leopard and lions regularly. Wild Dogs are also making a comeback in the Mikumi area. There are several great camp-sites in Mikumi as well as several lodges. We recommenced camping in the park with an armed ranger for your protection.
