Mikumi National Park

See Africa’s famous wildlife and incredible scenery on this 3-day tour to Mikumi National Park,  one of Tanzania’s less-crowded Game Park located in the Southern Safari Circuit, a 4-hour drive from Dar es Salaam.

Mikumi National Park abuts the northern border of Africa’s biggest National Park – the Nyerere – and is transected by the surfaced road between Dar es Salaam and Iringa.

Departing from Dar es Salaam, we drive west then south-west to reach Mikumi National Park in the Morogoro Region. In the afternoon, we explore the landscape and wildlife of Mikumi which is often compared to that of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. Mikumi covers about 3 230 km² (1 247 mi²) of wilderness.

Elephant, Buffalo, Zebra, and Wildebeest are commonly sighted, along with various antelope species such as Impala, Kudu, Hartebeest, and Eland. Other animals to keep an eye out for in Mikumi are Lion, Giraffe, Hippo, Hyena, Wild dogs, Warthogs, Baboons, and more.

Over 300 species of birds have also been recorded in Mikumi Park, including Eurasian migrants such as red-billed oxpecker, marabou stork, and lilac-breasted roller, which stays between October and April.

At the end of an action-packed day of game viewing, we proceed to our comfortable lodge/ camp inside or outside of Mikumi for a relaxing evening. Accommodation options include Stanley’s Kopje camp, Vuma Hills Tented camp, Mikumi Wildlife Camp, Genesis Motel Mikumi, Vamos Hotel, Afrika Yangu Camp and Lodge, Tan-Swiss Lodge.

On day two we get up bright and early for a full day of game viewing in Mikumi National Park. The protected area consists largely of seasonal floodplains covered with grasslands that are similar to the savannahs of the Serengeti, dotted with thorn trees and baobabs.

The park also features Miombo woodlands on its low hills, as well as swamp and riverine forest areas. On our safari in Mikumi, we are likely to see Elephants, Buffalo, Wildebeest, Zebra, Warthog, and an assortment of Antelopes roaming around.

Predators found here include Wild Dogs, Lions, Jackals, Hyenas, and even Leopards. We may also see Giraffes, Hippos, Baboons, Roan Antelope, Sable Antelope, and Vervet Monkeys. Mikumi is also one of Tanzania’s important birding areas, with over 400 species recorded here.

Species include Boehm’s bee-eater, lilac-breasted roller, yellow-throated longclaw, Dickinson’s kestrel, straw-tailed whydah, Bateleur eagle, superb starling, and African fish eagle. We overnight at a camp/ lodge in Mikumi National Park.

On day three of our Southern Tanzania Safari to Mikumi, we enjoy a morning game drive. Then depart for Dar es Salaam making our way back to where our memorable adventure began.

Mikumi National Park Tanzania Highlights | What to Do and See

Mikumi Wildlife Game Drives: The Mikumi National Park has a big wildlife population where you will definitely see the “Big Five”.

Many mammals include yellow Baboon, Vervet Monkey, Sykes Monkey, Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Giraffe, Zebra, Eland, Buffalo, Greater Kudu, Bushbuck, Waterbuck and Lichtenstein’s Hartebeest.

Mikumi Bird Watching: More than 400 bird species have been recorded, with such colourful common residents as the lilac-breasted roller, yellow-throated longclaw and bateleur eagle joined by a host of European migrants during the rainy season.

Udzungwa National Park: Mikumi is also a great base for exploring the road-free Udzungwa National Park an hour away – in fact, the only real option since there is no accommodation in the park.

Here you’ll find some extremely rare birds, several endemic species of monkey (including the sanje-crested mangebey and the red hehe colobus) and some wonderfully adventurous rainforest hikes to waterfalls and panoramic 2,000m viewpoints

Mikumi Bush Breakfasts, Sundowners and Picnic Lunches in the bush. What better way to watch the sun go down than with a cool drink, overlooking the grunting hippos in a waterhole.

Today we spend the day on 2 game drives in Mikumi National Park. The Park provides an excellent opportunity to view a diverse number of animals and birds in a short period of time without too much driving around.

The wildlife viewing experience at Mikumi National Park includes baboons, zebras and impalas. It is easier to spot a tree-climbing lion in Mikumi National Park than to spot them at Lake Manyara National Park.

African Spice guests also have the opportunity to view the unique Mikumi Giraffes that naturalists say seem to be a cross between the reticulated and Masai giraffes.

You will also visit the hippo pool, which is best visited during the late afternoons as the distant setting sun and the bobbing hippo heads create perfect pictures.

After spotting the wallowing buffalos at the Mkata Flood Plains and elephants congregating near the water hole, return back to the camp for relaxation, dinner and overnight.
