Dar es salaam 1 Day Tours Mikumi National Park takes you to Tanzania’s fourth largest national park, covering an area of 3,230 km² (1,250 miles²). It borders Africa’s biggest game reserve – the Selous Game Reserve and is well-known for its boundless opportunities to spot the famous African Big Five – Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo, Rhino, and of course Lion.
Accompanied by a qualified and knowledgeable guide, you will experience the best of the top destinations in South Tanzania. Three of the big five can be regularly sighted within the Mikumi borders: lion, elephant, and buffalo, many of which have characteristics specific to this area.
Mikumi lions are famous for exhibiting the rare behavior of climbing on trees, and there is the unusual phenomenon of ‘midget elephants’, which are smaller than the normal African elephants and have less distinct tusks. Mikumi is also popular for sightings of the world’s largest antelope – the eland.
A subspecies of giraffe, that has been classified as a link between the Masai giraffe and the Reticulated or Somali giraffe, can be found grazing among the savannah’s baobabs, tamarinds, acacias, and rare palms. In the north of the park, hippopotami inhabit the two artificial ponds and are joined by an array of water birds.
Mikumi National Park is popular with bird watchers, as it provides living and breeding space for over 400 species of birds, including European migrating birds using it as their winter residence.
