Mikumi National Park


... is located in the Southern Region of Tanzania

Mikumi is the fourth largest national park in Tanzania and forms a very important part of a much larger ecosystem including the more prestigious Ruaha and Selous. It contains some significant open grassland areas and has a lovely mountainous backdrop. There is a good range of wildlife too. The park is relatively easily accessed from Dar es Salaam and can also be used as a base for day trip to the Udzungwa Mountains.

The main potential downsides are the major main road that cuts through the heart of the reserve, the proximity of human habitation and commercial farming, the low chances of predator sightings, the relatively paucity of quality accommodation options and the fact that the reserve is not connected to the higher quality reserves of Ruaha and Selous by air.
