Mikumi National Park

Mikumi National Park

Size: 3,230 sq km (1,250 sq miles)
Established: 1964
Distance from Dar es Salaam: 283 km (175 miles)

You are in Dar es Salaam and want guaranteed wildlife sightings? Then the fourth largest National Park - Mikumi - will deliver. 

The impressive Mkara floodplain reminds one maybe of the great plains in Serengeti and is the heart of this National Park. It is on these floodplain where you can spot the eland which is the largest antelope on this planet. Similar to these are the remarkable greater kudus and asble antelope which can also be seen in the Park. 
Along the Mkata river and on the plains you can also spot the famous big five (Lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard) as well as giraffes, zebras, more than 400 hundred different birds and hippos which are walking their muddy path to the grasland during the evening times. 

Witnessing the huge herds grazing can be one of the most peaceful experiences. A less peaceful experience but still a one-of-a-kind experiences will be the hunt which can be witnessed by lucky visitors.  

The Park is close to the biggest Park in Africa - the Selous National Park - and since there is now a paved road to Dar es Salaam, it is easy to access and enjoy. Spending a weekend or daytrip here will definitely worth the time.


Thank you for considering us. We look forward to bringing you the best safari experience!
