Mikumi National Park


Forming the northern borders of Africa's biggest game reserve - the vast Selous - Mikumi is one of the most popular of Tanzania's National Parks, the most accessible part of a 75,000 square km wilderness.

The main feature of the park is the Mikumi flood plain, along with the mountain ranges that border the park on two sides. Open grasslands dominate the flood plain eventually merging with the miombo woodland, favourite haunt of the lion.

Observation towers above the treeline allow panoramic views of the plain laid out below, home to formidable herds of buffalo. Mikumi's elephants are more compact than those in the rest of the country but still a formidable sight when viewed close up.

Mikumi's road network provides visitors with easy game viewing drives, with hippo, zebra, giraffe, hartebeest and wildebeest abounding. The park is accessible all year round.
