Mikumi National Park
Mikumi national park is the fourth-largest in Tanzania which is mostly accessible from Dar es Salaam and also from the northern regions. Tanzaniaflow tours guarantees wildlife sightings, which will make an ideal safari destination for those without much time.
Mikumi national park covers an area of 3230 square kilometers which part of it has been developed for tourism. The Mkata flood plains is the area with good infrastructure demarcated roads for game drives purposes but plans are underway to develop the rest of the park and put in place roads to enable the utilization of the whole park for game viewing and even walking/trekking purposes. Mikumi National Park borders Selous Game Reserve and is also part of the larger Selous Ecosystem.
The park is accessible all year round and the Mkata River ensures a year round supply of water and foliage for animals. Most largest antelopes can be found here with elands, and rare Greater Kudus as well. There are animals which can be viewed in the park like the giraffes, buffaloes, zebras, wildebeests and rare sable antelopes. Know as a little Serengeti national park is rich with a wide range of wildlife.
The park hosts large numbers of Rhinos and large herds of Elephants, Buffaloes, Zebras, wildebeest, hyenas, Leopards, Lions, Sable Antelopes, Great Kudu, and many more. The chances of seeing tree climbing lions in Mikumi national park are higher than in the famous tree climbing lions home like Lake Manyara national park.
The miombo woodlands of the foot hills of the mountains that rise above Mikumi national parks borders offer amazing views.
