Mikumi National Park is the fourth-largest national park, with a landscape of baobabs, black hardwood trees, and grassy plains, and the most accessible from Dar es Salaam. With almost guaranteed year-round wildlife sightings, Mikumi makes an ideal safari destination for those without much time. Within its 3230 sq km – set between the Uluguru Mountains to the northeast, the Rubeho Mountains to the northwest, and the Lumango Mountains to the southeast – Mikumi hosts buffaloes, wildebeest, giraffes, elephants, lions, zebras, leopards, crocodiles, and endangered wild dogs, and chances are high that you’ll see a respectable sampling of these within a short time of entering the park.
Pick you at the hotel in Dar – Es – Salaam or airport at 6:00 am and travel 283 km to Mikumi National Park with lunch at the restaurant in Morogoro.
