MIKUMI NATIONAL PARK† Most visitors come to Mikumi National Park looking to spot game like lions, elephants, buffalos, zebras and giraffes,
†and they arenít disappointed. Hippo pools provide close access to the mud-loving beasts,
and bird-watching along the waterways is particularly rewarding.
TAN-SWISS is only located 2 km west of Mikumi Nationalpark and is therefore the ideal base for safaris.†
With our open top roof Landrover's, we can easily drive you round Mikumi Nationalpark† on a one day or half day trip.†
Mikumi Nationalpark is the 4th largest National Park in Tanzania, lying just to the north of the famous Selous Game Reserve.
Gazetted in 1964, the park shares one ecosystem with Selous,
making animals migrate to and from the northern part of the reserve into the park.
Covering an area of 3230 sq km, Mikumi National Park lies in a horseshoe of towering mountains and forested foothills,
which almost enclose the flood plain of the Mkata River. To the east rises the 2743 metres
massif of the Uluguru ranges while to the southwest are the craggy peaks of the Vidinda hills.
The park has a wide variety of wildlife that are easy to spot and well acclimatised to game viewing.
Its proximity to Dar es Salaam and the amount of wildlife that live within its borders makes Mikumi National Park
a popular option for weekend visitors from the city, or for business visitors who donít have long to spend on an extended safari itinerary.
