Why Choose Mikumi National Park?

Mikumi National Park is a hidden gem offering a unique safari experience. Despite its proximity to Dar es Salaam, it remains one of Tanzania’s least visited parks, making it perfect for those seeking a more off-the-beaten-path adventure. Choose Mikumi if you want to explore diverse landscapes and encounter a wide variety of wildlife without the crowds.

Wildlife Encounters in Mikumi National Park Your journey into Mikumi begins at the park’s entrance gate, where you’ll be greeted by the sight of vast plains stretching to the horizon. The park is home to a variety of wildlife, including elephants, buffaloes, giraffes, zebras, and wildebeests. Keep an eye out for the park’s predators, such as lions and leopards, which are often spotted in the early mornings and late afternoons.

As you explore further, you’ll come across the Mkata River, the lifeblood of the park. The river is home to a variety of aquatic species, including hippos and crocodiles. Boat safaris along the river offer a unique perspective of the park’s wildlife, with the opportunity to see animals up close as they come to drink from the river.

The best time to visit Mikumi National Park is during the dry season, from June to October, when the weather is cool and dry, and wildlife is abundant. Avoid visiting during the rainy season, from November to May, as heavy rains can make the roads impassable.
