Day by Day Overview

Depart from your hotel in Dar Es Salaam around 7-8 am for Mikumi National Park (4-5 hours drive from, 283 kilometers (175 miles) west of Dar es Salaam.) It’s nestled between the Uluguru Mountains to the east and the Rift Valley Escarpments to the south west. As it is close to the Selous ecosystem and therefore part of it, it benefits from the highest game density of the entire conservation area. Mikumi National Park obtains a good impression of the African animal world and is definitely suitable for a short visit. After arrival at Mikumi National Park you have the opportunity to enjoy a sunset game drive around the park.

Furthermore you can see zebra, lion, wild dog, python, hartebeest, wildebeest, impala, warthog, eland and other antelopes. Several observation towers enable you to overview the park in its entirety. Mikumi National Park is mostly miombo woodland with gently rolling hills.
