Tanzania > Other Regions


  • Hello Mary, thanks again for your help in organising what was an absolutely tremendous holiday. My boys loved it right from the start of walking across the car park at Kenyatta Airport to find we were straight into a safari 4×4, and I’ve never heard my wife use the word “awesome” as much as the last fortnight. We saw some phenomenal habitats and wildlife, stayed in some fabulous accommodation, met some lovely people, and the welcome and hospitality extended to us was almost uniformly warm and generous throughout.

Other Regions

Mikumi abuts the north-western border of the vast Selous Game Reserve and is cut in two by the main Dar es Salaam to Iringa road. The park, Tanzania’s fourth largest at around 3200 sq.kms, is dominated by the Mkata floodplain and is one of the best areas to see eland, the largest antelope species.

Other game includes lion, elephant, Nyasa blue wildebeest, buffalo, giraffe and wild dog. Bird species number over 400. Ease of access and with a good network of roads make Mikumi a popular park to visit from Dar es Salaam, or if driving to Ruaha.

Day excursions to the remote and forested Udzungwa Mountains National Park can also be taken (there is no permanent accommodation in Udzungwa but the park does have a number of excellent walking trails). Udzungwa is an important birding area with four species endemic including the Udzungwa forest partridge only ‘discovered’ in 1991.
