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.
