Mikumi National Park

Mikumi National ParkSet between the Uluguru Mountains to the north and the Lumango mountains to the south-east and within and a short flight from Dar es Salaam, Mikumi offers over 3,000 sq km of terrain teeming with wildlife and 300 species of birdlife many of which are Eurasia. Here you can see buffaloes, giraffes, zebras, lions, leopards, sable antelopes, hippos and crocodiles-plus a special treat-the Mikumi is also an important centre for the study of primates such as the yellow baboon. The park is 330 km from Dar es Salaam on the highway to Zambia.
