Mikumi National Park

Mikumi National Park covers an area of 3,230 square kilometers and makes the third largest Park in southern Tanzania in Morogoro region. Mikumi hosts carnivores like lions, leopards, wild dogs, and a large population of herbivores grazing in the vast Mkata floodplain grasses including zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, impalas, elephants, Greater kudu and sable antelopes.

The park is 283 kilometers from Dar es Salaam city along the Dar es Salaam–Iringa main road. Unlike other parks and game reserves in the country the road to Iringa passes across the Mikumi National Park which gives a room to the travelers to view the wild animals. Mikumi is surrounded by a game reserve Selous, mountains Lumango and Uluguru and river Mkata.

Other mammals and reptiles include eland, waterbuck, wildebeests, crocodiles and baboons. The park also offers a nice view of birdlife and hippos to the close range on the north part of the park. Mikumi is famous for its ecosystem that makes it an important educational and research centre. Many students from various colleges and universities in the world pay a visit for their studies.
