This area offers the highest game density of the entire conservation area that lies west of Dar es Salaam City and 107 km from the nearest town named Morogoro located on the highway from Dar es Salaam to Zambia, covering an area of 3230 km².  Enjoy lunch that will be served en route to the Park.

Mikumi houses a huge concentration of animals, including Lions, Elephants, Buffaloes, Hippopotamus, Crocodiles, and many more.   The park contains a subspecies of giraffe that biologists consider to be the link between the Masai giraffe and the reticulated or Somali giraffe.  Take in the landscape of Mikumi that is often compared to that of the Serengeti.

Important information

What to bring

  • Passport or ID card

Know before you go

  • Wildlife viewing in Mikumi is fine throughout the year, but the best time is from late June to October, the Dry season. At this time the vegetation is thinner, and animals gather around waterholes
  • The end of the Dry season (September and October) is particularly rewarding as big herds of animals come to drink at the last sources of water
