Location

This wildlife safari trip will take place at Mikumi National Park in Tanzania.

Mikumi National Park

Mikumi National Park was gazetted as a national park in August 1964 and is the fourth largest park (following recent extension of Katavi) in Tanzania covering 3,230 square kilometers. The park is named after the village just beyond its western border on Dar es Salaam-Iringa highway which bisects the park for 50 kilometers.

The main feature is the Mikumi floodplain, along with the mountain ranges that border the park on two sides. Mikumi shares its boundary in the extreme south, with the Selous Game Reserve, and the two make one ecosystem with some animals (elephant, buffalos, and zebras) migrating to and from the northern part of the reserve into Mikumi National Park.

Because of its accessibility, it is one of the most popular parks in Tanzania and is an important center for education where students go to study ecology and conservation. Crocodiles, monitor lizard, and python are commonly found. Some Mikumi’s elephants that you will encounter are unique with ivory and they are uncommon than those found in the rest of the country but still a formidable sight when viewed close up.

Tanzania

Tanzania lies on the east coast of Africa and it is covering an area of 937,062 square kilometers. It bordered by Kenya and Uganda to the north; by Burundi, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo to the west; by the Indian Ocean to the east; and by Zambia, Malawi, and Mozambique to the south.

The Tanzanian mainland is divided into several clearly defined regions: the coastal plains, which vary in width from 16 to 64 kilometers (10 to 39 miles) and have lush, tropical vegetation; the Masai Steppe in the north, 213 to 1,067 meters (698 to 3,500 feet) above sea level; and a high plateau in the southern area towards Zambia and Malawi or Nyasa.

Savannah and bush cover over half the country and semi-desert accounts for the remaining land area, with the exception of the coastal plains. Over 53,000 square kilometers (20,463 square miles) is inland water, mostly lakes formed in the Rift Valley. The United Republic of Tanzania includes the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba, about 45 kilometers (28 miles) off the coast to the northeast of the country. Tanzania is a country of stunning beauty, a kaleidoscope of landscape, wildlife, and people.
