Accommodation

Mikumi Tanapa Cottages

These self-contained cottages inside the Mikumi National Park are managed by the Tanzania National Parks Authority (TANAPA). The rooms and food are very basic. Animals are commonly seen around the cottages.

Mikumi Wildlife Camp

This camp is located in the heart of Mikumi National Park, within a few hundred meters of the main entrance gate. It has nine en-suite bandas (thatched house), each of which is large, well-ventilated, and with a large veranda. All bandas can accommodate four people in two separate rooms, making it convenient and family-friendly. The bandas, as well as the lounge, dining area, and bar, overlook the well-attended waterholes in front of the camp.

The camp's open-air restaurant looks out over the plains and gives guests the most wonderful panoramic views. The bar is a marvelous place to sit and watch the sunset. The camp also has a small swimming pool, and numerous animals are regularly seen close by. The camp is supplied by a generator that runs from 6 to 9 a.m., at lunchtime, and from 6 to 8 p.m.

Program

Day 1 - Mikumi National Park

At around 07:30 a.m., you will have a meet-and-greet session in Dar es Salaam, then drive for about six hours and with packed lunch to Mikumi National Park. Animals commonly seen in the area include the elephant, giraffe, zebra, antelope, wildebeest, eland, crocodile, hippo, and baboon. If you are lucky, you may also see the lion and leopard. Another attraction in the park are the hippo pools, where you can watch hippos wallowing and snorting at close range.

Over 300 species of birds are seen in the park as well, including the saddle-billed stork, hamerkop, malachite kingfisher, lilac-breasted roller, yellow-throated longclaw, bateleur, and others. Enjoy a late-afternoon game drive with sunset viewing, and watch the animals drinking water at the hippo pool. Your dinner and overnight stay will either be at the Mikumi Tanapa Cottages or Mikumi Wildlife Camp, depending on your booking.

Day 2 - Dar es Salaam

After breakfast, you will have a short, morning game drive until 9:30 a.m., then drive back to Dar es Salaam, again for about six hours and with hot lunch on the way. You will be dropped off at either your hotel for the night, or Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR) for your flight home.
