Mikumi National Park shares its official boundary in the far south, with the large Selous Game Reserve as well as Kilombero Game Controlled Area so some of the wild animals cross from the other wildlife sanctuaries into this park among which are: Zebras, Wild dogs, Buffaloes, lions and Elephant.

The Mikumi 3 Day Safari begins with a pickup and is concluded with a drop off at a hotel in Dar es Salaam. In case you prefer that transfer tou to the airport for your departure flight, that too can be arranged.

Day 1: Dar -es -Salaam Hotel/Airport – Drive to Mikumi National Park

In the morning after breakfast, you will transfer south driving through the beautiful city where you will see modern building and then into the rural countryside to Mikumi National Park a drive that will take about 4 hours.

Once in the park, you will continue to your lodge where you will check in and have lunch.

In the afternoon you will briefly relax by the pool and then go for a game drive in the afternoon during which you will be rewarded with stunning views of different wild animals and birds. This drive is very thrilling and a pleasurable experience.

The wildlife viewing experience at Mikumi National Park can be experienced right upon entering the park where guests can encounter baboons, zebras and impalas. Safari guides often state that it is easier to spot a tree-climbing lion in Mikumi National Park than to spot them at Lake Manyara National Park.

Guests spending the night at African Spice guests will have the chance to see the exclusive Mikumi Giraffes which naturalists claim to be a cross breed between the Masai plus reticulated giraffes.

As you drive around the different park trails, you will finally reach the hippo pool, I recommend to visit in the late afternoons since the far-away setting sun plus the popping hippo heads form wonderful pictures. After seeing the wallowing buffalos in the Mkata Flood Plains together with the elephants gathering up around the adjacent water hole, you will return to your accommodation, relax, dine and spend the night.
