Don’t miss the Big Five at Mikumi! With a wide variety of wildlife, Mikumi National Park near Morogoro in Tanzania, is a popular game viewing destination if you are interested in leopards, lions, elephants, buffaloes and rhinos. Hippo pools provide close access to the lethargic beasts, and bird-watching along the waterways is particularly rewarding as the park houses more than 400 species of birds! Together with the Selous Game Reserve on the south, the park offers a unique and protected ecosystem which is bordered by the Uluguru and Udzungwa mountains. Accessible throughout the year, the park is great for wildlife safaris and walking tours.
