Welcome to Mikumi National Park

Lies between the city of Dar es salaam and iringa town, Mikumi national park is one of the largest national parks abundant in wildlife perfect for a getaway from Dar es Salaam city.
Mikumi National Park abuts the northern border of Africa’s biggest game reserve – the Selous – and is transacted by the surfaced road between Dar es Salaam and Iringa. It is thus the most accessible part of a 75,000 square kilometer (47,000 square mile) tract of wilderness that stretches east almost as far as the Indian Ocean. The open horizons and abundant wildlife of the Mkata Floodplain, the popular centerpiece of Mikumi, draw frequent comparisons to the more famous Serengeti Plains. More than 400 bird species have been recorded.
Hippos are the star attraction of the pair of pools situated 5km north of the main entrance gate, supported by an ever-changing cast of water birds.
. Fourth Largest National Park in Tanzania.
. Shares boundary with Selous Game Reserve in the south which is transected by the main road from Dar es Salaam to Iringa.
. Animals migrate between the Mikumi National Park and the Selous Game Reserve.
. It’s also the most accessible from Dar es Salaam. With almost guaranteed wildlife sightings, it makes an ideal safari destination for those without much time.

WHEN TO GO
Climate is tropical and the park is accessible year round. The best time to visit the park is during the dry season which is June through February.
