3 Days Mikumi National Park Southern Tanzania Safari Tour is a short tour under the 3 Days 2 Nights Tanzania Safari Holidays Tours from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania by road to Mikumi National Park – one of the spectacular southern circuit National parks of Tanzania.

A good surfaced road connects Mikumi to Dar es Salaam via Morogoro, a roughly 4 hour drive. Explore the landscape and wildlife of Mikumi which is often compared to that of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.

Mikumi National Park abuts the northern border of Africa’s biggest game reserve – the Selous – and is transected by the surfaced road between Dar es Salaam and Iringa.

The park is well-known for its population of elephants, giraffe’s buffaloes, zebras, elands, greater Kudu, wildebeest, roan and sable antelope. Predators include tree-climbing lions (which are in large number), leopards, wild hunting dogs and black-backed jackal.

More than 400 species of birds have been recorded in Mikumi National Park including Eurasian migrants such as red billed ox pecker, marabou stork and lilac breasted roller, which stays between October and April.

There are more interesting bird species in the Miombo woodland, for example, Shelley’s double collared sun bird, pale billed hornbill and violet-crested Turaco as well as violet-backed starling.

The surrounding mountain and hills brings compelling natural beauty with addition to superb light, make it a wonderful venue for wildlife photographers.

 It is common to see elephants, lions and sometimes giraffes on/ along the Tanzania-Zambia highway, especially in the evening or night. Nowadays leopards are commonly seen.

Mikumi National Park Tanzania Highlights | What to Do and See

Mikumi Wildlife Game Drives: The Mikumi National Park has a big wildlife population where you will definitely see the “Big Five”.

Many mammals include yellow baboon, vervet monkey, sykes monkey, lion, elephant, rhino, giraffe, zebra, eland, buffalo, greater kudu, bushbuck, waterbuck and Lichtenstein’s hartebeest.

Mikumi Bird Watching : More than 400 bird species have been recorded, with such colorful common residents as the lilac-breasted roller, yellow-throated long claw and bateleur eagle joined by a host of European migrants during the rainy season.

Udzungwa National Park: Mikumi is also a great base for exploring the road-free Udzungwa National Park an hour away – in fact, the only real option since there is no accommodation in the park.

Here you’ll find some extremely rare birds, several endemic species of monkey (including the sanje-crested mangebey and the red hehe colobus) and some wonderfully adventurous rainforest hikes to waterfalls and panoramic 2,000m viewpoints

Mikumi Bush Breakfasts, Sundowners and Picnic Lunches in the bush. What better way to watch the sun go down than with a cool drink, overlooking the grunting hippos in a waterhole.
