Mkomazi National Park Tanzania 1 Day Safari: If you want to go off the beaten track and explore ‘real’ Tanzania then this day excursion is perfect for you.
Mkomazi National Park is located 190 kilometers (118 miles) from Arusha and about a 3 hours drive from Moshi (120 km’s). Mkomazi National Park is located in the northern part of Tanzania, between Moshi and Tanga.
The park finds itself in a beautiful setting with both the Pare and Usambara mountains towering above its boundaries. Depending on the weather, Mt. Kilimanjaro can be seen from the park.
The main source of water in Mkomazi comes from the Umba River in the southeast. As the park receives very little rain all year game drives along the river offer excellent wildlife sightings.
Mkomazi wildlife includes African wild dogs, black rhinos that live in a private sanctuary, oryx, gerenuk, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, jackal, elephant, buffalo, hartebeest, giraffe, warthog and crocodiles.
There are 450 species of bird found in the park including go-away-birds, ostriches, eagles, hoopoes, bustards, kingfishers, flamingos, cormorants, plovers and ducks.
The vegetation resembles that of a dry, desert like landscape. Due to the climate, the vegetation primarily consist of acacia-commiphora woodlands and towards the western mountains the vegetation changes to a dry land forest.
