Mikumi National Park
With an area of 3,230 sq. km (1,250 sq. Miles) Mikumi national park links the Julius Nyerere National Park (formerly part of Selous game reserve) with the forested abundance of the eastern arc mountains, and so is an important part of a huge ecosystem of rivers, flood plains, forests, and woodlands.
Mikumi abounds with big game, including buffalo, elephant, the big cats, hippo, crocodile, giraffe, zebra, eland as well as smaller species. Some of the more unusual species such as sable antelope, Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, and greater kudu inhabit the wooded areas surrounding the Mkata plains and are more of a challenge to find.
