GUIDE ON STANLEY’S KOPJE IN MIKUMI CAMP IN TANZANIA
Stanley's Kopje Camp in Mikumi National Park - Southern Tanzaniais set around and upon a small, rocky outcrop (dutch ~ kopje), commanding unending views of the flat, golden savannah of the Mkata flood plain, which changes color from beige through straw to orange, yellow, amber and treacle brown as the sun traverses the burning bowl of sky. The kopje supports a small population of hyrax, klipspringer, mongooses, lizards and an occasional yellow baboon from further south. The camp is secluded and close proximity to the game rich Mwanamboga waterhole dam with its resident hippos and crocodiles, and is frequented by many thirsty ungulates e.g. impala, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, as well as their predators, cheetah, leopard, lion and hyena. The small, intimate Stanley's Kopje was rebuilt in 2011 from the former branded Foxes Safari Camp to appeal to adventurous African travel enthusiasts with airy, simple, but pleasant aesthetically satisfying thatched tents raised on stilted decks. Stanley’s Kopje Camp is only open in the dry season from June to February as the black cotton soil is saturated in the wet season resulting to very demanding game driving experiences with access to only short distances. Mikumi National Park, one of the oldest in Tanzania, is part of the southern Tanzania’s Selous ecosystem. It lies to the north of the Great Ruaha River, between the massive southern Selous Game Reserve and southwestern Ruaha National Park, and is an ideal short mid-point stopover break on a Tanzania’s National Parks and Reserves southern tour circuit with AfricanMecca. Although Stanley’s Kopje is quickly accessed by air from Dar Es Salaam and is only five kilometers from the busy Tanzam Highway entry point into Mikumi. When inside the park, it preserves the impression of wilderness as experienced by Henry Morton Stanley as he searched for Dr. Livingstone on his expedition safari in Tanzania in 1871.

AfricanMecca's professionalism and care understands that what distinguishes Africa is its authenticity, the land, people and wildlife who do not share our world of fashion and fanfare that distinguish so many travel companies today.
