WHERE TO STAY IN MIKUMI PARK
In Mikumi National Park, there are no true luxury East African travel accommodations as Tier 1. Set a Tier 2, Stanley’s Kopje Camp is smaller – twelve tents and more personalized, although only four kilometers from the Tanzam Highway. A traditional ethnic ambience is created by design and complemented by the true wilderness atmosphere engendered by a much-frequented small waterhole and breathtaking plains outlook. Guests are requested to economize on water and electricity as a solar-powered camp. Buffet breakfast and lunch are usual with fixed evening dinner menus. Because of the difficulty of access during the wet season, the camp is only open from June to February.
By contrast, the Tier 3 value, comfort tented camps include Vuma Hills Camp, one of a string of camps and lodges including Stanley’s Kopje owned by members of the Fox family, renowned for their experience of practical Tanzanian safari hospitality. Sixteen large, insect-proof tents with en-suite bathroom facilities and large private balconies sit on raised wooden decks above a small, shaded swimming pool in a wilderness setting. The camp is visited by a great assortment of wildlife, including genet and bush babies who visit the central bar, lounge and dining area at night. The camp atmosphere is relaxed. Catering is fresh and simple, and services are limited by the number of guests accommodated.
Mikumi Wildlife Camp at also Tier 3 is in fact a basic, accessible, no-frills lodge with its former name - Kikoboga Lodge, featuring six simple stone-built thatched bandas with en-suite bathroom, a fan and turndown service which entails spraying with insecticide and keeping your window quarters closed throughout the night to maintain its repellent effect. Despite a faint rumble of traffic from the main access road less than 100 meters distant, the grounds and waterhole are visited by a good selection of wildlife and the surrounding wilderness area offers an excellent starting point for game-viewing trips in Mikumi. There is a small swimming pool and airy central bar, lounge and dining complex.

Ruaha was everything we had hoped it would be. We couldn't imagine a trip there without visiting Ngorongoro Crater and a combination of Ruaha and Selous. Our thanks to the AfricanMecca team and Raza for a most exceptional trip!

I booked my safari holiday through AfricanMecca. They were the most helpful company I have ever dealt with and I work within the travel industry. I had the most amazing time. The holiday went as clockwork with no hitches anywhere.
Shelley Roberts - Hemel Hempstead, United Kingdom
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.
Cyril Christo & Marie Wilkinson, Conservation Photographers, Authors & Wildlife Documentary Producers - USA

EAST AFRICA SAFARI BOOKING TRIP IDEA FOR MIKUMI IN SOUTHERN TANZANIA
When visiting Mikumi National Park, we recommend combining it with offbeat parks in Southern and Western Tanzania such as Nyerere (Selous), Ruaha or Katavi ending with a chimpanzee trekking safari at Gombe or Mahale.
You may optionally extend out to Northern Tanzania safari parks such as Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti (wildebeest migration). End your trip with a Swahili cultural tour and beach holiday in Zanzibar.

SAFARI & TOUR IN MIKUMI
At Mikumi, game is more varied, but not as densely congregated as it is in the Serengeti. The central Mkata floodplain has herds of elephants, buffalos, impalas and zebras congregating during the day.

BEST TIME TO VISIT MIKUMI
The best time for a dream wildlife safari in Mikumi is between June and October, in the dry season, when the plains host large herds of elephant and ungulates clustering to the last remaining water sources.
