Mikumi National Park

This short fly-in safari, starting and ending in Zanzibar, packs a lot in, with game drives and a guided walking tour around the wonderful Mikumi – one of Tanzania’s lesser-known national parks.

Perfect for those who wish to incorporate an authentic safari experience into their Zanzibar beach holiday, this tour will provide you not only with plenty of game driving time, but also the opportunity to leave your safari vehicle behind, stretch your legs and get even closer to the sights, sounds and smells of the real Tanzania.

The Mikumi national park is situated between the Unguru Mountains to the east and the Rift Valley Escarpments to the south-west.  It actually forms part of the Selous ecosystem, and boasts the highest concentration of game of the entire conservation area.  There are many species of bird to be spotted here, along with giraffe, buffalo, elephant, zebra, wild dogs, hartebeest, wildebeest, eland, warthog and python.  Lion, leopard and hippos can sometimes be seen congregating at the water holes.  Combined with the stunning scenery, there’s no shortage of sights to be enjoyed at this national park.

On this tour, you will also have the opportunity to explore the Mikumi surrounds on foot, traversing the miombo woodland and gently rolling hills.  As well as stretching your legs, this is the ultimate way to really feel Tanzania, taking in the sights of the landscape, sounds of the wildlife around you and scents of the fresh air and fantastic flora.

Vuma Hills Tented Camp

Vuma Hills Tented Camp is the perfect place to spend two nights, offering a wonderful base from which to explore the stunning surrounding scenery.  The style here is elegant and old fashioned, somehow making a nod to the old-style colonial decor.  The camp itself perches just above the forest trees.

In between adventurous game drives and exhilarating nature walks, you can return to Vuma Hills for some well earned rest.  In the dining room, delicious meals created using fresh produce from the camp's own highland farm is served - whether it be a full English breakfast after an early morning game drive, or a delicious dinner followed by teas and coffees.  The dining room overlooks the swimming pool - the ideal haven from the hot sun and dusty surrounding landscape.

With fine dining, a cooling outdoor pool and idyllic setting, this is the perfect place to escape "real life" for a while!
