A well known National Park in Morogoro
Tanzania is a big country that not even a month will be enough to visit the whole region, town-to-town but Morogoro as part of the country is where Mikumi National Park is found. Mikumi national park is well known to be a home to various wild animals.
What can be said about Mikumi National Park?
Mikumi is Tanzania’s fourth-largest national park. It’s also the most accessible from Dar es Salaam. The park has been slated to become a hotspot for tourism in Tanzania, located between the Uluguru Mountains and the Lumango range.
Why do visitors come to Mikumi National Park?
Most visitors come to Mikumi National Park aiming to spot the ‘Big Five’ (Cheetah, Lion, Elephant, Buffalo and Rhino), and they are always not disappointed. Hippo pools provide close access to the mud-loving beasts, and bird-watching along the waterways is particularly rewarding.
What to expect apart from the big 5?
More than 400 bird species have been recorded, with such colourful common residents as the lilac-breasted roller, yellow-throated long claw and bateleur eagle joined by a host of European migrants during the rainy season. Hippos are the star attraction of the pair of pools situated 5km north of the main entrance gate, supported by an ever-changing cast of water-birds.
