Brief information about Mikumi national park and Sanje waterfalls

Mikumi National Park is the fourth largest in Tanzania. It’s also the easiest to get to from Dar es Salaam. With confirmed wild life encounters, it is an excellent safari option for those with limited time. Mikumi National Park’s splendor can be enjoyed over the course of two days or longer.

Mikumi National Park, located between the Uluguru Mountains and the Lumango River, has been earmarked as a significant tourism destination for Tanzania since the construction of a highway connecting it to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s busiest and largest city. Mikumi’s landscape is evocative of the Serengeti National Park, with savannah grasslands teeming with tamarinds, acacia, baobab, and unusual palms, as well as typical African savannah species.

Mikumi National Park contains a variety of features, such as savannah plains, Acacia trees, Baobab trees, Tamarind trees, and Palm trees. Among the various animal species that can be seen roaming the park’s savannah vegetation are elephants, impalas, eland, zebras, greater kudu, wildebeests, buffaloes, and sable antelopes. Several bird species can be seen, including the Yellow-throated Longclaw, Bateleur eagle, and Lilac-breasted Roller.

The dry season, which spans from June to October, is the best time to visit Mikumi National Park and experience exceptional wildlife observations. During this time, the vegetation is thinner, and animals can be observed congregating around the Mkata River, a freshwater source. This is also a popular season for tourists, as many come at this time of year.
