This is officially Tanzania's third largest
park. Beyond the park's western border is a village from which the park derives its name. The word 'mikumi' is Swahili for the Borassus palm, a plant that
is widely grown in the village hence its name.
The park is nestled between the Uluguru ranges in the east and the Lumango Mountains in the
southwest. The park is very popular in Tanzania and is where students of ecology and conservation go to be enlightened in this park. The Mkata River Hood
Plain is the park's main feature.
The park is 288km from Dar es Salaam and can be reached
easily by road, thus making it a popular destination for the locals.
Within the park is a wide variety of animals; tree- climbing lions, giraffes, buffalos, elephants, leopards, hippos,
zebras, impalas, pythons, wild- dogs etc.
The park is also host to bird species, estimated to be 300 in total. Hippo pools punctuate the park, which
adds to the pleasant viewing. The park borders two other parks, Udzungwa and Selous Game Reserve; these three locations make up a good safari
All these can be observed from a number of viewing towers within the park. Vegetation in the park is miombo woodland.
