Mikumi National Park

Covers 3,230 sq km of open flood plains and wooded hills, some 1,800 ft above sea level. Large herds of elephant feed by the Mkata River, and lion, buffalo, hippo, giraffe and many other species can be seen, including an occasional sable antelope and greater kudu. June to November is the best time for a visit, this being the dry season; though the Park is open all year round.
