Day Tour to Mkomazi National Park

Located just east of the Pare Mountains in Tanzania’s Eastern Arc range, and situated just south of the border with Kenya, Mkomazi National Park is a magnificent, 3,500 square kilometre land cover national park in northern Tanzania set below the verdant slopes with the spectacular uniqueness view. It never attracted the financial support provided for the better known wildlife strongholds like the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the Serengeti National Parks not until it became a vital refuge for two highly endangered species, the charismatic black rhino and the sociable African wild dog, both of which were successfully reintroduced in the 1990s making it one of the government’s priority watch.

Today, thousands of people pass within a few kilometers of Mkomazi on one of Tanzania’s busiest highways. These and the northern circuit safari-goers are now most welcomed to discover the treasures of this wedge of hilly semi-arid savannah, home of large herds of giraffe, eland, hartebeest, zebra, buffalo and elephant found in the northwest of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest summit.

To the south, the Pare and Usambara Mountains form a dramatic backdrop and, to the north, Kenya’s vast Tsavo National Park shares a border with Mkomazi, making common ground for migratory herds of elephant, oryx and zebra during the wet season. Together with Tsavo, it forms one of the largest and most important protected ecosystems on earth which adds to the fulfillment of high visitor’s enjoyment expectations– a much needed bridge between northern circuit and coastal attractions.

For bird lovers, Mkomazi is even more numerous, with over 400 recorded species. Doves, hornbills, weavers and guinea-fowl are all present in large numbers including the martial eagle and violet wood-hoopoe striking species.
