Mikumi is the access point for the southern Tanzania tourist circuit.


A tented camp lays to the south of the main road at Vuma hill and there’s another campsite just north of the road.


Trees and other plants distinguish Mikumi. Marula trees (Mng’ongo in Swahilli) are common. This tree occurs in Deciduous, wooded grassland from south Africa to Ethiopia and the fruit is used to make the Amarula wild fruit cream drink that is indigenous to Africa.

Elephants regard the amarula as a delicacy, vigorously shaking the tree to dislodge the fruit.


Tamarind with its many medicinal uses, grotesque but distinctive baobabs, sausage, cassia, black thorn and African blackwood trees exist in Mikumi as do a profusion of flowers.



Floodplain, grassland, wooded savanna, miombo covered hills.
