Mikumi Wildlife Camp***

The Mikumi Wildlife Camp is located in the heart of Mikumi National Park and within a few hundred metres of the main entrance gate.

Day trips to the Udzungwa Mountains can be undertaken. The camp is a convenient stop over point on the way to Ruaha and Katavi National Parks, Zambia and Malawi.

Accommodation : The Mikumi Wildlife Camp has 9 Bandas. Each of our en-suite bandas is large and well ventilated with large verandas. All bandas can accommodate four people, in two separate rooms, making it convenient and friendly for families.

The bandas, as well as the lounge, dinning-area and bar, overlook the well-attended waterholes in front of the camp.

Stanley Kopjes****

Stanley’s Kopje Camp is the sister lodge of Vuma Hills Camp both located in the Mikumi National Park within driving distance. This camp is seasonal and only open from June through February and is the only small, personalized camp in Mikumi. Set up on a rocky kopje on the Mkata flood plain, the camp presides over the Mwanamboga waterhole.

The property and Mikumi are located approximately 4 hours by car from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s largest city. Safari flights can also be arranged from Dar es Salaam. This 3,230 km² area abuts the larger Selous Game Reserve and its abundant wildlife of the Mkata Floodplain is often compared to the Serengeti.

Accommodation : Exclusive camping ‘African’ style, combines creature comforts with the real bush experience; ideal for those wishing to be in the “thick of it” immersed amongst the wildlife. 8 custom designed tents raised on wooden platforms are sited around the rock kopje overlooking the floodplain. Twin beds with mosquito nets. Private veranda. Electricity until 11pm. Drinking water available.

Complimentary laundry service. Food, drinks, conversation all with 360-degree views – its all part of the service. Choice of full English or Continental breakfast. Lunch is a cold buffet (allowing flexible timing) with dessert. Three course dinner with vegetarian option. Any dietary requirement should be mentioned at time of booking. Decaffeinated coffee is not readily available in Tanzania.

Vuma Hils Lodge****

Vuma Hills Tented Lodge is perched above the trees stretching over the seemingly endless wilderness south west of Mikumi National Park. ‘Vuma’ translated from Kiswahili means “a good rumor that is spread with the blowing wind”. Now a reality rather than just a rumor, it is the ideal place to evoke the true spirit of Africa.

Accommodation : Your spacious and comfortable tent is one of sixteen, all with a rather old fashioned colonial décor. Sleeping under canvas at Vuma is a far cry from the discomfort usually associated with camping. Complete with shaded wooden veranda at the front and en suite bathroom facilities at the back, there is not much to be asked for.

Each tent has a double and a single bed. The tents are mosquito proof. Generator provides electricity and there are lights and sockets (3 pin square 220 V) in each tent. The generator will run from 10am to 2pm and again from 6.30pm to 11pm. The en suite bathroom has a shower, basin and toilet. All water is solar heated. Mobile phones will work at Mikumi depending on the network arrangements.

Dining : The dining room overlooks the swimming pool creating an oasis of tranquillity in the dusty hot climate of the lowlands in which to savor the varied and well-prepared meals cooked with pride by the camp chefs.
