3 days / 2 nights Mikumi & Udzungwa Mountains National Parks
Mikumi is the fourth National Park in Tanzania in terms of size and its savannah landscape dotted with acacias, baobabs, tamarinds and palms is often compared with the Serengeti plains. It is easy to see elephants, zebras, hippos, crocodiles, giraffes, antelopes, buffalos, big cats such as lions and leopards, reptiles and a variety of birds.
The rain forest of Udzungwa Mountains is the second most bio diverse national park in Africa. Udzungwa is part of a chain of mountains called the Eastern Arc, also known as the African Galapagos for the great variety of endemic species that it treasures. Its forest is exuberant and magical, with trees over 30 meters high interlaced with lichens, mosses and ferns, barely letting in the sunshine. A paradise for hikers.
