Day 1: DAR ES SALAAM – MIKUMI NATIONAL PARK

As you make your way to Mikumi National Park, the first step of your trip is to leave Dar es Salaam and go in that direction. You are about to go on a scenic drive that will take you on a journey through the beautiful countryside of Tanzania that will last around four hours. As soon as you arrive in Mikumi National Park, you will immediately go on an exciting game drive, during which you will search for the many species of animals that make this park their home. The park is home to a wonderful assortment of animals, including the mighty buffalo and beautiful giraffes, as well as the magnificent elephants, lions, and crocodiles that inspire awe. The excursion offers a one-of-a-kind chance to enjoy the natural delights that can be found in Mikumi, a park that is well-known for being easily accessible and located in close proximity to Dar es Salaam. As the game drive comes to a close about 3 in the afternoon, you will make your way back to the city, where you will be dropped off at your hotel. You will be left with a grin on your face and a wealth of experiences that you will never forget.

Day 2: MIKUMI-FULL DAY GAME DRIVE

You will begin the second day of your journey with breakfast at your hotel or place of home. This will be an enjoyable start to the day. You will be picked up from wherever you are staying in Arusha or Moshi not long after that, and brought along on the thrilling adventure of the day will be lunch boxes that have been pre-packed. Your last stop will be Mikumi National Park, which can be reached from Arusha in around 190 kilometres or from Moshi in approximately 120 kilometres. There are around 450 different kinds of birds that may be seen in and around the park. Some of these birds are rather unusual, such as ostriches, eagles, flamingos, and many more. The park is a veritable birdwatcher’s paradise. Acacia and Commiphora forests are prominent features of the topography of Mikumi, which otherwise resembles the arid terrain of a desert. The western mountainous areas undergo a change based on climate that results in the development of dryland forests. Your day will be filled with the beauty of nature and the excitement of seeing a variety of animal species in their natural habitats.

Day 3: MIKUMI – DAR ES SALAAM

After your time spent adventuring in Mikumi comes to a conclusion, you will go out into the park for an afternoon game drive. A notable aspect of Mikumi National Park is that it acts as a refuge for two animals that are in grave risk of extinction: the black rhino and the African wild dog. The 1990s saw the successful reintroduction of both of these amazing creatures to their natural habitat in the park. The population of black rhinoceroses, on the other hand, is kept to a walled sanctuary in order to guarantee their protection for future generations. Following the conclusion of the afternoon wildlife drive, you will say your goodbyes to Mikumi and then begin the trip back to Dar es Salaam. This busy city on Tanzania’s coast along the Indian Ocean has a long and illustrious history, as well as a rich cultural legacy. Your journey will come to a close with a stop at the open-air Village Museum, where you will see the traditional dwellings of local Tanzanian tribes and even observe tribal dance. This will give you a look into the rich and varied cultures that are found in the area.

Day 4: DAR ES SALAAM

Your trip will continue on Day 4 in Dar es Salaam, an exciting coastal city that was once a sleepy fishing hamlet but has since developed into a major commercial port on Tanzania’s Indian Ocean coast. Spend today discovering the one-of-a-kind appeal of the city, which includes a trip to the open-air Village Museum, where you can see the traditional dwellings of indigenous Tanzanian tribes and watch enthralling tribal dance. Before the end of your once-in-a-lifetime experience in Tanzania, be sure to take advantage of the city of Dar es Salaam’s extensive cultural offerings.
