Mikumi National Park is home
to an abundance of wildlife including tree climbing lions and the powerful eland. Northwest of the Morogoro/Iringa road you’ll find yourself on the Mkata Floodplain. This area is characterized by savannah country dotted with acacia, baobabs, tamarinds, and some rare palms. Roaming herds of wildebeest, buffalo, impala and zebra are all part of the surrounding scenery. Giraffe forage in the acacia trees by the Mkata River where elephants can be seen cooling off in the shallows.

On the miombocovered slopes of the Rubeho and Uluguru mountains you may see a small herd of sable antelope or a solitary male greater kudu with its beautifully twisted horns.
There are two pools inhabited by hippos who share their habitat with a great number of waterbirds. Altogether more than 400 different species of birds can be seen inside the park including the lilac-breasted roller and the bataleur eagle.
