Mkomazi National Park


Mkomazi National Park

Nestled in northern Tanzania lies the hidden gem of Mkomazi National Park, a stunning 3,500 square kilometre wilderness that has remained off the beaten path until recently. Despite being established in 1951, it has never received the same attention and funding as its famous counterparts, such as the Serengeti and Ngorongoro. However, since its designation as a National Priority Project in 1989, its true value has been recognized, and it's now more accessible than ever before.

Mkomazi National Park offers a unique and breathtaking experience, with magnificent views of Mount Kilimanjaro and the dramatic Pare and Usambara Mountains forming a stunning backdrop. To the north lies Kenya's Tsavo National Park, creating a common ground for migratory herds of elephant, oryx, and zebra during the wet season. Together, Mkomazi and Tsavo form one of the most significant protected ecosystems on the planet.

With its classic dry-country reserve of grey-green nyika bush, ancient baobab trees, and rocky hills, Mkomazi is a sight to behold. You'll also find open savannah woodlands of umbrella acacias and mbugas - shallow valleys of grassland. If you're seeking an authentic wilderness experience that's off the beaten track, Mkomazi National Park is the perfect destination for you.

Both Franky and Francis were very

Angelica was a pleasure to work with from the beginning. She was attentive to our needs, highly flexible and easy to communicate with. The trip was very well planned especially given our time constraints. The 7 day lemosho hike was a success, reaching Uhuru Peak.

This year I decided to celebrate my birthday by taking a challenge and that was to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. The idea came 6 months back & accordingly I prepared myself. I made my plan in such a way so that I reached the summit on 21st June 2017 (my birthday).
