Day 1: ARRIVAL/DAR-ES-SALAAM
Day 2: DAR-ES-SALAAM - NYERERE NATIONAL PARK.
Day 3: NYERERE NATIONAL PARK.
Day 4: NYERERE NATIONAL PARK.
Day 5: NYERERE NATIONAL PARK – MIKUMI NATIONAL PARK.
The park is framed the Uluguru mountains to the northeast and the Udzungwa Mountains to the southwest and Nyerere National Park to the South; the park itself consists mainly of Miombo woodland and although the scenery gets a little tedious after a while, the sighting of plain games like Impala, Buffalo, Zebra, Giraffe, wildebeest, Elephants, Hippo, and Crocodiles are common enough. One of the most principal features of Mikumi park is the Mkata River flood plain,(an area of lush vegetation which particularly attracts a lot of wildlife.)
The absence of Gazelles in this Park is curious – it seems their ecological niche is occupied by Impala. Mikumi and Nyerere National Park are lying on the same ecosystem, which covers a large part of central & Southern Tanzania. (This ecosystem stretches to within 150 km of the Mozambique border, whose Niasa Game Reserve was formerly part of it). Predators which can be seen in Mikumi, include Lion, Leopards (more difficult to see), black-backed Jackal (can sometimes be seen in the evening), and the African Civet is the nocturnal visitor in most of the Camps. Mikumi’s birdlife is profuse, with over 400 species recorded to date, many of them Eurasian migrants, present between October and April.
Day 6: MIKUMI – NATIONAL PARK – UDZUNGWA MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK.
It is a hothouse nurturing species found nowhere else on earth, a secret bank account of precious genetic stock. Of it six types of primate, two are endemic the Iringa red colobus monkey and the sanje crested Mangabey, not discovered until 1979. Four previously unknown birds including the rufous winged sunbird and new species of partridge like francolin make the Tanzania richest forest bird habitat among the three most important bird conservation areas on the continent. One of the East Africa great forests, this undisturbed habitat undoubtedly has new treasures yet to reveal. A link in the chain of East Africa eastern arch mountains, Udzungwa Park is made for hiking and climbing on the trails through the rain forest and along the escarpments.
The plateau is a natural tower top, with a view of sugar plantations against the patchwork of grassland and mountain forest extending over 100km. but the centerpiece is the Sanje River, which reinvents itself as the spectacular waterfall, plunging 170m through the forest to land in a mist in the valley below. Visit the udzungwa Park year-round, but be prepared for rain any time
