13 - 14 Foxes Safari Camp - Mikumi
Foxes Safari Camp is one the small and personalized camps in Mikumi. It is set up on a rocky kopje on the Mkata flood plain, which presides over the best game viewing area of the park, the Mwanamboga Waterhole.
Not only is Mikumi National Park a great place for getting your eye in on game drives but it is also a fantastically colorful place. The open grasslands stretching out before you change through the spectrum of orange and yellows throughout the day. There are high concentrations of game with large herds of Nyasa Blue Wildebeest, buffalo, impala, zebra and giraffe. Where there are large herds, there are always plenty of predators waiting for a meal.
15 - 16 Ruaha River Lodge
The Great Ruaha River is the lifeline of the Park; we can offer you the privilege of your own riverside 'banda' designed to blend seamlessly into the surroundings. The local stone and thatch room has minimal impact on the environment and game viewing from your veranda is a relaxing and enthralling option.
