Mikumi safari 3 days

A perfect safari to one of Tanzania's hidden treasures; Mikumi National Park. Mikumi is a vast wilderness area about 4 hours (by car) west of Dar Es Salaam. On the plains of Mikumi, sometimes called little Serengeti, you can see many animals like buffalo, warthog, baboon, giraffe, zebra, lion and many others but despite being close to Dar Es Salaam there are normally no hordes of safari cars here. This is the perfect safari for those of you who have only a few days to spare and want a great value-for-money safari starting and ending in Dar Es Salaam.
