Our day safari from Arusha or Moshi to Mkomazi offers fantastic views of Kilimanjaro and a large population of African game.
The park is an often overlooked Tanzanian gem with a number of species easier to see here than anywhere else in Tanzania.
The highlights of the park include watching rhinos at close range, the game drive might spot wild dogs, and bird watching – around 450 species of birds are also found in the park.
At 7am you will be picked up from your accommodation in Arusha or Moshi with parked lunch boxes and depart by road to Mkomazi National Park located approximately 190 km’s from Arusha/ 120 km’s from Moshi town.
Upon arrival at the park, you will proceed for a game drive looking for Oryx, gerenuk, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, jackal, elephant, buffalo, hartebeest, giraffe, warthog and crocodiles.
Mkomazi National Park shares a border with Tsavo National Park in Kenya, so game comes and goes between the parks. A visit to Nkomazi Rhino Sanctuary can be organized at an extra cost.
This allows you to learn more about the breeding program for the black rhino population, together with ongoing monitoring and anti-poaching patrols.
Enjoy your picnic lunch boxes at a designated picnic site and proceed on an afternoon game-drive. The park is a vital refuge for two highly endangered species, the charismatic black rhino and sociable African wild dog.
Both animals were successfully reintroduced in the 1990s, but black rhino are restricted to a fenced sanctuary, ensuring their safe keeping for future generation’s enjoyment and prosperity.
We depart Mkomazi National Park at aroung 4.30pm and drive back to Moshi/ Arusha.
