Mkomazi National Park
Mkomazi National Park set below the verdant slopes of the spectacular Usambara and Pare Eastern Arc Mountain ranges and overseen by the iconic snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro, Mkomazi is a virgin breathtaking beauty exhibiting unique natural treasures and an immense sense of space. All this adds to the fulfilment of enjoyment visitors can expect. Mkomazi National Park provides a much needed and beautiful bridge between the northern parks and coastal attractions.
Everyday, thousands of people pass within a few kilometres of Mkomazi on one of Tanzania’s busiest highways. These and northern circuit safari-goers are invited to discover the treasures of this wedge of hilly semi-arid savannah – home of large herds of giraffe, eland, hartebeest, zebra, buffalo and elephant.
Mkomazi is a vital refuge for two highly endangered species, the charismatic Black Rhino and sociable African Wild Dog, both of which were successfully reintroduced in the 1990s. Nomadic by nature, African Wild Dog might be seen almost anywhere in the park, but Black Rhino mare restricted to a fenced sanctuary, ensuring their safe keeping for future generations enjoyment and prosperity.
