Mkomazi Umba North Tanzania Safaris
Size: 2,600 km²
Location: North-east of Tanzania, about 150 km from Moshi.
The Mkomazi-Umba Game Reserve joins the adjacent Tsavo National Park in Kenya. The Pare and the Usambara Mountains form the boundary in the south. The two mountain ranges in the background scenery, alternating from scrubland to grassland, are the reason for a such an imposing and breathtaking landscape. Tanzania Safari
Although there are not as many animals as in some of the more well-known national parks, the wonderful landscape more than compensates for this.
Besides a multitude of other game, it has the largest population of Gerenuk antelope in Tanzania. Bird enthusiasts can observe approximately 400 different species of bird life. Mkomazi-Umba is also famous for it’s breeding projects of African wild dogs and the reintroduction of the rare black rhino. Unlike some of the other parks, you are less likely to be sharing it with other visitors.
