Mikumi National Park
The Mikumi National Park near Morogoro, Tanzania,  was established in 1964. It covers an area of 3230 km² hence is the  fifth largest in the country. The park is crossed by Tanzania's A-7  highway.

The Mikumi is bordered to the south with the Selous Game Reserve, the two areas forming a unique ecosystem.

Two other natural areas bordering the national park are the Udzungwa Mountains and Uluguru Mountains.

The landscape of Mikumi is often compared to that of the Serengeti.  The road that crosses the park divides it into two areas with partially  distinct environments. The area north-west is characterized by the  alluvial plain of the river basin Mkata. The vegetation of this area  consists of savannah dotted with acacia, baobab, tamarinds, and some rare palm.  In this area, at the furthest from the road, there are spectacular rock  formations of the mountains Rubeho and Uluguru. The southeast part of  the park is less rich in wildlife, and not very accessible.
