Driving from Dar, Mikumi is the closest park where you can expect to see lots of animals. Even before the park gate, we saw elephants, giraffes, monkeys, zebras and gazelles. The lodge is very close to the gate, yet set in peace and tranquility without an external fence. You will be guided to your room or restaurant by friendly Masai guards, and probably welcomed by Onno - the friendly and helpful dutch guy who is running the place. (Thank you som much for a great stay Onno!)
I am hoping to be back in a few months :)
We had like 24 hours in the park, and or expectations where more than satisfied. We where lucky to see hippos dive into the hippo pool in the morning (ask for the time at the lodge), found a lion who had cubs, studied lots of elephants, giraffes and zebras. We did not see the Leopard this time...
