My family spent 2 nights at the camp it far exceeded our expectations. The villas are super clean with an excellent hot shower! ! The food was also amazing in a stunning setting watching animals walking by from the dinner table was so special. The staff was very warm and welcoming and we loved our day out in the game park looking at the animals. June is a perfect time to go with amazing weather.

This was my second time at Mikumi Wildlife Camp and I want to keep coming back! The welcoming is great, the rooms are gorgeous (and had ZERO mosquitos!), and the food is amazing for being in Tanzania. You don't really go to Tanzania for their cuisine, but the vegetarian dishes I got was simple but great. After a game drive, we sat in the restaurant having drinks looking at over 200 buffalos + some elephants. The place really has a great atmosphere. The staff is also very nice, always with a smile on their face! Only negative part is the highway very close, but at the same time, that is why the camp is so easy to get to. Will come back!

Our family of five visited the camp over the Easter weekend and we had a wonderful experience.

The camp offers the perfect location for game viewing because it is located inside the park (near the main gate) and does not have a perimeter wall. This means that elephants, impala, zebras and other wild animals are able to freely graze within the camp as well as close to the bandas (rooms) and restaurant area.

The bandas are clean, spacious and most importantly, bug-free. The camp has ‘family bandas’ with 2 rooms that are adjacent but do not have an adjoining door, which means young children cannot sleep alone without a parent/minder. All the beds are incredibly comfortable but we found the single beds in the adjacent banda to be incredibly narrow, even for the children. The beds are made of cement blocks and cannot therefore be moved closer to one another in order to create a wider bed.

The staff was friendly and the service was efficient although the restaurant lacked some basic supplies such cereal for the children in the morning and butter. The bar also ran out of small bottles of water by the time we were leaving. The shortage was most likely due to the fact that we visited at the tail end of the long Easter weekend, which also included an extra Tanzanian public holiday but perhaps the management should have planned its inventory better in advance.

The facilities within the camp are child friendly and although there are no specific activities to keep young children occupied, there is plenty of room for them to run around, especially in the restaurant area and them being able to watch the wild animal so close is more than sufficient.

We were also able to self-drive through the park because the roads within the park are well marked and although we didn’t spot any lions, we were able to drive very close to the giraffes, elephants, zebras, buffalo, impala and a few wildebeest. See elephants so close was an unforgettable experience, both within the camp and on the game drives.

Overall, I would recommend staying at Mikumi Wildlife Camp, if nothing else for the amazing location, but it might be advisable to call ahead and ensure that their pantry is sufficiently stocked for your dietary needs.

We absolutely loved this place, mainly because the communal areas were superb and there was also a lovely seating area for every pair of semi-detached rooms. The wildlife was nearly always in view without even having to go for a drive, although the lions roaring woke us in the night - how authentic can you get?
Staff were very friendly and helpful, cooking a special early breakfast for us on the morning we were leaving.
Drinks were very expensive here, about twice what we paid elsewhere, but the setting is so fantastic you don't mind too much.

I am not a safari expert, I have only been 6 times from South Africa to the north of Tanzania. But I have been to Mikumi twice - and I have to say that this is the hidden secret of Tanzania. Sure it has a road going through the park and this is an undeniable pain, but the road is one road and the park is massive, there is also a plan to move the reload which could happen any year now.

I stated at Mikumi wildlife camp a few years aback and again just recently- it has been totally renovated (dare I say rebuilt) and the rooms are big and top quality, the beds awesome, the food is incredible. How can you get such tender steaks and quality wine in the bush??? (Ok the pesky road).

The animals are unaffected they come right up to the restaurant area, elephants chew the grass behind your hut, you need Masai warriors to take you to your room at night. Lions roar a half mile from the camp fire at night. This is real old fashioned Africa, only a few miles from DAR es Salaam. (200)

I went with friend and our game drives took us deep and far into the bush. We saw every kind if animal bar leopards. With two or three large watering holes, we just sat there and watched the animal kingdom go by.

I appreciate the value and quality of Mikumi wildlife camp. I would say that Mikumi as a park is unmatched in Tanzania for location, value and sheer numbers of animals. It is a bit small compared to the Serengeti - but when you consider that it is effectively part of the Selous ecosystem- and linked to the Selous, it's massive, . You may realise that I like small places where you meet and see the owner. Here the owner is Onno, a dynamic guy from Holland who has been in Africa for over a decade. He is the driving force behind the changes and the really high quality improvements.he has introduced walking safaris, champagne sunset drives and takes advantage of the fact that night game drives are allowed in Mikumi,

I cannot recommend Mikumi wildlife camp enough. It's great value and real Africa a few hours from DAR es Salaam international airport,

Room Tip: They are all the same and all excellent,
