I came to Mikumi Wildlife Camp alone a few weeks ago on my first safari. And this camp is just amazing!!! The rooms, the pool, the restaurant, everything had a beautiful view to the national park. It was a peaceful place with lovely food, 5* service and the staff is so kind. I really have to come back here soon!!!

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...

Our 3 kids (aged 6,8 and 11) and they had the time of their life.

Room tip: They are all nice, but connected rooms are connected through the veranda

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.
