The country is known for its natural wealth and it is home to three of the seven African wonders: ? The Great Migration in Serengeti National Park ? The Ngorongoro Crater ? Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa The national parks are famous for the multitude of animal species and The Big Five (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino) can be found in various parks.

Wildlife in Mikumi National Park
The park has a great variety of animals and most visitors come to this National Park aiming to spot the ‘Big Five’ – cheetah, lion, elephant, buffalo and rhino. Also hippos live in a pair of mud pools and are one of the highlights. Lions overlook their grassy kingdom, which is traversed by herds of zebra, wildebeest, impala and buffalo. Giraffes forage in the isolated acacia stands on the edge of the Mkata River, and shady islets are also favored by Mikumi elephants. Mkata Foodplain is perhaps the most reliable place in Tanzania to see the mighty eland, the largest antelope in the world. The equally impressive great kudu and sable antelope stay in the miombo-covered foothills that rise up on the borders of Mikumi.
Birds in Mikumi
Mikumi is a good place for bird lovers as it is home to more than 400 different species of birds! The Mkata River offers majestic views of fishing Open-billed Storks. Marabou stork, Red-billed oxpeckers, Black-bellied bustard, Francolin, Cattle egret, Guinea-fowls, Hornbill and Malachite Kingfischer are common birds in Mikumi National Park. The most colourful species are the Yellow-throated long claw, the Lilac-breasted roller and the Bateleur eagle. European migrants are common in Mikumi National Park during the rainy season.

Today we will have an early morning and visit a Maasai Village. The Maasai tribe is probably the most famous amongst the 120 tribes in Tanzania. With this visit you can immerse yourself in the culture, colours and traditions of the Maasai. The Maasai live in small huts, in the middle of nature, where lions, elephants and many other animals also live. But the Maasai know how to protect their own territory - and that of their goats and cows - in harmony with nature. Learn how they manage to live in the middle of nature and what their everyday life looks like. Try your luck to make a fire, enjoy their beautiful songs and maybe take a chance and see how high you can jump. An experience you should not miss on your Tanzania trip.
