Mkomazi national park Day Tour

Trip Introduction

Duration: 12 hours

The Park finds itself in a beautiful setting with both the Pare and Usambara mountains towering above its boundaries. Depending on the weather, Mount Kilimanjaro can also be seen from the park. To the south, the pare and Usambara mountains form a dramatic backdrop and to the north, Kenya’s vast Tsavo National Park shares a border with Mkomazi, making common ground for migratory herds of elephants, oryx, and zebra during the wet season. Migratory species are also present here such as the Eurasian roller. Together with Tsavo, it forms one of the largest and most important protected ecosystems on earth.

Mkomazi national park is the compounds for African wild dog, and the extensive, patrolled sanctuary for the white and black rhinoceros (which are breeding) have put the reserve on the map, giving it international recognition.

Mkomazi derives its name from the Pare-ethnic language; “Mko and Mazi”. “Mko” means a traditional tiny wooden spoon used by the Pare people for eating and “Mazi” means water. This implies that the water in the Park is hardly enough to fill up the wooden spoon. It covers an area of 3,245sq km/1,240mi²
