Mkomazi National Park

Mkomazi National Park a virgin breathtaking beauty exhibiting unique natural treasures and an immense sense of space. Therefore, this adds the fulfillment of high visitor’s enjoyment expectations. A much-needs bridge between northern circuit and coastal attractions.

However, every day, thousands of people pass within a few kilometers of Mkomazi on one of Tanzania’s busiest highways. These and the northern circuit safari-goers are now most welcomed to discover the treasures.

Mkomazi National Park a vital refuge for two highly species, the charismatic black rhino, and the sociable African wild dog. Therefore, anywhere in the park, however, the black rhino restricts to a fenced sanctuary.

Mkomazi supports several dry–country specialists species that are rare elsewhere in Tanzania; these include the spectacular fringe-eared oryx, with its long back–sweeping horns, and the handsome spiral-horned lesser kudu. Oddest of all is the gerenuk, a gazelle distinguished by its slender neck, bizarre alien-like head, and having the habit of standing tall on its hind legs as it stretches for acacia leaves that other browsers cannot reach.

A game reserve since 1951, this new National Park takes its name from a word from Pare tribe denoting “scoop of water”, referring to little water. Also, a fantastic destination for birdwatchers, with more than 450 avian species records. So, among them are the dry–country endemics such as the cobalt–chests vulturine guinea-fowl.
