Your safari to Mikumi National Park & Masai Boma:

Day 1: Zanzibar – Dar es Salaam – Mikumi

Welcome to Tanzania! We will pick you at your location in Zanzibar at about 5:00 AM and take you to airport for your early flight to Dar es Salaam.

Split into two parts by Tanzam Highway, Mikumi National Park offers you a chance of game viewing even before you actually enter the park gate. Animals often cross the highway or feed by the road. Featuring scenic landscapes, few visitors and abundance of species, Mikumi is sure to become one of your most memorable destinations.
As you arrive to Mikumi town, you will check-in to your hotel. After that we will take you to visit the real settlement of Masai tribe (or Masai boma, as they call it), where you will immerse yourself in daily life of one of the brightest ethnic groups in Africa.

Enjoy a well-deserved dinner, and call it a day in your authentic lodge or tented camp.
