The Mkomazi National Park is located in northeastern Tanzania on the Kenyan border, in Kilimanjaro Region and Tanga Region. The park primed below the verdant slopes of the dramatic Usambara and Pare Eastern Spark Mountain ranges and overseen by an iconic snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro.
Mkomazi It was recognized as a game reserve in 1951 and officially passed to be a national park in 2006. Every day many people pass within a few kilometers of Mkomazi on one of Tanzania’s busiest highways.
These and northern circuit safari goers are now most welcome to discover the treasures of this wedge of hilly semi-arid savannah home of large herds of giraffe, eland, elephant, zebra, buffalo and hartebeest. Mkomazi is a necessary refuge for two highly endangered species, the charismatic black rhino, and African wild dog, and both famously reintroduced in the 1990s.
Nomadic by nature, the wild dog might be seen almost anywhere in the park, but black rhino is restricted to a fenced sanctuary, ensuring their safe keeping for future generations enjoyment and prosperity. Other than game viewing at Mkomazi, also bush walking safaris are allowed to accompany by a park ranger.
