DAY 3: SELOUS GAME RESERVE – MIKUMI NATIONAL PARK

After the walk, game viewing en-route to Mikumi National Park.

After an early breakfast, you will go on a full day game drive in the park. The Mikumi flood plain is the main feature of the park along with the bordering mountain ranges. Animals commonly found here include lion, eland, hartebeest, buffalo, wildebeest, giraffe, zebra, hippo and elephant.
