Mikumi was gazetted as a National Park in 1964 and is named after the spindle shaped Borassus palm trees. The Mkata plain supports vast herds of plains game such as wildebeest, impala, zebra and giraffe, hunted by their associated predators; while you are more likely to find Lichtenstein's hartebeest, greater kudu, roan and sable antelope in the surrounding less fertile hills. Although game sightings can never be guaranteed, there are lots of sightings of the African 'wild dog' hunting the plains in packs.


Your spacious and comfortable tent is one of sixteen, all with a rather old fashioned colonial décor. Sleeping under canvas at Vuma is a far cry from the discomfort usually associated with camping. Complete with shaded wooden veranda at the front and en suite bathroom facilities at the back, there is not much to be asked for.

- Each tent has a double and a single bed.
- All tents are mosquito proof.
- Electricity is provided by generator and there are lights and sockets (3 pin square 220 V) in each tent.

- The ensuite bathroom has a shower, basin and toilet.
- All water is solar heated.

The game drives are led by a trained, experienced English speaking guide who will ensure that you get the most out of every safari you make.

Our opinion

Vuma Hills is well positioned within the Mikumi National Park. All of the tents have excellent views although may not be suitable for those who have trouble with slopes. We think that this camp is excellent for those looking for a short safari without breaking the bank.The camp is also very private, as are the game drives, which we think makes it a great choice for honeymooners.
