Mikumi National Park is among Tanzania’s lesser-known wilderness areas called the Southern Circuit. Thanks to low visitor traffic, an experience with the wildlife in Mikumi is extraordinarily intimate and uniquely private. Take a safari through Mikumi National Park in photos.

Heavy rains transform the arid landscape. The wetter months are a verdant sanctuary for young animals and birds.
