Mkomazi National Park
The newly gazetted National Park Mkomazi
is sometimes referred to as the last frontier in northern Tanzania.
The Reserve covers an area of 3,700 sq. km. protected on its northern
border by Tsavo National Park in Kenya. There is a wide variety
of flora and fauna with 78 species of mammals including elephant,
kudu, hartebeest, giraffe and aardwolf. Endangered African wild
dog and black rhino have been introduced to Mkomazi with the aid
of the George Adamson/Tony Fitzjohn African Wildlife Preservation
Trust. Visitors can see both species and learn more about ongoing
conservation and breeding programs. There are approximately 450
recorded species of birds in Mkomazi, making it a birdwatcher’s
paradise. The Reserve represents species and ecosystems not commonly
found in East Africa making it an unusual alternative or addition
to a Northern Circuit safari.
