Many people say that Mkomazi is not a good park - what a mistake! It's great! Yes, it is very dry, but this apparently attracts the lesser Kudu - we saw really plenty of them, but of course you have to watch careful between the branches. In the evening we encountered a big herd of zebras and elands together just... More

Out of the way park, very large w. very few visitors. Although there are plenty of animals, they aren't concentrated therefore somewhat disappointing after Arusha, Manyara, Tarangire and the other parks of the Northern circuit. That being said, still plenty to see WITHOUT lines of safari vehicles and dust! Abundant avian species for birdwatchers. The visit to see the rhinos... More

Disappointing! As large as the park is there is a small area to travel and site see. The Rhinos are not there as they are being kept in an area for breeding purposes.

Mkomazi is vital refuge for two highly endangered species, the charismatic black rhino and sociable African wild dog, both of which were successfully reintroduced in the 1990s. Nomadic by nature, wild dog might be seen almost anywhere in the park, but black rhino are restricted to a fenced sanctuary, ensuring their safe keeping for future generations enjoyment and prosperity.

It is attractive and with unique animals that re beautiful. But it still needs the Government concentration on water sources to risque the lives of the animals and way to prevent poaching and encroachment that is taking place in a moment and find the best way to push people at least few kilometer from the park to safer place to...
