Vuma Hills Tented Camp

Vuma Hills Tented Camp is the closest national park to Dar es Salaam. Set in the hills overlooking the Mkata flood plain of Mikumi National Park, it nestles between the Ulguru and Rubeho Mountains.

As part of the Selous ecosystem, it benefits from the highest game density of the entire conservation area.

The camp has 16 exceptionally spacious tents, each with private facilities with solar heated showers, and flush toilets. Each tent has a shady veranda where you can sit and relax after a hard days game viewing.

The restaurant overlooks the swimming pool and it is here that you can enjoy meals cooked with fresh produce from Tanzania’s highland farms. Vuma is translated from Kiswahli, which means ‘a good rumour that is spread with the blowing wind’ and you can understand why as you enjoy your surroundings.

Being just 15 minutes from Mikumi National Park means it’s easy to get near to the wildlife. Alternatively, you can cool down with a swim in the small, but refreshing, pool or take an excursion to the Udzungwa Mountains, trekking under the rainforest canopy to see waterfalls and the breathtaking views of the Rift Valley.

Mikumi was appointed a National Park in 1964 and is named after the spindle shaped Borassas palm trees. The Mikata plain support vast herds of game such as wildebeest, impala, zebra and giraffe. In the surrounding hills you will find greater kudu, roan and sable antelope. There is every chance of sighting the African Wild Dog, which hunts the plains in packs.
