Vuma Hills is 15 minutes from the entrance of Mikumi National Park, in a peaceful location in the hills. It has 16 spacious and comfortably furnished tents with en-suite bathrooms and large verandas offering great views.

Although we haven't yet had a chance to visit since the upgrade, we understand the platforms have all now been extended with new and improved bathrooms and brand-new, more spacious tents.

The cosy bar area is open-sided and usually has a roaring log fire. From the large deck you can have a drink as the sun goes down. Meals are taken in the adjacent dining area. Vuma Hills also has a small swimming pool which makes a good spot to relax after a day out game-viewing.

The camp offers game drives in 4WD vehicles with experienced guides, and other activities like a scenic breakfast or lunch in the bush or a day excursion to Udzungwa Mountains National Park.
Mikumi is home to many different mammal species and offers various habitats for them. Look out for plains game such as wildebeest, impala, zebra, giraffe, buffalo or even African wild dogs if you are very lucky.
