Welcome To Mkomazi National Park

About The Park

Spanning across an area of 3,234 sq. km. Mkomazi National Park is located in northeastern Tanzania, on the Kenyan border. It was set up as a game reserve in 1951 and was later upgraded to a national park in 2006. The park overlaps both the Kilimanjaro and Tanga Regions, meaning that you can catch the sight of mountains rising from every direction.

Mkomazi National Park shares its northern border with the Tsavo West National Park in Kenya and herds of migratory animals travel between these destinations based on rainfall patterns.
