Overview

Experience Camp Bastian Set In Unique And Natural Surroundings As You Explore Mikumi National Park.

Camp Bastian Mikumi is set in unique and natural surroundings. The Camp is located in the buffer zone of Mikumi National Park, about 10km from the main gate and A7 Dar es Salaam-Zambia/Malawi Highway. Each Cottage has a private verandah and private bathroom attached, and is decorated with locally made furniture and fabrics to keep an authentic atmosphere in the rooms. You will find everything you need during your stay, complimentary bottled water, towels and mosquito netting, hot water and electricity 24hrs.

Mikumi National Park abuts the northern border of Africa’s biggest game reserve – the Selous – and is transected by the surfaced road between Dar es Salaam and Iringa. It is thus the most accessible part of a 75,000 square kilometer (47,000 square mile) tract of wilderness that stretches east almost as far as the Indian Ocean. The open horizons and abundant wildlife of the Mkata Floodplain, the popular centerpiece of Mikumi, draw frequent comparisons to the more famous Serengeti Plains.
