Southern Tanzania: Mikumi Vuma Hills Camp

Mikumi Vuma Hills Camp

Vuma Hills Tented Camp is perched above the trees in the hills overlooking the Mkata plain in Mikumi
National Park. The accommodation has been recently renovated. With the 16 spacious tents in close
proximity & swimming pool, this camp is ideally suited to families. Each tent includes a comfortable
double bed & single bed with en suite bathrooms, hot showers & flush toilets, and a shaded veranda to
enjoy the view. You can choose between guided game drives in specially designed open game viewing
vehicles or trekking to Sanje waterfall in nearby Udzungwa Mountain Park.

VUMA in Kiswahili means ‘a good rumour that is spread with the blowing wind’. Now a reality rather than
just a rumour it’s the ideal place to evoke the true spirit of Africa.
