Mkomazi National Park is positioned on 3270 square Kilometers of land on the Northern side of Tanzania. Although it is very remote and inaccessible, it was a well-established game reserve in 1951. Its importance was realized after 1989 when the government gave it financial support, such as the Ngorongoro and Serengeti National Parks in Tanzania.

During the first day, visitors are picked from Mambo View Point, their accommodation area, by walking safaris, which continue even after entering the site. The safaris and a game drive allow tourists to watch the rhinos, wild dogs, and birds. The first day allows visitors to understand the proper location of the park and view Mt. Kilimanjaro, Usambara and Pare Mountains to the south. The view of Tsavo National park, migrating elephants, zebras, and the larger ecosystem is clear. Tourists are driven back to their accommodation zones in the evening.
The game drive allows tourists to view the southern side of Mkomazi, the Sahel zone, and a classic dry-country reserve of the grey-green Nyika bush, with the baobab trees and the isolated rocky hills. The bushes open the umbrella of savannah woodlands, acacias, and mbugas. Then, at sunset, tourists drive back to their accommodation zones.
The tourists arrive at the gate by 8.00a.m, where they will board a safari vehicle for the day's tour. The visit involves watching the giraffes, gerenuk, hartebeest, arid Nyika, lesser kudu, Impala, and elands. The gazelles share the park with buffalos, elephants, cheetahs, leopards, and lions, among 78 other species of mammals.
The fifth day starts at 9.00 a.m; the tourists are picked up at the gate by the game warden. Then, they board the walking safari vehicle for easier viewing of the elephants, black rhinos at their sanctuary, and the African wild dog. Mkomazi National Park welcomes visitors to view the black Rhino which is confined in an area with having electric fence while using their walking safaris. Finally, the visitors are driven back to their accommodation rooms at sunset.
The fourth day will begin around 8.00a.m; after every tourist has arrived at the gate. The game drive will involve walking safaris to stop and watch birds. Mkomazi National Park is home to more than 400 species, including hornbills, guinea fowl, doves, martial eagles, and the violet wood hoopoe.
