We are the only Eco Camp along the highway from Dar es Salaam to Mikumi National park. We can organize daytrips to the very near Mikumi, Udzungwa or Selous National Park at a reasonable price. There you can see for example zebras, giraffes, lions, elephants, buffalo. antelopes and monkeys in their natural environment. For a very small fee, our guests can engage in spot fishing on Wami River while at the same time observing abundance of hippos in their natural habitat.
