Stanley's Kopje Mikumi Camp

The Stanley's Kopje Mikumi Camp provides guests with warm hospitality to create a relaxing bush atmosphere against which to experience the thrill of being close to the multitudes of wild animals in timeless Africa.  This is the only small, personalised camp in Mikumi and, set up on a rocky kopje on the Mkata flood plain, it presides over the best game viewing area of the park, the Mwanamboga waterhole. There are high concentrations of game, with large herds of Nyasa Blue Wildebeest, (not found in Ruaha National Park), buffalo, impala, zebra and giraffe. The Camp is named after the explorer Morten Stanley, who led an expedition through Mikumi National Park and right past the location of the Camp.
