Getting There & Away
Mikumi’s bus stand is at the western end of town on the main highway. Minibuses go frequently towards Udzungwa Mountains National Park, but you’ll need to change vehicles at Kilombero. It’s better to wait for one of the larger Dar to Ifakara buses, which begin passing Mikumi about 11am, going directly to Udzungwa's Mang'ula headquarters (Tsh7000, two hours) and on to Ifakara (Tsh15,000, 3½ hours).
Going west, buses from Dar es Salaam begin passing Mikumi en route to Iringa (Tsh9000, three hours) from about 9.30am. There’s also a direct bus from Kilombero to Iringa, passing Mikumi about 5.30am. Going east, there are large buses to Dar es Salaam (about Tsh15,000, five hours) departing at 6.30am and 7.30am.
