    Welcome to Vuma Hills Tented Camp
Vuma Hills Tented Camp is perched above the trees stretching over the seemingly endless wilderness south west of Mikumi National Park.

Activities & Safaris

The little-known Mikumi National Park is well stocked with big game, a wide variety of birds, all set in beautiful golden grasslands, against a backdrops of the Udzungwa and Uluguru Mountains.
