There are two good tented camps in Mikumi National Park, both run by the Fox family and well priced by Tanzanian standards. Most people visit Udzungwa as a day trip out of Mikumi, but those who want to explore the park more thoroughly could base themselves at the Udzungwa Mountain View Hotel (tel. 023/262-0218; www.genesismotel.com; $30 en suite double B&B; $5 per person camping), a decent, locally run place only 10 minutes' from walk from Mang'ula and park headquarters.

Note: Because this is the bush, in most cases, there is either no electricity in the room or a limited solar or generator supply.
