Mkomazi National Park lies just south of the Kenya border in the shadows of the Pare Mountains. Although it is difficult to spot game in Mkomazi, its dry savannah is one of the best spots to bird watch in Northern Tanzania. There are more than 400 bird species and virtually no tourists or safari vehicles, even during peak safari season. The reserve is also home to the Mkomazi Rhino Project, a conservation effort that is reintroducing black rhinos and African wild dogs to the area. Walking safaris are allowed in Mkomazi.
