Nestled between the Uluguru mountains to the northeast, and the Rubeho and Udzungwa mountains and the Rift Valley escarpment to the south west it benefits from the highest game density of the entire Selous conservation area. The Mkata plain supports vast herds of plains game such as wildebeest, impala, zebra and giraffe, hunted by their associated predators.
In the surrounding hills you will find Lichtenstein's hartebeest, greater kudu, roan and sable antelope. Whilst not guaranteed, there have been numerous sightings of the African 'wild dog' hunting the plains in packs. Vuma Hills Camp comprises of sixteen luxury tents, all furnished with old style colonial decor. Complete with hot water, private bathroom facilities, mosquito nets and electricity, the tents each have their own wooden veranda out front for relaxing. The dining room overlooks the swimming pool creating an oasis of tranquility to the dusty heat of the lowlands in which to enjoy delicious meals.
