Mkomazi Game Reserve, Tanzania, which was gazetted in 1951, lies along the border with Kenya in the north of the country and is contiguous with Tsavo National Park in Kenya(Figure 5.1). It covers an area of 3726 km2comprising hills, grassland and thick bush country. The reserve is surrounded by mountains, with the Usambara range to the south and the Pare Mountains to the west. Peaks within the reserve rise to nearly 1600 m in the north-west but the land falls away to 230 m in the eastern lowlands to meet the Umba River, which forms the south-eastern border of the reserve and which is the only natural source of permanent water.
