Ultra-luxurious Mwiba Lodge is nestled discreetly among gigantic boulders overlooking a rocky gorge of the Arugusinyai River in a private 126 000 acre reserve the southern Serengeti. Studded with coral and acacia trees, this fertile landscape has over 30 freshwater springs passing through it, making it a favourite locale for the elusive Mwiba leopards.

A symphony of rock, wood, canvas and thatch, Mwiba Lodge has been designed to blend perfectly with the natural surrounds of the gorge. Exquisite interiors enhance the stunning views, the food and service are sublime, and game drives, safari walks and special bush excursions for children consistently deliver fantastic wildlife encounters. During the calving season in the southern Serengeti, you are witness to the incredible spectacle of thousands upon thousands of wildebeest and their young, a time when there is an abundance of fresh grass available to provide the essential grazing for the next phase of their migration.

With the ideal blend of in-room spa treatments, fascinating cultural outings and incredible wildlife experiences, Mwiba Lodge offers a premier safari destination that will appeal to discerning travellers.

The Mwiba concession has a number of natural springs that attract an abundance of plains game and predators alike, especially during the calving season of the annual Wildebeest Migration from about January to March.

In the main building housing the library, lounge, bar and dining room, a collaboration of both traditional and modern design elements feature layers of textured creams paired with tans and accents of black and charcoal. Soft linen sofas, ornately carved tables and cascading lighting stand in contrast to dressed stone pillars and mantles. The rooms flow into each other and out onto the timber-decked infinity pool terrace that boasts wonderful views over the natural springs below. In-room spa treatments and a gym room allow you to work off the indulgences of a decadent menu served up by the chefs.

"If you are looking for a luxury, experiential and slightly off the beaten track experience in Tanzania then this is perfect! Away from the Serengeti crowds, enjoy game viewing, bush walks and night drives in the Mwiba Wildlife Reserve. If visiting between Jan-March you will also have an opportunity to see the Wildebeest whilst calving. Sundowners at the lodge with spectacular views are definitely a highlight!"
