Set on the banks of the Rufiji River with views stretching to Stiegler’s Gorge, Serena’s Mivumo River Lodge enjoys a privileged location within Tanzania’s magnificent Selous Game Reserve. This vast reserve is larger than Switzerland and four times the size of the Serengeti.
An underestimated gem, the Selous is home to one of Africa’s densest populations of elephant. The terrain encompasses open savannah, woodlands and lush wetlands for you to explore on game drives, boat safaris and guided nature walks in the company of the lodge’s excellent professional guides. In addition to the rich wildlife, the reserve is a great destination for birders with twitchers recording more than 120 species in a week.
Mivumo offers everything you expect from a Serena Hotel: family-friendly child care for children over seven, culinary feasts and thrilling safari experiences, all wrapped up in an exclusive and romantic little lodge in the heart of big game country. The intimate size of the lodge – just 12 secluded chalets – means superb service, optional extras like picnics in the wilderness, and a peaceful, restful atmosphere.
