Selous Mivumo River Lodge

Selous, Tanzania

Part of the Tanzania Safari & African Safari Collection

Standing high on the banks of the slow, brown Rufiji River with glorious views down to the plunging torrents of Stiegler's Gorge, the Serena Mivumo River Lodge offers just twelve luxurious rooms each of which is housed in a timbered chalet with private viewing deck and plunge pool. Traditionally thatched, with high vaulted ceilings and picture windows, each room features an engaging mix of classic safari antiques and ultra-modern leather and rattan styled furniture. Softly lit and breeze-cooled, the lodge offers the ultimate escape to one of the world's last undiscovered wilderness frontiers.

Overlooking the Rufiji River, the spacious central dining room, lounge, library and bar each have their own spacious timber and thatched chalets which are interconnected by broad wooden walkways offering excellent views of the hippos and elephants of the riverbank. High on the river bank is a spectacular ‘infinity' pool and sundeck.

Vast, pristine and largely undiscovered, the spectacular Selous Game Reserve is a World Heritage Site and the largest expanse of game reserve in Africa. Covering 55,000 square kilometres of rolling savannah, lakes, rivers and deltas, it is four times the size of the Serengeti and larger than the entire nation of Switzerland. Home to the largest concentrations of elephants in the world, this unique wildlife arena also boasts some of the most exclusive and pioneering boating safaris that Africa has to offer.
