Mivumo River Lodge

Mivumo River Lodge is set on the banks of the spectacular Rufiji River in Tanzania’s vast Selous Game Reserve. Mivumo River Lodge is 45 Minutes away by flight from Dar-es-Salaam to Stiegler’s Airstrip and 30 Minute transfer to the lodge. By road: there are two options: the first is from Dar es Salaam to Mkongo via Kibiti (250 km). The second is from Dar es Salaam to Kisaki via Morogoro (350km). Journey times vary but are approximately 9-10 Hours. 4WD is required throughout. By train: the reserve can be reached by train from Tazara stopping at Kisaki, which is about 5-6 hours from Dar es Salaam 

Mivumo River Lodge stands high on the banks of the slow, brown Rufiji River, with glorious views down to the plunging torrents of Stiegler’s Gorge and offers just twelve luxurious rooms, each of which is housed in a timbered chalet with a 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. 

Mivumo River Lodge overlooks 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; also an exclusive aromatherapy spa, where a wide range of entirely natural massages, scrubs, and body wraps are offered. 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 kilometers 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.
