Serena Mivumo River Lodge
The accommodation at Serena Mivumo River Lodge provides a serene retreat amidst the unspoilt beauty of Tanzania’s stunning Selous Game Reserve. Spacious and exceedingly romantic, the 12 exclusive chalets offer thatched roofs, wooden floors and an appealing blend of Edwardian elegance and contemporary comfort. Take advantage of perks including wireless Internet and 24-hour room service, or step outside and enjoy unparalleled views of the wilderness from your exterior shower.
For a truly remarkable experience, reserve the one-of-a-kind Mivumo Villa. The beautifully designed chalets are spaced amongst the indigenous forest, and feature brushwood thatched roofs, which are high vaulted to allow for the maximum amount of light and breeze. Slightly raised on sprung wooden floors, each room features a charming mix of Edwardian crystal chandeliers, marble basins, classic safari antiques and subtly understated modern leather and rattan furniture. Lavish country house-inspired bathrooms also feature a plunge pool and an exterior shower with wilderness views. Or treat yourself to spacious elegance in the lodge’s premier accommodation. Mivumo Villa offers three double bedrooms, each with its own opulent bathroom. A private sun deck offers sun loungers, a plunge pool and a rain shower. The central area of the villa features a king-sized bed, a writing desk, a river-view lounge with an LCD TV, a double bathroom with a dressing area and a Victorian claw-foot bath. Perched on timber decks above the awe-inspiring Rufiji River, the spacious and light-filled dining room at Serena Mivumo River Lodge is an ideal spot in which to begin or end your day here in Southern Tanzania. Enjoy uninterrupted views of hippos, elephants and crocodiles that congregate on the riverbank as you dine on fresh, locally sourced fare. Savour a drink at our open-sided lounge and bar, where comfortable sofas look out over the river. Or take your meal in the bush, and be mesmerised by the magnificent natural surroundings.
