With a sincere feeling of an owner run Lodge, this is a little gem nestled on the Rufiji River bank. The Serena brand now own it and have been very careful to maintain its charm and authenticity whilst also introducing the extra touches of luxury and great service that they are known for.
Mivumo is set along the banks of the Rufiji River in the Sumbazi area of the Selous. Each banda and the main areas are graced by beautiful views over the river, and it is a great place to admire the game that regularly comes to drink at the rivers’ edge.
There are just 12 luxury bandas, each with a seriously luxury feel, a fully equipped bathroom with permanent hot water, a bath and outdoor shower. What really sets this lodge apart is the private veranda with plunge pool (with views over the river) that every room enjoys. It is the perfect place to cool off on a hot Selous day! There is also a beautifully appointed three bedroom villa, perfect for families or groups of friends. The aircon is an added bonus too!
Expect to sit down with the chef when you arrive and talk about your personal menu, as well as superb safari, guiding and a very polished yet charming and intimate experience. This is a versatile Lodge and in the right itinerary is perfect for families or honeymooners alike, offering game drives, walking safaris and boating with their expert guides.
