Top Tip

The river safaris and fishing trips allow you to see some spectacular sights around you – but don’t forget to look up at the majestic African fish-eagle as they circle above

Why we like it

  • The hippo of the Rufiji River make a novel alarm clock

  • Extremely welcoming and experienced staff
  • Individual thatched chalets, each with a private plunge pool

About Serena Mivumo Lodge

Stilted and standing high on the banks of the huge Rufiji River, Serena Mivumo River Lodge offers just twelve timbered chalets, which are perfect for families and couples who appreciate their own space. Each is equipped with a private viewing deck and plunge pool – enjoy the comfort of a lazy afternoon bath while watching the hippo do precisely the same in the wide river below. Traditionally thatched, with vaulted ceilings to catch the cool breeze and picture windows with views down to the plunging Stiegler's Gorge, each room blends classic safari style with ultramodern luxury. 

The spectacular Selous Game Reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it’s the largest wilderness in Africa – even larger than Switzerland, in fact. It’s also home to the greatest concentration of elephant on the planet, and the numerous lion here are relatively easy to find. Mivumo River Lodge is the perfect base for those looking for a comfortable way to experience one of the toughest and wildest region in the world.
