Mivumo River Lodge

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 River Lodge - The Facts

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 can be 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 polished feel, a fully equipped bathroom with permanent hot water, a bath and outdoor shower. What 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 and very quirky three bedroom villa, perfect for families or groups of friends. The aircon is an added bonus too! The main area is one three levels, the top being the chill out area with a bar, and an intimate yet seperate dining room. On the lower decks there is plenty of space to recline with a ice cold drink by the pool - all of this with a fantastic view of the river. 
The staff are all very welcoming, and you will meet the chef to discuss your meal for a 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.

Mivumo River Lodge - Reviews

The whole staff team at Mivumo were so friendly and helpful and arranged fabulous memorable moments such arranging a pop up bar on the river bank so we could watch the sunset over the river gin and tonic in hand! The food was delicious- fresh, tasty and perfectly cooked and we even had breakfast by the river in the last morning watching the baboons, hippos and crocodiles.
